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

Health and Wellness

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 thee 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.

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.

Surveys via Text Messaging = Increased Truthfulness

Surveys via Text Messaging = Increased Truthfulness

Everyone is texting. With their friends, family, coworkers, and businesses. It’s officially a comfortable communication method, used more than voice calls for the average American mobile user. But did you know it can actually help provide you with more truthful information when conducting surveys?

During elections, we hear about robocalls and the difference between polling companies because they call mobile phones as well as landlines. We consistently think “what about text messaging?” Besides the fact that it is illegal to randomly pick numbers and begin sending them text messages, we think it is a valuable medium for gathering data, especially from more people. Not everyone has a smartphone and even those who do still text.

Well a recent study from the University of Michigan showed not only that text messaging was a great method of gathering data via surveys, but respondents were also actually more truthful in their response. A quote from the researcher “so far it seems that texting may reduce some respondents’ tendency to shade the truth or to present themselves in the best possible light in an interview—even when they know it’s a human interviewer they are communicating with via text.”

This is truly an amazing finding. Text messaging can help offer that additional social buffer of “safety” where another person is concerned and it is a medium that is rooted in personal communications.

If you are looking to offer surveys via text messaging, we can help you design and implement a solution that enables live “text chat” responses with interviewers or automated responses. Let us know what your text messaging survey goals are in a free consultation and we’ll put together a quick quote for you.

Facts about HIPAA Compliance and Text Messaging

 HIPAA Compliance and Text Messaging

HIPAA-Compliance-Text-Messaging-Mosio

In 2011 The Joint Commission reported that 60 percent of all sentinel events were directly related to a breakdown in communication. Furthermore, researchers have sighted communication breakdowns as one of the biggest factors influencing clinical trial outcomes. With that in mind, health care providers and researchers have turned to text messaging to improve communication.

Text messaging provides researchers, health care providers and patients with a direct line of communication, which they can use to transmit vital information essential to improving clinical outcomes. Unfortunately, traditional text messaging is not secure or compliant with the privacy regulations of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA compliant text messaging must follow the four major areas critical to compliance:

Secure data centers – HIPAA requires that all health related data be stored in a secure location.

Encryption – HIPAA requires that all protected health information be encrypted both in transit and at rest.

Recipient authentication – HIPAA requires that any communication containing protected health information be delivered only to the intended recipient.

Audit controls – Any HIPAA compliant system must have the ability to create and record a trial for safety and compliance audits.

The aforementioned HIPAA compliance regulations can prove to be a major road block for any clinician looking to improve communication efficiency with text messaging. Contact Mosio for guidance on how you can use text messaging in your health program or to discuss a HIPAA compliant mobile messaging service using traditional text messaging and the mobile web.

Integrating Text Messaging with Customer Service [INFOGRAPHIC]

Integrating Text Messaging with Customer Service

We present to you a great infographic, titled “Taking it to the Text Level” – We agree with literally everything on this infographic and the wonderful stats in it, created by Demandforce and Column Five. Most consumers these days are texting with friends, family and work. More companies and organizations are realizing that it’s not a passing fad, but a great way to communicate quickly, both ways, with their customers, members and employees. There are various ways to integrate text messaging with your customer service channels. We advise you to discuss your options with companies who specialize in text messaging software and solutions to provide you with the best options for your budget and use cases.

Businesses taking advantage of text messaging benefit from cost savings in operations, more access to customers on the go and can take advantage of many mobile users quick access to the mobile web for promotions, coupons and additional information to help customers become fans.

Some of the key takeaways from the infographic:

  • 73% of American mobile phone owners are regular texters.
  • 66% suffer from “nomophobia”, being without your cell phone.
  • 33% of mobile phone users prefer a text message over a voice call.

Free Text Messaging Character Counter from Mosio

Free Text Messaging Character Counter

Our software has a built-in character counter for setting up text message alerts and reminders as well as when our clients are responding to their customers, but we often have people asking about the best way to figure out how much information can be sent in a text, so we built and have hosted this text messaging character counter and you’re free to use it as well. Feel free to bookmark it or save it somewhere in case you need it in the future.

Internally we have an 800+ term “textspeak” translator that has an SMS acronym dictionary of nearly every possible short phrase texters have come up with. We’re currently speaking with the development team about hosting that outside of our service. If you’re interested in it, contact us, let us know and we’ll pass it along that more folks are looking for it.

Happy texting,

Client Testimonial: Mosio’s Mobile Text Messaging Services for Events and Conferences

We absolutely love when clients are happy with our service. It might sound a bit cliche, but it’s true. We love happy clients because they make our job so much easier. With a few of us as parents or parents-to-be, we’re proud to have the PTA as a client.

Taken from an article entitled PTA: The Power of Parents: “Educators, administrators, academics, parents-even the mass media-all have been awakened to the overwhelming positive effect parent involvement can have on students’ academic performance.”

The PTA is one of the most powerful associations in education and we were honored to be chosen to power the mobile technology portion of their recent national conference.

Below is a testimonial from the client who has since acted as an amazing reference for us as well. Thanks Rebecca!

Just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks and gratitude for engaging our attendees in a new way through Mosio! The alerts, info center texting and polling during our general sessions were a huge hit and we are hoping to continue all three with even greater usage amongst our attendees next year. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support throughout the set-up process. We look forward to the possibility of working with both of you again in the near future.

— Rebecca Burns, Director, Meetings & Conventions, National PTA
