What made you want to join the team at BurstIQ?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

I’ve always enjoyed building teams and solving the unsolvable issues. I helped found BurstIQ for just that; solving some of healthcare’s biggest issues.

What is unique about the BurstIQ culture?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

Check your ego and title at the door. Everyone is treated like an owner and has equal input in moving the company forward.

What are the biggest opportunities for blockchain in healthcare?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

The biggest opportunity is combining blockchain with other proven technologies. Blockchain really helps fill in a missing gap.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — What is the biggest barrier behind the industry’s adoption of blockchain, how does BurstIQ address that challenge?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — \

Currently technologies are not really designed for big data. Presently, the blockchain is a transparent and open platform. In the case of Bitcoin transactions, for example, any one can view the details of the exchange- from the amount to the fund transfer. It does not provide any encryption or security to the healthcare data, and this is where BurstIQ comes in. Our technology has combined highly secure and fast healthcare data with blockchain technology.

How does BurstIQ safeguard personal data?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

BurstIQ has created a platform that combines blockchain technology with encryption, data sharding, and big data that provides a secure, yet fast platform for healthcare data.

What do you want people to say about BurstIQ in 10 years?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

I remember BurstIQ when they were just a little startup with great ideas. Now they have become the Facebook for healthcare data.

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

What is the biggest barrier to realizing BurstIQ’s vision, and how is BurstIQ responding to that challenge?

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

The biggest barrier is that the healthcare sector is 10–20 years behind the general technology sector. We hope that with BurstIQ’s simple and secure platform, businesses and facilities are able to drive adoption of this great technology.
