27-Year Old Black Entrepreneur Raises $7.2 Million in Just 3 Days

 

Atlanta-based Patientory, the company behind an advanced healthcare app, has raised $7.2 million in a very successful online Blockchain token sale (not via Kickstarter, as previously reported). The block-chain startup, founded by CEO and Black entrepreneur, 27-year-old Chrissa McFarlane, enables the connecting of digital medical records without compromising privacy.

Crowdfunding is real

Chrisa was able to raise that much funding in just about 3 days by launching an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) that drew 1,728 investors. She saw a real need for an application that would store private medical data in a secure area where it could not be hacked. Not only that, but the app can also store a patient’s entire health history and determine who can have access to it.

Exactly what the healthcare industry needs

Chrissa explains that the app uses what is called blockchain technology where patient information is coordinated through a Blockchain health information exchange. Patientory encrypts medical patient information in hospitals and insurance companies so that the data is distributed in an un-hackable environment.

Chrissa's new company offers a unique solution to connecting digital medical records without compromising privacy, which is one of the biggest issues in healthcare today. According to Huffington Post, Patientory is one of the leading exponents of blockchain in healthcare.at exactly is a Blockchain startup?

 

Blockchain start-ups and projects raise capital by creating their own tokens or digital currencies, and selling them to the public through ICOs. Other projects like Aragon, a management tool that creates software to manage companies, raised $25 million in less than 15 minutes.

Omnitrans Offers New Summer Discount for Youth

(San Bernardino, CA) Local youth can get around town a little cheaper this summer, thanks to a special discounted bus fare on Omnitrans. Riders 18 and under will pay just $1 per trip in June and July.

While Omnitrans offers Youth discounts on its 7-day and 31-day bus passes, there was not a youth discount for single trips until this summer. In comparison, the regular one-way cash rate is $1.75; a 1-day pass is $5.

“Summer is a great time to get out and explore,” said Omnitrans spokesperson Wendy Williams. “We hope the discounted summer youth fare will make it more affordable for youth and families to get to the community pool, the library, the mall or the movies.”

The discount is good on all Omnitrans bus routes serving the San Bernardino Valley including 26 local routes, three freeway express routes, five OmniGo community shuttle routes and the sbX bus rapid transit line in San Bernardino and Loma Linda.

During the traditional school year, Omnitrans averages nearly 40,000 youth trips per month. That drops to about half during the summer months.

Students who appear to be close to age 19 should be prepared to show bus drivers proof of age or a high school ID card to prove they are eligible for the discount.

Personalized routing assistance is available at 800-9-OMNIBUS (800-966-6428) or online at www.omnitrans.org
