The Swiss start-up healthbank – which is developing an innovative solution to store, manage and exchange health data innovatively and securely – and haako, a Swiss company specialized on secure digital data exchange solutions, are entering a partnership to connect health services apps and the people-owned healthbank data platform in an innovative and secure mechanism.
The digital health ecosystem is growing significantly. However, there are still data silos that need further connectivity and convergence – and most importantly the full control of the people owning their health data. haako and healthbank will now change this obstacle together.
Health apps developed by haako use datalinker.io, a secure platform for moving data between systems, to share data collected on haako apps with doctors or care givers for remote monitoring of your health status.
Healthbank and haako now enter a partnership to allow users to upload their collected data over datalinker.io to healthbank for a secure long-term storage, giving the users the chance not only to share their data with health care professionals, family and friends, but also to build their very own health history as well as to take part in research projects by making their data available to research institutions.
haako and healthbank will combine their activities bringing innovative solutions to patients and promoting digitalization in the healthcare sector. Thanks to this partnership, data silos can be broken up, linked – and user’s data can ultimately be securely stored for further use. During this process and beyond, data will – following healthbank’s ethos – always remain in complete ownership of the user.
haako is the software company behind datalinker.io, the private and secure platform for building data-driven services in healthcare. It combines data collection, data processing, service management and a marketplace over which developers and companies can link data to services and other platforms and applications. The datalinker API provides a common interface for communicating between all connected services. Ready-to-use software kits for iOS and Android make it easy to integrate datalinker into apps. www.haako.io / www.datalinker.io
healthbank is the world’s first people-owned health data transaction platform connecting data sources from all facets of the healthcare ecosystem and rewarding participants for sharing their data for research purposes. Based in Switzerland, healthbank leverages Swiss neutrality, trust and data privacy to enable users, researchers and organizations with large data sets to unlock the value of health and medical data on its independent, global transaction platform. www.healthbank.coop
