關於

區塊鏈與加密貨幣發展如火如荼
近一年來,區塊鏈與加密貨幣在國際上快速發展,台灣也掌握機會,跟著國際趨勢積極投入。為支持區塊鏈與加密貨幣業者推動負責任的創新應用,引導產業正向發展,並防止投機份子,藉機炒作斂財,導致惡幣驅逐良幣,影響創新產業發展,「台灣金融科技協會」和「立法院區塊鏈推動連線」,與一群對台灣區塊鏈產業發展有熱忱的產官學研領袖、相關業者、國際友人,共同於2018年5月22日在立法院一起宣布成立「區塊鏈暨加密貨幣自律組織」。逾百位與會者在成立大會上同聲宣讀了自律宣言,這是大家凝聚共識的開始,期望透過產業自律合作,共同遵循高標準的規範,為還在萌芽階段的台灣區塊鏈與加密貨幣產業,共同努力,創造商機,讓台灣成為全球快速發展中的區塊鏈產業的樞紐。

業界自律凝聚共識,推動政府採行低度監管
區塊鏈是一個新興快速發展的行業,加密貨幣交易價格暴漲暴跌,投機和詐騙也隨之而起,因為許多模式變化太快,尚無監理法規,或處於監管法規的模糊地帶。同時,區塊鏈有著跨國發展的特性,單一政府在其中能管制的力道有限,因此在政府還不知道如何有效監管的時刻,業者更應該自發負責自律,讓政府可以低度管制的方式,創造友善環境,讓這具高成長潛能的創新產業可以蓬勃的發展。

自律合作,共榮共好
自律組織的籌備發起,只是一個開始,接下來將安排一連串的小聚與會議,除了交流外,也邀請區塊鏈愛好者集思廣益,找出交易所運作與加密貨幣發行營運銷售及ICO資訊透明化與保護消費者權益的最佳典範(best practices),以研擬一個具體可行的自律機制,讓這個自律組織的運作步上軌道。台灣金融科技協會將在2018/6/8下午3:30~5:30於台大集思會議中心米開朗基羅廳(台北市羅斯福路四段85號 B1) 舉辦SRO成立後的第一個論壇「區塊鏈與加密貨幣產業發展與自律規範」,由臺灣金融科技協會王可言理事長主持,與談人包括金管會鄭貞茂副主委、自律組織的共同發起人 許毓仁委員、蔡玉玲前政委、AMIS劉世偉執行長、與相關業者一同探討「區塊鏈與加密貨幣自律規範與產業發展」,請您來共襄盛舉。

About

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency’s Development in Full Swing

The development of blockchain and cryptocurrency has been in full swing  worldwide for the past year. Taiwan has also taken the opportunity to follow the international trends. In order to support blockchain and cryptocurrency operators for their responsible innovative applications, to guide the industry development to the right direction, and to avoid speculation that may deter the development of the industry,Taiwan FinTech Association, along with Parliamentary Coalition for Blockchain, experts, scholars, and operators have announced to found Taiwan Crypto Blockchain Self-Regulatory Organization on 2018/5/22 at the Legislative Yuan. More than 100 participants read out a self-regulation declaration at the ceremony that marked the start of consensus, hoping to work together to create business opportunities and make Taiwan the center of the fast-growing global blockchain development.

 

Calling for Low Regulation, Gaining Consensus on Self-regulation

Blockchain is a rising business field that has been developing rapidly. The market values of cryptocurrencies rise and fall sharply that results in speculations and frauds. Since these  patterns are changing so quickly, either there are no regulations yet, or the regulations are not comprehensive enough to monitor trading activities. Besides, going on cross-border is a feature of blockchain; therefore the monitoring strength of a single country is limited. While the government is still figuring out how to effectively monitor the market, operators ought to be regulating themselves in a responsible manner allowing the government to adopt a lower regulation to create a friendly environment for this innovation industry of high growth potential to flourish.

