Healthcare Industry Pain Points
Healthcare systems often implement innovation improperly (EHR) and regulation stifles progress.
Administrative burdens and protocol requirements leave less time for patient care.
Third parties interfere with the doctor-patient relationship and drive up costs.
Special interests gain market share through back door deals and lobbying efforts.
There is confusion about the cost of healthcare and who is paying for what.
Physicians are on the front lines of healthcare delivery. They have little influence on how to run the system, and they feel hopeless. Because of this, many are leaving medicine, further worsening access to care.
As a result of these problems, Physician Autonomy continues to decrease. Additionally, regulation and policies formed over the past century have taken rights from physicians. Although we cannot re-write history, we can implement a new solution to reverse this trend.
Licensing, maintenance of certification, and credentialing processes make it difficult for many physicians to move when they are unhappy. Also, many physicians are in debt, further contributing to the problem.
HPEC provides each physician with a personalized digital file containing their credentials. The file is owned and controlled directly by the individual physician. Because digital credentials are portable, they make it possible for physicians to change their employment quickly.
Physicians communicate among each other mainly via word of mouth. When it’s not face-to-face, we communicate through journal articles, newsletters, and social media groups. These may be monitored or censored, reducing security. Because of this, it is difficult to mobilize the collective physician voice to create a movement for change.
HPEC’s Governance platform is attached to each physician’s self-sovereign digital identity. Blockchain security creates a secure, anonymous governance platform. As a result, physicians can easily organize and make decisions about patient care, policy, and practice.
