US-based healthcare Blockchain-as-a-Service company, Timicoin/TimiHealth has announced the release of the TimiPatient App in the Apple App Store and Google Play store to secure and control personal health data.

According to the organisation, their TimiPatient App is the first healthcare app giving individual consumers access to a platform utilising blockchain technology.

Core features of the app will include integration with a third-party EMR integration partner, individual data input including Rx, and access to tokenisation platform and TimiWallet.

TimiHealth’s EMR integration partner is providing access to over 250 health organisations in the US and 30+ EMR systems. This partnership and other future integration partners will continue to power the access of personal medical data into a singular platform and via the TimiPatient app.

Some immediate participating systems include the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, University of Michigan Medicine, Atrium Health, Cleveland Clinic, Dignity Health and Mount Sinai Health, among others.

“We are empowering consumers to realise the ability to own, control, secure, and tokenise your health information in blockchain technology with our TimiPatient app,” said Managing Director and Co-founder of Timicoin/TimiHealth, Will Lowe.

“We understand the importance of putting out a platform that has immediate utility for consumers, both in bringing in their data quickly with integration partners and exposure to the tokenisation platform to acclimate to the power of blockchain,” continued  Lowe.

The launch of the app is part of TimiHealth’s strategy to roll out an entire tokenised healthcare ecosystem. Consumers will soon have access to TimiDNA, an affiliated company which will be the flagship tokenised genetics platform, and the TimiHealth ecosystem, which will be a user friendly marketplace to allow research organisations to search and purchase health data with the permission and to the benefit of individual consumers.