 

Cooperation and Self-regulation for a Win-win Situation

Setting up a self-regulatory organization is merely a start followed by numerous get-togethers and meetings during which blockchain followers will be invited to brainstorm how the exchange works, how cryptocurrencies are published and traded, and how information is kept open to the public in order to protect the rights and interests of consumers, hence setting an example for best practice. A concrete, practical self-regulatory system is hoped to be in place to allow the organization to run smoothly. Taiwan FinTech Association is holding its first forum since the establishment of SRO, featuring “Development and Self-regulation of Blockchain and Crytocurrency” from 3:30 to 5:30 PM, 2018/6/8, at Michelangelo Hall, GIS NTU Convention Center, B1F, No. 85, Sec. 4, Roosevelt Rd., Taipei. The forum will be hosted by Dr. Ko-Yang Wang, president of Taiwan FinTech Association. The panelists include Mr. Cheng-Mount Cheng, vice chairman of the Financial Supervisory Commission, legislator Yu-Jen Hsu, Ms. Yu-Lin Tsai, ex-administrative councilor, Mr. Alex Liu, CEO of AMIS, and other related operators. Please come join us  at the forum.

OR/MS Today, an international journal under INFORMS, disclosed in its No. 21 issue of 2018 the world speech tour topics, including Operations Research and Analytics and their noteworthy applications and innova-tions. iABC’s proposals of utilizing AI and blockchain to promote the fusion and upgrade of new healthcare, new retailing, and new finance was offi-cially covered in the journal.

A recent article from the New York Times cited Taiwan’s National Health Insurance, a single-payer system owned and operated by the govern-ment, as a great example worth noting for the government of America. In 2013, the average yearly medical and healthcare expenditure per person in Taiwan is US$1,166, making up 5.1% of the per capita GDP of the same year. The amount is way lower than that of America at US$9,255 of the same period. In addition, the administrative expenditure of National Health Insurance Administration, Ministry of Health and Welfare consists only of 1.07% of all health care expenditure while its information system is able to provide almost real-time information over health care expenses, utilization rate and public health emergency such as the outbreaks of the flu and the avian flu.

Nevertheless, Taiwan’s medical and healthcare is still faced with a main challenge – fast-growing aging society and accelerating cost for non-contagious diseases. From 1996 to 2013, the GDP of Taiwan has grown about 50% while the average healthcare expenditure per person has nearly doubled. To get to the bottom of the problem, the increase has mainly come from the population over 60 years of age.

In 2011, the elderly ( aged 65 and over ) consisted only 10% of the total population, while their healthcare expenditure made up 34% of all the ex-penditure. It is estimated that the aged population will reach 14%, turning Taiwan into an aged society in merely 20 years. The pace has greatly surpassed that of other developed countries. The aged population is pro-jected to rise up to 20% in 2025, making Taiwan a hyper-aged society.

Taiwan is becoming the fastest aging country in the world. As the popula-tion structures are changing, the overall medical and health care expendi-ture is also growing rapidly. Meanwhile, according to the 2030 Sustaina-ble Development Agenda by the United Nations, non-contagious diseases are considered one of the main challenges to sustainable development, whereas the gradually growing non-contagious diseases consist of 79.3% of the mortality rate in Taiwan. Prevention and control of non-contagious is rather challenging, partly because causes of these diseases are di-verse, and some of them are controversial such as tobacco addiction, al-cohol abuse, and unhealthy diet, all of which can increase the risks of dy-ing of non-contagious diseases, but not any of them can be easily eradi-cated.

Given these challenges, Taiwan has to develop innovative models to look after the aged population and enhance the health of the general public. In order achieve the goal, the intelligent IT system, community clinics, and the elderly care system can be put in place to provide a healthier life for the elderly and community residents. Related retailing and commercial services can also be integrated, along with financial services, to process medical and healthcare related expenses and insurance.

