Creating trust in health information on social networks
Trust is essential to our society, and as humans, we are wired to trust one another. The Covid-19 pandemic led not only to an unprecedented impact on our health & society but also to the spread of health misinformation that developed into a global public health threat with real-life consequences.
The WHO stresses that health-related misinformation and distrust can be a particularly toxic mix that causes people to reject clinically proven health interventions such as vaccines, disregard health guidance, or try out unproven and dangerous therapies.
TRUSTMEDICOS (www.trustmedicos.com) aims to create trust in health information, in particular on social networks, by tackling shared misinformation with a blockchain-based trust and reputation model.
Trust is one of the most important values in health and what drives our team and company. Our team has strong experience in health tech, data analysis and how large platforms assess user-generated content.
