Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Cura Network is a global decentralized health system comprising of entities collaborating and sharing data with each other to promote, restore or maintain health.
We aim to improve the healthcare universe by making use of blockchain technology to create a unified platform that will power a plethora of health services.
In the end, our goal is to integrate patients, specialists, providers and third-party app developers, into a blockchain ecosystem, which will make health transactions truly efficient, secure, explicit, fast and reliable.
How are you different?
We are building a platform that is actually usable by the non-technical populace. Our design goals are geared toward maximum inclusion of all healthcare stakeholders; even Lower and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) with dysfunctional health systems and poor Internet coverage. We will be the first healthcare blockchain project that offers USSD transactions facilitating seamless global access for everyone; this is a low cost healthcare alternative. We are maintaining the true culture of decentralization down to a distributed file system for health data storage. Cost savings in storage. High efficiency in data transfer with persistent availability. Simultaneous data delivery across multiple computers.
We present on-chain self-sovereign identity with unique role base attributes. Each entity on our custom blockchain is given a Cura Network Identity (CNID) managed by an easy-to-use mobile client.
More than being a unified platform that powers a plethora of health service applications both on-chain and off-chain, we are concerned about an equitable economy between all entities through inbuilt monetization at the very core. Patients, specialists, providers, and app developers can earn Curs in an equitable system for data or services shared.
