About Sovereignty

What does Sovereignty do for me?

Your Sovereignty app sits on an amazing technology platform, The Sovereignty Network, that matches you as a Data Owner (and/or your Caregiver) with knowledge and resources, as well as a new class of worker we call a Data Champion. All of this helps you get and sort your health data, including making it more valuable for you to potentially license it in the future. You can also engage and collaborate with others in the Sovereignty community to help you build the most accurate and comprehensive record of your health available anywhere.

Why does Sovereignty exist?

We want to democratize healthcare data. For All. Globally. There is a fundamental unfairness about the outsize profits extracted by industry in the world today with little or no recompense to the individuals who provide the data in the first place.

In a world still lacking the legal and economic framework required to fairly determine usage rights as well as the distribution of profits from data derived from individuals, Sovereignty helps individuals combine data property rights, data access rights and long-established social norms around exchange of value (including gifting) for the benefit of their personal health, finances and social interactions. At the deepest level, and unlike the web economy of the past 25 years Sovereignty provides an ecosystem that combines Ownership, Access rights and Trade for an individual’s health data.

Sovereignty is designed to redress the imbalance between corporations’ high degree of de facto (residual) data rights and their ability to commercialize that data for their exclusive benefit, in favor of individual private and social preferences to limit access, retain a degree of exclusive ownership, and choose to earn income from allowing access to their health data.

Meet the Team

The Sovereignty team is comprised of leading industry specialists & evangelists from the medical and technical sectors. We are committed to making healthcare data accessible for everyone, and passionate about using technology to improve people’s lives
We're a bunch of good sorts really.
