Mosio Announces the Launch of Clinicoin, the Largest Cryptocurrency-based Health and Wellness Community in the World

SEATTLE — (Business Wire) — Mosio, Inc., the company providing two-way mobile messaging solutions for healthcare and clinical research, announces today the launch of Clinicoin, a “superapp” platform for healthcare. Clinicoin is the first blockchain platform focused on building a global health and wellness community. The platform gives users the necessary mobile tools to help them manage their lives and lead healthy lifestyles, and incentivizes these behaviors to make exercise and mindfulness activities fun.

Clinicoin rewards users with its in-app cryptocurrency, CLIN tokens, for engaging in healthy activities via an open source platform. Leveraged by a blockchain-based ecosystem, the platform is designed to connect people, developers and providers, worldwide, improving global health, wellness and research.

Clinicoin offers its users a variety of features including:

  • Rewards Engine — enables the distribution of Clinicoin (CLIN) tokens among community members. They can be used for completing healthy tasks, incentivizing adherence or participating in medical research.
  • Proof of Engagement (PoE) — the confirmation of healthy activities connected to the Clinicoin platform by two different types of Validators (health app developers and activity leaders). Similar to mining other cryptocurrencies, users earn CLIN tokens for participating in healthy activities and Validators earn tokens for confirming those behaviors.
  • Secure Messaging — uses end-to-end encryption, enabling users to interact securely with each other, organizations, researchers and digital tools, keeping them on track with their health and wellness goals in compliance with HIPAA privacy and security guidelines.
  • Health and Wellness Marketplace — where Clinicoin members spend their CLIN tokens for access to tools, content, products and services. The marketplace will be powered by Mosio and soon move to a decentralized model.
  • Educational tools — Users can access digital tools and explore resources and updates about fitness and nutrition to educate themselves with the latest information about staying healthy.

The two other Clinicoin community member types are Developers (programmers, software engineers) and Providers (healthcare organizations, researchers, practitioners). Developers can create, deploy and monetize their software applications connected to the Clinicoin platform. Providers benefit from an easy and secure way to interact with users and gather data through surveys. Leveraging ten years as a mobile messaging solutions provider, Mosio uses its platform to solve patient engagement problems for healthcare organizations, clinical researchers and software companies.

The Clinicoin token sale will open at 9am PST on February 21, 2018 (5pm GMT, Feb 21, 2018) and close at 6pm PDT on March 20, 2018 (1am GMT, March 21, 2018). Of the 3 billion CLIN tokens minted, 600 million will be reserved in the community rewards pool, rewarding users and validators for taking part in and confirming healthy activities. Everyone contributing in the token discount sale will have access to all early buying bonus discounts, with no pre-sales, whitelists or minimums. Once the hard cap is met, an additional 200 million CLIN tokens will be unlocked during the sale, with proceeds donated to global children’s health charities.

About Clinicoin
Clinicoin is a blockchain platform that pays users to be healthy while connecting them with the people who help keep them that way. Building the world’s largest cryptocurrency-based health and wellness community on the planet, the platform is designed to connect users, developers and providers, worldwide, improving global health, wellness and research.

HEALTH CHAT APP LAUNCHES BLOCKCHAIN POWERED HEALTH PLATFORM: On Thursday, Mosio, a health messaging app that connects patients and doctors, launched Clinicoin, a blockchain-powered platform aimed at encouraging users to engage in healthy behavior. Users are rewarded with Clinicoin’s in-app cryptocurrency, called CLIN tokens, for completing healthy tasks, adhering to their medication regimen, or participating in clinical research. CLIN can then be used to make in-app purchases for things like active-wear, water bottles, and additional services, such as a chatbot that reminds users to take their medication.

“The blockchain offers a way for providers, practitioners, and researchers to confirm compliance and incentivize patients to be more involved in the healthcare process, improving engagement while reducing the costs associated with non-adherence.”

