The blockchain healthcare platform Solve.Care has announced the launch of the first blockchain enabled tele-consultation network, Global Telehealth Exchange (GTHE), in 20 countries across Europe, Americas, Asia, Africa, Middle East, and Oceania with plans for further global expansion to cover almost all other countries.
How does it work?
GTHE is a secure, peer-to-peer, decentralized network that facilitates teleconsultation services between patients and physicians, across geographical boundaries, and features instant search, availability, and digital payments.
GTHE is secured by blockchain, and is the first digital network of its kind, with high levels of privacy, and a global payment facility based on the SOLVE token. GTHE allows any physician who wishes to practice telemedicine to publish their rates, qualifications, and availability, and is instantly accessible to patients on their mobile phones via the Care.Wallet application (free download available on Apple and Google stores.)
GTHE is available in: Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, India, Israel, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, and United Kingdom.
Solve.Care also announced its GTHE ambassadors network in over 30 countries, made up of qualified and respected clinicians who are actively engaged in helping GTHE become more physician friendly. Any physician interested in signing up for GTHE can do so online.
On the record
“We firmly believe that blockchain has the power to revolutionize healthcare. We are making GTHE available in five continents,” said Pradeep Goel, CEO of Solve.Care. “Our innovative use of blockchain and digital assets, addresses the real challenges patients and physicians are facing today when trying to find, access, and pay for healthcare services. The need for secure and efficient patient centric healthcare has never been more pronounced, and we are proud that GTHE is now available to many who need it to take better care of themselves and their loved ones.”
He continued, “It is a significant milestone for the blockchain, digital assets and digital healthcare industries. Using blockchain, we are able to enforce the sovereignty of both physicians and patients, while providing unparalleled data security and instant payments.”
“GTHE uses blockchain and digital currency to dramatically improve access, transparency, and auditability of all consultations, always maintaining rights and privacy of patients and physicians. GTHE tracks data ownership and data use, where patients consent drives record sharing, treatment plans, billing, and payment, doing away with repeated and unnecessary forms, and greatly streamlining the delivery of healthcare.”
