Many individuals are interested in learning more about their lifestyle, health and treatable disease susceptibility, but don’t have access to that information easily. Companies often use and share personal data however they choose, without the individual being able to control who has access to that data and for what purpose, never mind the fact that they often sell personal data without asking the individual. Meanwhile consumers want to keep their personal information private and safe, and participate in the commercialization of their data.
Through the OmiX platform, individuals will order a sequencing kit, in order to provide a sample of DNA for analysis. They then have access to an in-depth report about their lifestyle and health, based on their DNA.
The OmiX platform uses blockchain technology which helps keep identities and data private. This security will give consumers greater confidence to upload and share their private data in a secure and trusted way.
Within the OmiX platform, the individual always owns their data, can choose who they share it with and for what purpose. The individual is the the only one who can grant access to view or use their data.
Each user is rewarded with OMX tokens for uploading and sharing their data on the OmiX platform. OMX tokens can be used for products and services within the OmiX platform to help with any health issues.
Healthcare and pharmaceutical companies typically do not share and collaborate; they provide individual services that do not interact with each other. As drug development and healthcare costs rapidly rise, pharmaceutical companies need more data in order to fuel their R&D efforts. In the meantime, healthcare data is also regularly compromised through hacks and data breaches.
The OmiX platform will provide an open marketplace for developers and healthcare providers to add and use any apps and services.
Shivom will help enable access to large amounts of diverse data from all over the world with the owners permission, stored and shared in a secure manner.
The OmiX platform is powered by the blockchain, which means there is no single point of entry. All data will be private and secure.
The OmiX platform will eliminate the middlemen that often increase healthcare costs all over the world, making it difficult to move forward.
It is difficult for research organisations to get access to patients and healthcare data from diverse populations and developing economies, which are needed to develop better treatments. It is also difficult to accurately recruit the right patient populations into trials for complex and rare diseases. Currently, healthcare datasets are siloed and largely inaccessible to those who can generate the greatest value from them.
Shivom has a global reach and is conducting pilot work in developing economies, increasing diversity in genomic datasets, and enabling a worldwide community of users, patients, and organisations.
Through the OmiX platform, access to more data will help accelerate the understanding of complex and rare diseases and help facilitate successful drug R&D.
Shivom will help enable access to diverse data sets from all over the world, helping reduce overall costs and stimulate R&D programs that can benefit diverse patient populations around the world.
Shivom is increasing diversity in DNA data from our communities around the world, which will lead to better biomarkers of disease and more effective drugs for a wider range of patients.
Many individuals around the world cannot access or afford healthcare services. Simultaneously, governments in developed countries often struggle in leading individuals to take ownership of their health, improve their health and maintain this interest throughout their lifetime.
The Shivom platform operates worldwide and prioritises developing economies across the globe, to increase diverse data sets and drive a worldwide community of users, patients and organisations.
The Shivom platform will help provide in depth healthcare reports and information through DNA analysis. A support system is also in place to help guide users in understanding and acting upon their information.
The OmiX platform will incentivise users to become more involved in their healthcare by providing OmiX tokens for uploading and sharing their data, which can be used to access more wellness and healthcare services.
The OmiX platform will contain an open marketplace for all stakeholders including governments to be able to add their apps and services, so that patients can get access to these tools when and where they need.
Non-profit research and patient groups typically have large barriers in accessing funds, technology, patients, data and partners in order to carry out their vision. Many communities have little to no infrastructure for these services, making it challenging for patients to seek healthcare and wellness advice.
Shivom will provide non-profits access to available healthcare data from all over the world with permission from our worldwide community of users, patients and partner organisations.
Through the OmiX platform, non-profit organisations and patient groups will be able to better work with patients to help guide them in lifestyle and treatment decisions.
With the OmiX platform, users will be able to access a multitude of healthcare related apps and services to guide and support them in their healthcare decisions via telemedicine.
The OmiX platform will operate worldwide and has a focus on emerging economies and developing populations with a global community of users, patients and organisations.