This gamification of consumer-driven healthcare could help to increase adherence to behaviors that positively affect patient health. More so, the use of blockchain technology — a digital ledger — could help improve transparency and drive collaborations within the healthcare industry. “The blockchain offers a way for providers, practitioners, and researchers to confirm compliance and incentivize patients to be more involved in the healthcare process, improving engagement while reducing the costs associated with non-adherence,” Mosio CEO Noel Chandler told Business Insider Intelligence. Read the original post here.

3 Problems Text to Screen Software Will Solve

What does your ideal conference, seminar or meeting look like? You have put in the time and money to get the word out. The brochures look beautiful. All of the presenters are lined up and ready to go. You gaze out into the sea of faces, and delight in there not being an empty seat in the house.

Then, it happens: During the question and answer session, someone knocks the microphone doesn’t work or it is making a popping sound. The sound does not amplify anymore, and people in the audience cannot hear the questions, much less the answers. With twenty-three people still in line to get their concerns addressed and two-hundred people in the conference hall getting irritated and restless, you feel the anxiety starting to build as all of your best-laid plans start to fall to the wayside.

As you slowly slink into the background and make a mental note to update your resume, someone comments that you should have used text to screen software, and you just cringe.

Three Problems Text to Screen Software Will Solve

1 – No Microphones in the Audience
An audio problem during a presentation can unravel weeks of planning in a split second. When you implement text to screen capabilities, you do not have to worry about questions not being heard; they will be displayed on the screen for all to see. The only voice projecting is that of the speaker on the stage.

There is also no need for presenters to walk around the crowd chasing after raised hands, nor do people have to wade through the aisles to make it to microphone stands strategically placed around the auditorium. Furthermore, no one likes standing up to wait in line in front of hundreds of people. So, don’t make them!

2 – Apprehension and Fear
Glossophobia is the fear of public speaking. A whopping 75 percent of people suffer some anxiety or downright terror at the thought of getting up in front of a crowd and talking. To make matters worse, this number does not include those who suffer social anxiety or other generalized anxiety disorders. This statistic is of concern to anyone who genuinely wants to hear their audience, because there are so many unasked questions left due to people being afraid to ask them.

By allowing people to ask questions and address their concerns through text messaging, you are allowing anonymity and setting their fears at ease.

3 – Inappropriate Questions
We can all agree, every question is not a good question. There will always be that one person who just cannot wait to get to the microphone, sometimes it’s hard to tell if they have a question or just want to talk. Time is wasted and the audience annoyed. They can be disruptive at best, and at worst can turn a promising gathering into an awkward tangent. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could moderate the questions before they get asked?

You can! With text to screen software, your staff can vet questions as they come in, removing those that are inapplicable to the discussion.

Clinical Trial Recruitment Success Via Text Messaging

Recruitment: the perpetually challenging aspect of clinical trials.

As one of the most important parts of running a clinical trial (no patients, no trial, right?), recruitment is a large focus for those involved in clinical research.  However, even with numerous proposed strategies for effective recruitment, it seems as though it is still a major challenge that cannot be overcome.

What is the major problem with recruitment?

It takes time. A lot of time. A patient population for a study has to be created, contacted, and convinced that the clinical trial is worthwhile. While some sites have a database listing past trial patients, sometimes it is not large enough to create a significant patient population for a new study. Then, call centers are used, referrals occur, and advertising takes place, adding more time to the recruitment process.

What is wrong with recruitment taking a lot of time?

There is nothing innately wrong with recruitment taking time. In any scenario, it is a lengthy process. However, to meet screening and randomization deadlines, a quicker recruitment period is helpful.

Additionally, as reported by Nariman A. Nasser, Director of the UCSF Participant Recruitment Service, almost 2/3 of potential patients are lost to follow-up because they do not hear back about their study eligibility quickly enough. This can happen when sites focus on making all of the recruitment calls first before making any follow-up calls, when pre-screening or screening appointments aren’t scheduled in a timely fashion, or when there are not enough staff at a site to effectively recruit while performing other job responsibilities.

