Can you describe your product/service?

The easiest way to describe the project is to describe the patient experience.  When you sign up, you are matched to three hand-picked clinicians who make up your personal care team – a family medicine physician, a psychotherapist, and a nutrition & wellness coach

You can have unlimited consultations with them via encrypted messaging and live video.

Our AI bot assistant, Izzy, helps improve your overall health and wellness. 

A percentage of all IZZY tokens are reserved for Izzy Cares, a program that subsidizes the cost of the Izzy Care membership on a sliding scale for those who fall below a certain annual income threshold.

How does this model work?

Izzy Care's model is built around two major themes: (1) reinventing care delivery to put patients at the center and provide better support for clinicians, and (2) combining innovative technologies to improve the experience and reduce cost.

Izzy Care's reinvention of care delivery builds upon two key models: What's known as "Direct Primary Care" and what's known as "Collaborative Care".

A Direct Primary Care Model forgoes third-party insurance by establishing an unimpeded financial relationship between the physician and patient. Think of it as a primary care subscription you pay for unlimited access to your primary care doctor, instead of paying co-pays or making payments toward your deductible for routine check-ups or other general medical needs.  Benefits include reduced out-of-pocket costs; increased access to and more time spent with your doctor; better outcomes for you; and reduced stress, better quality of life, and even better pay for your doctor.

A Collaborative Care Model integrates behavioral health into more typical "medical" settings. Think of this as a psychotherapist, and perhaps even a nutritionist, being a part of the same team as your primary care doctor — each focusing on a different part of your overall health, yet working together to provide you with the best care possible. Benefits include: again, reduced out-of-pocket costs and better outcomes; earlier identification and better management of chronic conditions (diabetes, depression, etc.)

Our membership combines and builds on these two models to produce a unique healthcare delivery system, which we supplement and enhance with innovative technologies like our intelligent assistant, Izzy, to support both you and your care team; blockchain technology and tokenized rewards to incentivize healthy behaviors and allow patients to benefit financially from the cost reduction these healthy behaviors produce; and a custom-built electronic medical record to enable your care team to focus on what's best for your care, not on maximizing the number of tests and procedures a health system can bill for.

What's your current status? Who can sign up?

Mobile clients (Android) & website/sign-up revamp are launching in the coming weeks. We have a network of clinicians based in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We are currently working on streamlining this process a bit more to enable sign-up right through the website. International subscription prices are determined in part using the Purchasing Power Parity (
PPP) coefficient for each respective country.  Using PPP helps us ensure the affordability of the membership, while also ensuring doctors and other clinicians can be properly compensated for their work.

Scaling and Improvements to the Technology

Earning IZZY tokens in exchange for sharing health data – This is a must-have for our members. Opt-in to securely share data with medical researchers on a case-by-case basis, with clear information on how your data will be used and for what purpose. You can also opt to share your data with Izzy Care in the same secure fashion to apply deep learning algorithms and glean both population-level health insights and guide precision medicine efforts.

Improvements to AI – developing and enhancing patient triaging functionality, preventive health functionality

dApp platform – Allowing for other decentralized applications to be built atop Izzy Care platform. Think of it as the first Healthcare App Store – giving entrepreneurs access to a wide number of users to scale and monetize their products/services.    

Global support – regular addition of new languages. Streamlining international membership expansion, bringing new clinicians onto the platform, with membership price and token rewards to the country's Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) Co-efficient to ensure the affordability of Core Membership globally.  Continue partnership discussions with governments towards the goal of streamlining public health expenditure and providing access to the Izzy Care platform at no out-of-pocket cost to the consumer.

Can you describe your token? Supply? Token sale structure?
