The idea for Kinect was inspired by the desire to unite the blockchain's capacity to deliver trusted transactions (at the expense of corruption) and patient / stakeholder incentives to assist the developing world with improved health and well-being. Blockchain's innate capacity for security and privacy are a natural fit for the entire healthcare supply chain. Kinect evaluated many blockchain platforms, choosing Unify Earth for its unparalleled technological leadership, industry-defining architecture, and commitment to advancing the United Nations' SDGs.
Kinect was founded in 2016 after developing a prototype cloud-based EHR application in close coordination with donor organizations. 2017 saw continued product development along with in-country field testing and demonstration of early concept schematics in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan, DRC and Cameroon. Cameroon hosted our first in-field testing.