What is the solution?

The solution lies in the back pocket of future patients: the mobile phone. Text messaging has proven itself as an effective means of communication across age groups, genders, ethnicities, locations, religions, and more. It works for everyone.

Whether or not these future patients have smart phones, text messaging is a possible means of communication. Furthermore, Nasser also reports that 5.5 billion people worldwide are mobile subscribers; in the U.S., this is 91% of the population. Read: 91% of the population can be reached via text message for clinical trial recruitment!

Text messaging is fast – and significantly faster than the traditional recruitment phone call. Texting makes it possible to reach a larger number of potential patients by text and perform immediate follow-up with less staff. Screening visits can be scheduled and eligibility questions can be answered via text. Really, text messaging can aid in all aspects of recruitment! If you are looking for a recruitment strategy that has proven positive results, consider texting; you never know who you might be able to reach.

5 reasons text messaging is a better way to communicate with users than anything you’re using now

5 reasons text messaging is a better way to communicate with users than anything you’re using now

There are many ways to communicate with those around you, but if you’re running a organization that relies on quick interaction with you and your users, a more reliable, faster method may be needed on mobile devices. There are a few options to take when deciding what form of communication you’d like to use, text messaging is perfect for any sized organization, here are 5 reasons why:

1) Quick Response Times
Did you know that 90% of text messages are read within 10 minutes? And if you send a message that falls into that 10%, you’ll be happy to know that on average, people will look at their phones 150 times a day. Text messages to be replied to in real-time or from auto-responders and they’re cost effective. Because of these reasons, difference between the response time of emails or phone calls and text messages is phenomenal.

2) Multiple Streamlined Conversations at Once
Each person in your organization has the ability to answer just one phone call at once. Depending on the size of your organization, and the amount of customer interaction you’ll get, this may not be viable for you. With two-way text messaging, each staffer can engage in multiple text conversations at once, and they’ll be able to reply to new conversations while the first users take time to reply back.

3) Text Messages Keep Users in the Loop
While social media can be a great way to convey messages to your followers, you may not be reaching all of your users among all of the social noise. By texting instead, you’ll be able to send out messages about updates for your organization, new services, and any information you think could be useful to your users and ensure they’ll read it. With certain types of text messaging software, users are able to reply back to you and start a private conversation to get any questions they may want answered.

4) Make Things Easier for Your Users and Staff
Communication through phone calls can be time consuming, costly and an inefficient way to share electronic data. Users have to write down any information they need, and in the heat of the moment they could easily get information wrong, ask for it to be repeated and grow frustrated. Phone calls have their place, but in many communications all that is required is short, quick information, making text messaging the perfect medium to reach those on-the-move.

5) Provide Great Service and Support
No matter what service you provide, good communication with users is incredibly important. Great service will determine whether users feel comfortable to come back to you again, and this can be difficult to achieve with phone calls or email. If you have multiple users trying to access your line, waiting times may turn users around, something that can be easily fixed with text messaging. Email can be used to reply quickly to users, but without having an obvious notification, users may not notice they have a reply to the email they’ve sent and the reply times between you and your customer could be hours or even days. With text messaging, you’ll be able to provide a much better experience for your users and hopefully it’ll be one they would be happy to come back to.

There are many ways to communicate with your users, but when it comes to reaching them everywhere in the quickest amount of time, nothing beats text messaging. If you host events, conferences or meetings, text messaging is a great way to engage your attendees and increase audience participation.

Text Messaging News: Beginning today, just text for train ticket, Aid Workers Turn to Text Messaging to Improve Food Aid Delivery to Refugees in the Western Sahara, Text Messaging Remains Vital to Businesses: Survey

Text messaging is always something many believe to be a private matter, and with a new system put in place by Watsonville police, crime-stoppers have managed to take advantage of that line of privacy. Text messages will go through a third party system and then arrive to any police officers on patrol. This new line can be quickly used to give tips to police about new crime they may miss out on, or just to notify the police that something isn’t quite right. We believe that thanks to the high speed nature of texting, this could become a very handy tool.

