7 reasons to Invest in Grapevine ICO

It is no doubt that technological developments in the healthcare industry improved the quality of our lives. Technology changed patients’ experience, took medical processes to the next level and transformed procedures.

One of such game changers, was the introduction of Electronic Health Records, which replaced paper records and enhanced patient care, improved public health, eased the workflow and lowered healthcare costs. Yet, digitization of medical information and patient-specific details meant that large amounts of data are now stored and can be used to predict epidemics, develop new drugs and treatments, and avoid preventable deaths.

In spite of the significant progress in the healthcare industry, there is one major problem — lack of data interoperability. In other words, all medical data is kept in different formats by hospitals, doctors, pharmacies and even insurance companies. Meaning, that if you go to another country, or even to another doctor in the same city, you or the doctor treating you may not have access to your medical history and data, and this could potentially delay treatment or result in misdiagnosis. On a larger scale, lack in interoperability also poses a major inconvenience for industry research giants, as lack of data means halted progress.

At Grapevine World, we truly believe that we can solve this real-life problem by breaking data barriers and building a new health economy that will transform healthcare globally.

Our supporters have voiced 7 major reasons why they believe that Grapevine will become a success story, and we’d like to share these with you!

1. Grapevine is solving a real-world problem

We’ve gone to the core of the dilemma and created a decentralized borderless ecosystem for the seamless and standardized exchange of healthcare data. What this means is that we are solving the lack of interoperability issue, which is the lack of ability of different technology systems and software applications to communicate and exchange health data. Why is this important? Because practically, lack of interoperability means that if you go to another country, or even to another doctor in the same city, you or the doctor treating you, may not have access to your medical history and data, and this could potentially delay treatment, result in misdiagnosis, or even cause death. On a larger scale, lack of interoperability also poses a major inconvenience for industry research giants, as lack of data means halted progress in research and innovation.

2. Grapevine is not just an idea, it’s a working product

The Grapevine app is in the pre-alpha stage of development and has been piloted by world leading healthcare & tech giants (to be disclosed shortly). To try out our working product, head over to Google Play (and soon the Apple Store) to see how you can access, control and use your data to share it with doctors or specialists for ongoing treatment, or to contribute your anonymized data to clinical trials to improve healthcare worldwide. We’re excited to show you the future of healthcare!

3. There are financial benefits for Grapevine users

Patients get rewarded with Grapevine tokens for sharing their medical records with research institutions and universities. They simply get a push notification on their phone, and can approve or decline for their anonymized data to be used. Further, patience decide whom to share their data with, and for what purpose. GVINE tokens can then be used to purchase products and services like apps, gadgets and medical advice within the Grapevine ecosystem.

4.The project is lead by a 5-star team

Our team members bring over 120 years of cumulative knowledge and experience from the healthcare IT and blockchain sectors. Martin Tiani as the Founder and Project Sponsor, Sasha Borovik as the Blockchain and Crypto Economic Advisor, and Yagub Rahimov on the ICO advisory, amongst other team members have a strong potential to deliver a solid solution, combining health data standards (IHE) and blockchain in a single platform.

5.Backed by globally acclaimed organizations

Grapevine is backed by globally acclaimed organizations, such as Telekom Deutschland and Tiani Spirit. For those of you who might not be familiar, Tiani Spirit is an organization which has over 350 years of experience in healthcare and is an established vendor of an information exchange and interoperability software that is currently used worldwide.

6. Officially recommended by the EU

If we may say so ourselves, we are very proud to have the Grapevine technology officially recommended by the European Union. The Grapevine ICO has also been approved by the Austrian Financial Market Authority. Having the support of these two significant entities brings solidarity to our project, and we are excited to see it translate to other countries and regions worldwide.

7. Secured Crypto Exchange Listings

Last, but not least, Grapevine has multiple confirmed exchange listings once the ICO is over on August 15th, 2018. You will be able to trade GVINE tokens against other cryptos on the COBINHOOD and other exchanges (to be announced) very shortly.