The authors of this article have recently received the support from the project of Global Research & Industry Alliance, GLORIA by MOST to found International AI and Blockchain Consortium, iABC, jointly initiated by Asia University and China Medical University, for the purpose of pro-moting health and medical care. iABC is headed by Dr. Grace Lin, vice president of Asia University, fellow and former board member and VP for the International Activities of INFORMS.

The aims of GLORIA are to prepare enterprises ready for industrial trans-formation and intelligent digital economy as well as to promote collabora-tion between universities and corporations, and to commercialize the techniques developed by academic researchers. At iABC, there are scholars and experts from industries and institutes of different fields all over the world, dedicating to putting rising technology into the real world of medical and health care. Especially Taichung-based Asia University and China Medical University, with their complete medical system of 14 subsidiary hospitals, are acting as research hub, which is human-centered, and dedicates to preventive medical and health care and relat-ed new retailing and fintech. The rising technologies being applied involve big data analysis, operations research, AI, blockchain, cloud computing, IoT and so on.

iABC’s key features:

  1. Universities, enterprises, research labs, and international institutes are put together to form a united research team that has substantial cross-field experience over business management, advanced technology, solu-tion integration, and transformation consulting which are helpful in bol-stering the innovation and R&D of new health, new retailing, and new fi-nancial service.
  2. The united system of Asia University and China Medical University is geared to engage the research centers within the schools in putting rising technology together with commercial service, to accomplish consistent buildup and inheritance over talent development. The research centers involved are Big Data Research Center, FinTech and Blockchain Re-search Center, and 3D Printing Research Institute.
  3. iABC has set up liaison centers and labs in Taipei, and Taichung for the demonstration of innovative technology, and the integrated new health, new retailing, and new financial solutions to connect with the industry, and small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs) in central and northern Taiwan so as to encourage them to develop innovation and partnership. The ecolog-ical model will customize an opportunity to cross fields and brands for SMEs.

Solutions: Integration of Health, Retailing, and FinTech

Technology progress has led to innovative business models, which in turn has made an impact on the healthcare, retailing, and finance industries. Holistic Healthcare, stressing the importance of predictive, prevention, personalized, and participatory (4P Medicine), will become the focal point of the development of healthcare management. The trend is demonstrat-ed in a survey by Frost & Sullivan, a consulting firm involved in market re-search and analysis. According to the survey, in 2007 70% of the ex-penditure was for treatment, as for the rest 30%, 15% was for diagnosis, 10% for monitoring, and 5% for prevention; while in 2012, the expenditure for treatment fell to 60%, the others rose to 19% for diagnosis, 12% for monitoring, and 9% for prevention.

The medical and healthcare expenditure for treatment is expected to drop significantly to 35%, while percentages are predicted to mount to 27% for diagnosis, 16% for monitoring, and 22% for prevention, which indicates that people are willing to pay more attention to their health, and institu-tions of medical and healthcare are re-allocating resources from treat-ment to prevention and healthcare. In order to achieve 4P Medicine, the applications of rising tech on monitoring and analysis will not be limited to conventional health indexes like blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar, and other biometric indicators, but rather extend to lifestyle such as diet, exercise, health condition, sleep quality, body-mind balance, and external factors.

The products and services needed to attain 4P Medicine range from health food, dietary supplement, exercise equipment, monitoring devices to medicine, medical equipment, and most importantly, medical person-nel, including doctors, nurses, orderlies, and in-home nursing or home care service. Hence, to provide timely service, it is necessary to build up a whole new retailing business model of customer to business (C2B) and customer to manufacture (C2M), in addition to suitable products and ser-vices. FinTech will play an important role in perfect financial services. For example, cryptocurrency and innovative incentive mechanism can be used to encourage healthy life, diet, exercise, self-help and mutual-aid behavior, and other non-conventional medical care behavior as well as to reward clients for their contributions to related business and services.

