How Blue United is Disrupting Healthcare Through Blockchain Technology

Blue United (Blue) is merging the worlds of healthcare and blockchain technology by creating a community that leverages smart contracts to authenticate and incentivize the healthy choices of its members. Launched as a partnership between health executives and blockchain technologists in 2018, Blue seeks to transform medical delivery on a global scale by redefining the cost-benefit relationship between healthcare and healthy living.

Through the activation of the Proof of Action algorithm, Blue members are rewarded on a daily basis for engaging in healthy activities and for sharing the biometric data those activities produce. From taking a 5-minute walk, to refilling a prescription, to getting a good night’s sleep, Blue members are rewarded for making healthy choices. These digital rewards come in the form of BLUE, which is used as a medium of exchange and is native to the Blue Ecosystem. Members’ subscription costs can be offset, or even completely paid for, through their BLUE rewards, making healthy living the only prerequisite for excellent healthcare. The Blue Ecosystem is always secure, always encrypted, always anonymous, and always rewarded—thanks to blockchain technology.

Blue plans to partner with many existing health and wellness companies by effectively integrating them into the Blue Ecosystem, which will provide them a novel incentivization tool to increase participation in healthy living. In its first phase of this plan, Blue publicly launched a telehealth and prescription discount card service at the end of last year. In 2022, Blue plans to integrate physical and mental fitness solutions as well, hoping to create a fully holistic health platform.

Blue envisions a world where every individual is empowered to take greater control of their health. A world where people won’t look for institutions to keep them healthy and strong, but will only look inside themselves. This is a world that is finally possible, thanks to the blockchain and a mission to change healthcare forever.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
