The Concept of Personal Identity Management
An increasing amount of data has been created over the past decade (we now generate about 2.5 quintillion bytes per day!), and Americans have developed a growing concern regarding:
- What data is being collected
- Who is collecting it
- How it’s being used
- And if there is something of value being provided in return
The concern is amplified by the various security breaches that have recently left a large number of people as the victims of identity and personal data theft.
Enter Personal Identity Management, the concept of individuals using technology products to take control over their data so they can choose how to manage, use, and share it with other individuals or organizations. Imagine yourself in full control of your personal data. Whether you are browsing the web or visiting the doctor, all your information will be stored in one place; a secure, centralized repository. This empowering technology has arrived, and one of the most impactful realms for its application is the realm of healthcare.
The Future of Identity Management in Health Care
A survey shows around 86% of the mistakes in healthcare are administrative, and around 30% of patient charts go missing every year. Further, a 2013 study from the Journal of Patient Safety estimated that over 400,000 premature deaths occur each year due to preventable harm that is caused to patients in hospitals. Beyond that, 10 to 20 times that amount of patients are seriously harmed, but not lethally, in hospitals due to the same type of errors. The solution? The study says, “Fully engaging patients and their advocates during hospital care.”CAN TECHNOLOGY HELP PATIENTS GET BETTER CARE?Imagine your health in your pocket; all your records, fitness details, and contacts on one single platform. A world without hundreds of pieces of paper where you can:
- View your blood pressure or find out if you’re allergic to a certain food
- Receive a seamless referral to a specialist doctor
- Review all your reports from the lab right in your phone
- Quickly grant a doctor access to your records and speed up the diagnosis and treatment process
- Never worry about lost records, filling out forms, or digging through cabinets
You can own and control your medical records and information, so you don’t have to rely on your care provider. Sound like a lot of pressure?What if an intelligent AI was there to help? One that could keep constant track of your health, and diagnose problems before they occur? And what if they could send messages recommending behavior changes that will improve your health? How much could you save on medical costs, doctor visits, and sick days?With the technology available today, we have built an entire ecosystem just for health management. You can access it from wherever you are and rest assured knowing your data is only shared with your permission.
Concerns About Security and Human Connection
[caption id="attachment_120" align="alignnone" width="1024"]
Key Players[/caption]With big-time players like Centrify, Okta, One login, and others already in the market trying to revolutionize healthcare with their IDaaS solutions, there are already a few areas of concern. Beyond all the technology, people still demand the human connection with their doctors or physicians. Further, they also fear their information won’t be safe, and for good reason. The black market for medical identity theft is more valuable than any other black market in the US. 91% of healthcare institutions have cloud-based services, yet 47% are not confident about the security of the data. Additionally, 40% of US healthcare organizations do not have two-factor authentication implemented. This is a problem.A new solution is needed!
A New Health Management Platform

One with AI support that is there when you need it to do things for you or to share its knowledge from third-party sources. Moreover, one where all the data you provide is safe with dual encryption, which ONLY you can open and share.USER-FRIENDLY DASHBOARD AND SIMPLE SHARING FUNCTIONALITYThis new platform will keep all of your details on one easy-to-manage page, like a social profile, but containing your health details.

A Light at the End of the Tunnel
In many ways, the trust of the people has been broken. Our data has been used in many ways without our knowing consent and has become vulnerable to attacks. However, there is a silver lining. By retaking control of your data, ensuring it is secure, and only sharing it with third-parties that offer you direct value, there is great progress to be made. In healthcare, particularly, there is massive room for growth. An opportunity to keep closer tabs on your wellness with all your information in one place, the help of an AI, and one-touch access to a provider near you. Love what you see?
