1) The Main Focus Of Bowhead Health Today
Rhea and her team have very ambitious goals in mind. Eventually they are planning to revolutionize the personal health & wellness industry at many fronts. But for now, they are taking one step at a time.
Currently Bowhead Health acts as a platform through which you can fill out health & medical surveys, track your daily healthy habits and order clinical lab tests. All your personal data is then stored in one secure place that is the Bowhead Health platform. So why is it more secure than other platforms that are linked to specific medical companies? Because Bowhead Health uses Blockchain technology to protect your data. All information that is uploaded to the Bowhead Health platform is owned and managed by you and no one else.

2) The Anonymous Healthcare Tokens
Cryptocurrencies have been all over the place lately. But one place where we probably wouldn't have expected to see a digital currency is the health & wellness industry. Until the born of Bowhead Health of course. Another very interesting innovation that Rhea and her team have launched in their ecosystem is the 'Anonymous Health Token'. With the use of this cryptocurrency, they are introducing a reward system where users get rewarded for building out their own health records.
