PointNurse is a blockchain-based virtual care network platform for delivering direct primary care and care management services to targeted populations. The platform enables nurse practitioners and supporting team members to conduct direct primary care consults, health assessments, behavior management programs, and care coordination. In support of the platform, we are developing a smart contract based cryptocurrency called Nursecoin. Nursecoin will be used to incentivize community growth, close gaps in care, reward patient behavior and provider performance, and create unprecedented healthcare delivery efficiency.
