2) What is Doctor Smart?

Doctor Smart is a blockchain ecosystem for digital healthcare and wellness services. You can use Doctor Smart 24/7 to get instant medical advice from a physician, a dietitian, a fitness expert or even a vet — all at a lower cost than you would normally expect from traditional services.

Doctor Smart aims to give millions of people access to quality healthcare, regardless of their income level or place of residence. Our goal is to help improve medical support and overall quality of life.

The Doctor Smart ecosystem will use blockchain technology and smart contracts to integrate innovative new technologies with the infrastructure of the traditional healthcare system, such as offline medical facilities and insurance companies.

3) What are the Major Features and Services provided by Doctor Smart?

Doctor Smart is using existing infrastructure as a basis for building a new digital health ecosystem.

Doctor Smart offers three key advantages: the fastest available access to health and wellness advice, a broad spectrum of specialities, and a unique, technologically advanced platform.

The platform’s speed of service is something that every Doctor Smart user will come to appreciate. Our goal is to make it as fast as possible, so that no one needs to wait for over a minute.

The number of health and wellness specialties available also makes Doctor Smart different from competitors who only offer medical advice. Doctor Smart gives you access to vets, nutrition and fitness experts, as well as health and beauty specialists.

The technology behind Doctor Smart is what really makes it special. Firstly, Doctor Smart is the only solution in the market with a treatment verification system. Doctor Smart automatically checks any prescribed medication for relevance, compatibility with a patient’s previous medical records, and for drug interactions. This solution has already been implemented at Medicina, one of the leading multi-specialty medical clinics in Moscow.

Secondly, Doctor Smart has developed a proprietary technology for verifying medical qualifications. It uses the current international professional standards to ensure that Doctor Smart users receive high-quality advice.

Thirdly, Doctor Smart is a blockchain-based solution. Blockchain smart contracts make interaction secure and transparent to all Doctor Smart users, while enabling efficient exchange of medical and financial data between its participants. It’s a friendly, technology-driven ecosystem, aimed at protecting the interests of all participants and giving them true control over the system.

Moreover, Doctor Smart will offer smart contract-based health insurance. The tripartite mechanism – involving patients, health care providers, and insurance companies – will help reduce human error. With insurance policies written in a direct and easy-to-follow manner and secured through blockchain technology, self-executable contracts will facilitate clarity and transparency.

Doctor Smart users will keep and manage their own health history. Their medical records on Doctor Smart will include information from various sources, such as recommendations from different medical specialists and fitness experts, laboratory test results, data collected from wearable wellness devices, heart rate monitors, glucose meters, etc. This information will be made available to health and wellness service providers to ensure their full awareness. Having access to their own health data may also cause patients to form new habits such as monitoring their health more carefully.

4) What makes Doctor Smart ICO different from the others?

The healthcare industry is suffering from cost inefficiency and too much red tape. Currently, healthcare quality and costs are unjustified. Narrow focus on separate problems hinders improvement in quality of life. Patients don’t have true control over and easy access to their own health information. The healthcare industry is slow to adopt new technology. But the revolution has already begun!

A possible scenario is that the transnational corporations win, keeping hold of resources and data. An alternative would be to give consumers control over healthcare. Doctor Smart aims to drive change to empower consumers worldwide! We aspire to help people take control of their health and quality of life! That’s what makes Doctor Smart ICO different from the others.

5) How much do you intend to raise in the DSTT Token Sale and how can we invest?

7) What are your marketing and sales strategies to achieve this projected success?

9) How Safe is Doctor Smart, would you like to talk about your legal and security measures?

Healthcare providers are required to comply with all of the requirements of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, HIPAA – the regulatory framework which creates the rules for handling patients’ personal medical information at medical facilities.

Using blockchain together with other technologies for dynamic data security, Doctor Smart is creating a blockchain-based platform that will comply with all HIPAA’s security requirements. Doctor Smart’s dynamic identification protocol will divide data into three groups with different levels of access permissions depending on the type of the user, time and reason for access, geo-location and business needs. The use of anonymous dynamic identifiers obtained non-mathematically will help Doctor Smart’s blockchain to overcome the so-called mosaic effect and provide opportunities for granular control of personal data access.

To ensure more secure data protection, medical information will be stored apart from the public blockchain.

The use of blockchain technology together with a dynamic identification protocol based on a distributed P2P network will help to ensure a new and higher level of data protection as compared to traditional databases with a centralized method of information storage. This is privacy by design.
