As many of us might already know, the use of blockchain has spread far beyond the realms of payment solutions at this point. Today, blockchain technology has been implemented for services as diverse as Data Sharing, Health Care and even Social Networking.
AIDOC is a medical platform that makes use of the crypto network to help deliver users with a wide array of healthcare services.
As mentioned earlier, AIDOC is a ‘crypto based healthcare client’ that makes use of a patient's medical data to provide him/her with a detailed analytical report regarding their problem. To be more specific, AIDOC uses an AI system called “Smart Doctor” that has been designed to accurately diagnose and provide patients with an insight into their present medical condition.
At this point, it should also be mentioned that AIDOC possesses the ability to recreate a 3D representation of one’s body based upon all of the data that is gathered via its core sensory input mechanisms. AIDOC takes into consideration our vital stats and other crucial details to slowly map out a high detail image (through the use of an “advanced imaging technology”).
Additionally, from a hardware standpoint, we can see that AIDOC comes loaded with sensors as well as certain IoT applications that enable the product to create an ecosystem that is able to deliver a wide range of healthcare services. Lastly, according to the official company website, we have found that the developers over at AIDOC are currently working on creating their own blockchain technology.
Through the use of this network, AIDOC will be able to power its AI based medical analysis system in a completely transparent and decentralised manner. Not only that, it will also allow for better record management of crucial/ sensitive patient related data.
How Does the System Function?
As mentioned earlier, through the incorporation of blockchain technology, AIDOC has been designed to create an “intelligent medical value chain” that will be referred to as the AIDOC chain. Though the use of this network, this platform will be able to bring together industry personnel, patients, medical resources so as to maximize the delivery of high value services.
From a more technical aspect, we can see that this platform consists of three core components. They include:
- Bit Digital Person
- Life Bank,
- AI Doctor or AIDOC.
In terms of its working mechanism, customers need to start by uploading their health information and vital signs onto the system. When this is done, users receive certain coins in the form of rewards. After the data has been uploaded, a digitization process is initiated, wherein all of the patient's vital information is converted into a profile that is then referred to as the “Bit Digital Person”.
Though the use of this profile, the AI based doctor is able to investigate our case, and thoroughly analyse all of our records. All of this is done via the use of “algorithms” that are based on the latest medical knowledge and diagnostic information.
This data is then sent to a third party doctor for further analysis, and based upon additional evaluations a diagnosis is doled out. At this point, it should also be mentioned that the more accurate and comprehensive the patient data is, the better the recommendations and advice given will be.
What is the Purpose of the Life Bank?
The LifeBank can be thought of as a repository of key medical data. It contains sensitive information regarding patients and can also serve as a trading place for medical services. In terms of its security, the bank has been encrypted via the use of “homomorphic privacy measures” that allow for complete data security.
In addition to this, there are also other measures (differentiated encryption) that have been used to bolster the security of the lifebank.
What Problems is AIDOC Looking to Address?
From statistical data gathered from various peer reviewed journals, we have found that there exists today, a serious issue of data storage and handling within the medical industry. This is affirmed by the fact that most patient related data is stored on private servers that are owned by medical institutions (which are highly vulnerable to security breaches).
(ii) Data Tampering:
This is another issue that is becoming prevalent within today’s medical industry. In recent years, there have been numerous instances of data leaks that have been reported by the media at large, thereby raising suspicions as to whether the current safety protocols that are available are good enough or not.
Since medical data is stored largely in isolated settings, there is a problem of effective data sharing between institutions that needs to be addressed.
Who is AIDOC Meant For?
Though the use of high quality sensors, users are able to obtain real time data that pertains to crucial aspects of their health. All of this is done via the use of native tokens that can be used to purchase
- Diagnostic information from qualified medical experts.
- Health insurance
- Medical services including devices, softwares etc.
(ii) Insurance Providers:
Though the use of AIDOC, insurance providers can create specialised plans for customers. The platform is designed in such a way that, as a patient starts to heal and become better, his/her premiums start to drop accordingly.
(iii) Pharma Providers:
Another beneficiary of this service can be drug makers who can purchase data from the company’s LifeBank to create specialised medicines that are in demand at any given time by the consumer market at large.
(iv) Technology Companies:
AIDOC can help tech companies create better equipment through the procuration of medical data. As a result of this, patients can obtain better health related advice in a timely fashion.
What Hardware Technology is AIDOC Using?
As mentioned earlier, AIDOC will offer customers with a wide array of diagnostic sensors that will be able to look at various aspects of our health. Some of these products include:
- Optical Sensor: this is a light based tool that has been designed to keep an accurate tab on a patient's “blood oxygen levels”. In addition to this, the sensor also allows for an accurate reading of the ‘blood flow velocity’ of a person.
- Bioelectricity Sensor: this is a highly specialised tool that has been designed to obtain accurate ECG and EEG data. It can also be used to measure fat content.
- Pulse Wave Sensor: as the name suggests, this is a measurement device that is able to calculate our blood pressure, pulse rate etc.
- Weight Sensor: this diagnostic tool is designed to help calculate our body mass index (BMI).
- Heat Flux Sensor: in line with its name, this sensor is designed to carefully monitor our body’s heat consumption, blood glucose levels and metabolism rate.
AIDOC Token Details
According to the company’s official whitepaper, we can see that there will be a total of 7,77,777,777 AIDOC tokens that will be created. Out of this entire figure
- 45% of the currency pool has been set aside for issuance.
- 35% of all tokens will be distributed via the ICO.
- The remaining 20% of the tokens have been reserved for mining purposes, as well as for use by the core development team.
Who is Behind The AIDOC Project?
According to our research, we have found that AIDOC is the brainchild of a Canadian entrepreneur called Alvin Zhao. He possesses a medical background, and has been in the healthcare sector for over 12 years now. In the past, he has worked with companies that were primarily involved in the creation of novel medical devices and technologies.Other key personnel involved with this venture include Norbert Alder and Warren Kok. Both of these individuals also possess solid credentials, and can be contacted via their LinkedIn or Social media profiles.
