About the Dossia Founders Group
The Dossia Founders Group is a consortium of large employers united in their goal of providing employees, their dependents, retirees and others in their communities with an independent, lifelong health record.
The Dossia Founders Group is funding the Dossia Network, an independent secure, non-profit infrastructure for gathering and securely storing information for lifelong health records.
At the request of employees and other eligible individuals, the Dossia Network gathers health data from multiple sources.
Employee participation as a Dossia Network user is completely voluntary and individuals have complete control over who sees their information.
Once gathered and securely stored in a decentralized database, the health information is continually updated and is available to individuals for life even if they change employers, insurers, or doctors.
The Dossia Founders Group includes Applied Materials, BP America, Inc., Cardinal Health, Inc., Intel Corporation, Pitney Bowes, and Wal-Mart.
The Dossia Network project has been endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Manufacturers Association and the National Consumers League.
The Dossia Founders Group has funded an independent nonprofit organization, Omnimedix Institute of Portland OR, to develop and implement the Dossia Network infrastructure.
The Dossia Founders Group welcomes inquiries from other employers interested in joining the initiative.
