Individualized care is what we mean when we speak of \u201cpatient\u201d or \u201chealth.\u201d The world is afraid of individualism, and this is magnified in healthcare. Prevention, telemedicine and wellness each address healthcare at an arm\u2019s length.\u00a0 \nPerson-centric and patient-centric care touches, you the individual. The symmetric democratization balances the knowledge-driven power of medicine as power shifts from the doctor to the patient. Personal health is about more than analytical responses, and interoperability. Person-centric care stems from destructing the vision of the masses and creating concrete cures that change individual lives today, not tomorrow. Erecting power from family, friends, and communities must solve problems.\nCommunities are support groups for comforting the sick. What if tomorrow they were enablers for the cures? How society views personal health, must change. There is no such thing as a common disease. Rethinking N of 1 and M2M (machine-to-machine), might offer insight into new analytical topologies that will be the new platform for tomorrow\u2019s cures. No more talk of making an impact, make an impact today \u2013 the cure we solve together could be yours.\nIntegrity sans central authority\nData loss, data fraud, and data alterations are no longer possible with blockchain identity schemes. These new identity schemes are changing the roles of insurance companies and insurance providers with the introduction of new permission frameworks. These new data storages frameworks could accelerate population health data.\u00a0 For example, when a person dies, this could be a trigger a blockchain event to authorize the release of their medical records. The blockchain permits the release of the medical records for the benefit of medical research and later adds the records to the disease repository of a global database of sequenced genomes. Over time society gets smarter, with minimal personal risk.\nCollaborative consumption for patients like us\nCollaborative consumption is reshaping the economy and consumers are responding.\u00a0 Owning or buying a product is being replaced by leasing or sharing in the shared economy.\u00a0 Companies across the globe are buying into the models with new distribution channels bucking prevailing trends and consumers are taking action. Product services systems (paying for usage and access over ownership), redistribution markets (bartering, trading and sharing or swapping goods), and collaborative lifestyles (sharing intangibles) have triggered a new business philosophy; the introduction of the shared economy.\nThe shared economy is all the buzz.\u00a0 Automotive and Uber is not the only industry taking an interest. Across the world, manufacturers realize the value in the sharing economy.\u00a0\u00a0 For example, Maschinenring is exploring leasing machinery for agriculture and forestry. LiquidSpace and Ikea are playing in the used furniture market, and FedEx TechConnect is beginning to repair consumer electronics taking a lesson from Best Buy's Geek Squad.\u00a0 By selling the service, not the product and supporting customers in their attempts to resell, businesses can benefit from unused resources and capacities.\nLet\u2019s make it personal and apply collaborative consumption to individual health. Pooling resources with others that have the same variations on one or more of the 46 human chromosomes would be \u201chealthy collaborative consumption.\u201d Using blockchain to authorize the sharing knowledge and economic benefits of scale would decrease healthcare costs and start solving particular individual problems. Isn\u2019t healthcare collaborative consumption the genuine definition of population health? Make the patient group impacted or affected by the outcome by being part of the process.\nEven better, empower the patients to lead the charge to find cures, who else would be more motivated to discover success, no matter how aloof. Welcome to Uber Health 2.0, where based on DNA sequencing you can locate individuals with similar health conditions, leveraging big data analytics for precision medicine leading to better individual health outcomes. Blockchain technology could provide conditional access to medical records and health related information. Context-driven experience expanded to contextually driven data access. Platforms need to improve, riding on the wave of patient behavior change before we\u2019ll experience this new reality.\nThe patient will see you now\nDoctor house calls were 40 percent of all doctor-patient meetings in 1960, by 1980 that number was down to 0.6 percent. When did society determine that the frail and sick need to travel for care? At what point did the patient\u2019s voice get softer. It\u2019s true the trend to quantify oneself could be mainstream by 2020. The rapid adoption of wearables, nanodevices, and ingestibles, suggests that there will be a tipping point at which point physician trust will be achieved.\u00a0 What platforms drive quantification? How will experience unfold when leaned against social context? What engine will drive clinical decisions?\nPlecosystems, are a multi-platform ecosystem, coined by John Mattison MD, Assistant Medical Director and Chief Medical Information Officer at Kaiser Permanente. Plecosystems, are made up of six platform types:\n1.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Services platforms e.g. cloud, DNA sequencing\n2.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Data platforms e.g. microbiome, wearables\n3.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 API platforms e.g. Apple, EHR vendors\n4.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Experience platforms e.g. social-connected, empathic designs\n5.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Financial platforms e.g. fit-for-purpose, state of life-cycle\n6.\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 Socio-cultural e.g. values, ethical platforms\nBlockchain can unlock barriers to identifying schemes for personal health and chronic illness management, driven by the conditional access provided by the patient. The symmetric democratization of healthcare will give patients back control. Health is personal and must be individualized. Forming communities to leverage the demand-side economies of scale increases the value as more patients are impacted and become absorbed into a community to find a cure. A true person-centric network effect.
