Zug, Aug. 27, 2021 — As an open network of supernodes built for decentralized and permissioned medical and pharmaceutical data storage, dHealth will make its debut through an initial DEX offering on the OccamRazer launchpad. Currently supported by leading Swiss pharmaceutical giant Roche and Swiss universities, dHealth’s solution will leverage the Cardano network to add to its stakeholders’ network of supernodes, which operate as access points and network verifiers. 

The existing healthcare industry is plagued by both a lack of transparency and interoperability, resulting in many siloed intermediaries as well as inefficient data access by all stakeholders. To address this, the dHealth supernode network enables peer-to-peer interactions among stakeholders without the need to build out separate digital infrastructure for each user group. 

Eberhard Scheuer, president and founder of dHealth Foundation, said:

“DHealth is focused on developing the most accessible, decentralized and cost-effective network of supernodes to alleviate the information asymmetry and lack of transparency in the existing healthcare industry. Both dHealth and our node operators, such as Roche and University of Zurich, firmly believe that Cardano is among the most promising blockchain protocols developed to date, and the Occam.fi team is perfectly placed to help us tailor our offering for the Cardano blockchain.”

The components and infrastructure of dHealth Network facilitate the application of blockchain technology in healthcare, resulting in faster, cheaper and more transparent infrastructure than traditional centralized solutions.

Elliot Hill, head of communications at Occam.fi, said: 

“The sophistication of dHealth’s supernode network technology and the caliber of their partners speaks for itself. We are immensely proud to bring dHealth to the Cardano ecosystem through their IDO on OccamRazer — yet another existing project with a strong team and vision joins the Occam.fi family. We look forward to working with the dHealth team.”


Other partners and supernode operators supporting dHealth include Novartis, Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, the NEM protocol, the University of Basel, the UZH Blockchain Center and more. The network’s IDO date will be announced soon.