We all need to call the cab from time to time, but this article is the first to make us realize that there really isn’t any other form of public transport that offers this quick ‘order of service.’ A business in India hopes to change this by allowing train passengers to book for tickets before the train’s arrival. It’s easy to imagine that this could make travel by train a whole lot smoother and more convenient for both those working for the train and the passengers. We really hope we see a similar service being adopted worldwide.

California goes mobile to educate farm workers on pesticide safety

A system in California has been put in place to help farmers ensure they are safely tending to their crops by providing educational videos readily available on smartphones to teach them about the dangers of mistreating pesticide and the plants they are growing. This system first started by offering farmers with text messages to help them do farming the right way, but this new video approach will help those who prefer to watch instead of read, and is also available in multiple languages to help with farmers who do not speak decent English.

mHealth News: Us smartphone users eager for more mobile health technology: poll, Canadian Hospital Launches Mobile Health App for Veterans with OSIs, Carolinas HealthCare adds mobile app for employees

A new poll finds that the demand for mobile health technology in the US outpaces the supply.

Us smartphone users eager for more mobile health technology: poll

You may think that mhealth is a tech fad that will soon become a dying trend, but many people think that there is a lot of potential lying within mobile health technologies. In fact, the majority of Americans quizzed in a poll are extremely eager to be able to use their smartphones and smart devices to keep track of their own health. We certainly think mhealth could help improve our general well being and keep us as fit and healthy as we all aspire to be and it should help build bridges between general help from doctors and safe self-medication.

Social Media, Texting Best Ways to Talk to Young People About Mental Illness

Mental health is an issue that in our opinion needs to be discussed with young people more often so that they understand why they may be feeling a certain way when growing up and why they should be considerate of others that may be feeling a certain way as well. It is not often easy to teach young people about certain topics when their minds are often elsewhere, but it seems the best way to communicate about topics such as mental health is  through what young people know best- texting and social media platforms.

mHealth News: Mobile phone health schemes ‘could save Europe €200 billion’, EHRs could use an infusion of mobile technology, Canadians eager for more virtual, mobile healthcare solutions

Apps like Bant (shown above), a free app under development by the University Health Network in Toronto, allow Type 1 diabetes patients monitor their blood sugar levels to help manage their condition.

Mobile phone health schemes ‘could save Europe €200 billion’

Not only can mhealth be convenient for both patients and doctors, but it could also prove to be very cost worthy too. This article by the Telegraph states that mobile phone health schemes could save Europe 200 billion euros. The savings are for many reasons but one of the major contributors is because of the ability to shorten the amount of doctors needed within the workplace by allowing patients to keep track of their own health and communicate with doctors outside of medical facilities. This is especially important for the elderly that previously would need to make multiple trips to the doctors to keep an eye on their health.

Bullying is never a nice thing to experience, and many helplines out there are available to help those in need of help. A new service will allow children to quietly report to school officials if they are being bullied or if they’ve witnessed bullying themselves through the use of their own cell phones. Kids will be able to text a number for free to alert teachers about any bullying occurring. We think this is a great step to take as children at school can often feel pressured and too scared to make contact with an adult in person.

Kalamazoo-area smart phone users warned of tornado threat, whether or not they asked to be

Whilst technology is growing to better predict upcoming natural disasters, for many people there’s often not a warning before something actually happens. One solution to this problem is to send out a message to everybody in the area as soon as a natural disaster, such as a tornado, is predicted to hit. That is what happened to an area in America as locals were surprised to find a message received on their smartphones warning them of an upcoming tornado and to seek shelter. Seeing as smartphones are on our personal selves so often, it makes for a perfect use for sending out emergency warnings.

However, instead of chatting with friends or texting home to ask what’s for dinner, pilots are communicating with each other to help them learn of any unpredicted change in flight paths to ensure there aren’t any collisions. This is a bit strange when the opposite happens on the road back down on Earth.
