Our mission is to prevent both internal and external fraud by bringing the power of blockchain and other cutting edge technology to legacy database systems.
Evolving from a winning project at the Distributed Health Blockchain Hackathon in Nashville TN on Oct 6th 2016, SAAVHA took on the task of using a blockchain solution to prevent the Veterans Health Administration Scheduling Misconduct of 2014 from ever occurring again. We quickly developed local and national support. Within three months, our proof of concept evolved from just securing appointment data to becoming an enterprise blockchain database security application. While we value developing for the future, we want to bring you features of cutting edge technology now. Therefore, our aim is to use blockchain and other cutting edge technologies to strengthen existing legacy database systems within Governments, Corporations, Hospitals, and other institutions against external and internal cyber fraud.
