Duality® is a decentralized application development platform with the potential to change how health systems are designed, built, and interact with one another.
At its core, Duality® creates a data infrastructure and interoperability framework to help support the foundation of information exchange across all health sector boundaries including physical infrastructure (networks), services, and applications.
Duality's goal is to simplify the barriers of healthcare innovation by developing an intuitive data management platform that's highly secure, globally scalable, and provides developers with new and sustainable business models for their applications.
Based on global health data standards including HIPAA, HITECH, and GDPR.
Hybrid public/private blockchain infrastructure to manage private data.
Built with emerging industry standards including CMS-9115-F, SMART on FHIR, and OAuth 2.
Decentralized computing creates a network with always on availability and without a single point of failure.
Blockchain technology offers the healthcare industry a decentralized trust layer that removes human error and increases the security, privacy, and interoperability of health data. Grounded in math and cryptography, blockchain creates a quantifiable approach to data privacy that eliminates numerous barriers preventing healthcare innovation.
Duality has integrated several key technologies and healthcare specific APIs including AI-powered biometric identity authentication, hashed FHIR profiles, machine learning data matching algorithms, smart contracts, decentralized computing, and an industry first peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing protocol using WebRTC initiated by blockchain signaling. When combined, these technologies can be used to support global health data interoperability without compromising privacy or security.
Duality includes both a public permissionless and private permissioned blockchain infrastructure for deploying and running decentralized applications.
The Dynamic (DYN) public blockchain functions as an open, highly redundant and available API framework used to audit, verify, and request access to private sidechains. Proof-of-work consensus algorithms are used to reach agreement on transactions and maintain trust between nodes rather than a central authority driving change and administration.
Duality's data storage and management software is supported by the blockchains of Dynamic and Sequence. Our blockchains store and verify data automatically via a secure, decentralized, and shared ledger.
A special two-layered approach to securing the network utilizes collateralized full-nodes called Dynodes that dedicates computing power to the Dynamic blockchain.
Duality's distributed hash table stores keys with unique identifiers, mapped to specific data, and distributed across the Dynodes. Allowing the DHT to scale and handle continual connections, departures, and failures
Very Good Privacy (VGP) is an end-to-end group cryptosystem library that provides an encryption layer for enhanced privacy and security.
