A revolution is coming… healthbank

One of the greatest adventures in healthcare is about to begin. Everything that CAN be connected WILL be connected. Every day, on average, an average human generates 500 megabytes of data. If you wanted to back up just one day of this data for the entire world, and you printed it on an A4 sheet of paper, double-sided, font-size 12, and you stacked it up, it would make a stack of paper that would reach all the way to the sun, 4 times. Every day!!!

With this data, we have, over the last few years built thousands of data silos that collect data. We have tried to use and understand it. But because it is heavily siloed, with no communication between the silos, the data is not really useful. Up to now, most exercises in Big Data have simply been exercises in bean counting…

Just imaging if we could put all this data in one single silo, to start understanding it, to develop better systems, to make the world a better place…

That is healthbank…

Although the market for data storing and processing is very competitive, healthbank is unique in the sense that it is the only platforms that aggregates voluntary user data with clinical research in a Data for Good program. Other platforms offer money for data, or payment for clinical studies, but healthbank is truly the only platform where, if you share your data and become a member, you not only retain ownership of your data, but also acquire part ownership of the company itself.

healthbank is a health data hub, based in Switzerland. It is an international secure platform for storing and using medical data. It is a Data for Good project. It allows users to upload their healthcare data on a secure server in Switzerland so that it can be monetized and used for medical research. healthbank belongs to its users. healthbank is the world’s first global people-owned platform for managing health and medical data in one secure database.

healthbank empowers people all across the globe to exchange their health data on a uniquely neutral and independent platform. It offers patients, providers, and healthcare professionals a secure and trusted environment to exchange all their health-related data, from fitness and medical data to personal health records, eMedications, medical therapy plans, and much more.


healthbank is revolutionizing how personal healthcare data is exchanged, stored and monetized. Healthcare data is complex — it often is stored in closed ecosystems, sits dormant, and is hardly ever seen by the end user — the patient. Exchanging personal healthcare data is difficult — there is a question of trust — so patients and care providers rarely have a complete record of any individual. But patients increasingly have more data and choices at their fingertips, and healthbank’s ecosystem enables users to securely store and exchange data with a range of healthcare, pharmaceutical and wellness service providers. By operating a health data exchange platform, we connect different stakeholders in the health ecosystem — at the user’s request. healthbank provides an independent and neutral solution that only the user has access to.

Based in Switzerland, healthbank was founded in 2013 by a team of 28 academics, entrepreneurs, and healthcare experts with the goal of giving back control of personal health data to the rightful owners, the people.

The creation of a new model of health and healthcare is the greatest single business opportunity of our lifetimes…

The creation of a new model of health and healthcare is the greatest single business opportunity of our lifetimes, and we expect it to be accompanied by a profound and lasting cultural change.

Connection is everywhere and is a natural evolution of technology, but has lately been turned into a new Nirvana for business. Healthcare data is not just the future of medicine, but its actual present. Tomorrow’s healthcare systems will consist of solutions, not for everyone, but indeed for each and every single one of us.

And that is healthbank…

I recently read the biography of Yuri Gagarin, the first man in outer space. In his biography he recounts a special moment, when his spaceship, the Vostok, turned around in space and headed back towards planet earth. Yuri Gagarin recounts an incredible experience, when he was floating in outer space, and was the first person in the history of the world to see planet earth suspended in space. It was a magical moment…

As he was staring into space, in complete silence, he suddenly heard a tapping sound at the door of his space shuttle… It took him about 30 seconds to realize that what he was hearing was the sound of his own heart…

It takes a special set of circumstances to hear the beat of one’s own heart. But for the first time, with all the magic of new technologies, we are beginning to hear the heartbeat of the medical industry, the sound of our future.

About to launch it’s ICO, healthbank is much more than a simple Swiss initiative. It will change the world around us. For better…

The healthbank pre-ICO is running now until Q4/2018.

The healthbank main ICO will be running Q4/2018 and early 2019.