In order to realize the benefit of cross-industry innovation, iABC team has designed a Cyber-Physical System, CPS, to connect hospitals, nursing care institutions, and new commercial and financial service for the devel-opment of human-centered medical and health care as shown in the fol-lowing diagram:

system is based on the private data bank of blockchain, which collects, store, and analyze internal and external data information of hospital, in-cluding environmental sensor, medical record, equipment reading, wear-able device, on-line purchase history, social network, data from app. and other information to let clients decide whether or not to share the data; it also integrates medical history, insurance claim, food, and product rec-ord into a uniform, reliable, and unalterable ledger of blockchain, allowing AI to detect fraud more effectively, and identify health management risk factors. Moreover, through the insurance and re-insurance contracts of blockchain, the information and the payment process between insurance company and clients is able to be simplified and automated, resulting in speedy claims, higher client satisfaction, and lower cost. Eventually, med-ical and health care institutions can be compensated more quickly, and clients do not need to pay until receiving their claims.

New Health, New Retailing, and New Finance

In order to achieve human-centered, 4P Medicine-based networked med-ical and health care, iABC has designed a smart API-based CPS with Big Data Center, FinTech and Blockchain Center of Asia University, Fu-sion360, Asia University Hospital, China Medical University Hospital. The iABC team has also looked aggressively for partners to establish an in-dustrial and academic medical and health care ecological circle. The fol-lowings are two on-going cases iABC and its partners are working on.

Case 1, Cross-border O2O (On-line to Off-line) Medical and Health Care Business Model

iABC is working with a traditional company whose mission is focused on people’s greater health, expecting to set up a cross-border business model, by means of introducing rising AI and blockchain techniques, to transform it into a global ecological system service corporation.

The team of iABC has designed a new retail business model to achieve omni-channel business. By means of innovatively integrating business model, such as traditional B2C (including B2B2C, B2B, and M2C), and highly secure, privacy protected C2B and C2M, to provide high-quality products and timely services intended to individual health. OR, business analysis, and AI are the key to the operation of an ecological system. Par-ticipants, including supplier, manufacturer, retailer, distributor, platform provider, and customer are most benefited from many-to-many smart pairing and awarding/incentive mechanism. The blockchain technique as-sures privacy and security, and, more importantly, effectively put C2B and C2M business models into practice. Among all this, there are still plenty of interesting and challenging designing issues existing in the award-ing/incentive cryptocurrency mechanism.

Case 2, Blockchain Volunteer’s Time Bank

For the labor intensive long-term and elderly care industry, the major dif-ficulty stems from limited capital and shortage of professionals. Based on the technical cooperation of iABC and Fusion360, the blockchain tech-nique has been applied on the publication of an award-based time cryp-tocurrency. For instance, volunteers can earn, certified by the service institution, time cryptocurrency, and at the same time, deposit it into a time bank according to the smart contract of various terms of their choice under the protection of blockchain.

The cryptocurrency can then be a tool linking other services. For exam-ple, by way of providing services, volunteers can exchange the cryptocur-rency for health care or cleaning service for their family and friends, or use it to pay for coffee of equal value through linking retailing service. Ad-ditionally, time cryptocurrency can be transferred to another person through time bank, or saved in the time bank based on the terms of the smart contract. The time bank is not only just a mutually beneficial mech-anism, but also an altruistic social welfare system through the creation of sharing economy and a mutual-aid environment. Similar to the aforemen-tioned omni ecological economy, smart pairing and awarding mechanism assure the best service and systematic functions for different services and individuals that is critical to the overall effectiveness of the system.

Conclusion

While medical and health care innovation is significant to global welfare, new retailing and new finance have to develop hand in hand with new health so as to accomplish the transformation of the 4P Medicine-based medical and health care. As a result of OR, analytics, and AI, the intelli-gence, blockchain-protected security and privacy, and smart contract have opened up a wonderful opportunity for the innovation of business models. iABC would like to collaborate with the academy and industry around the world under the framework of an open ecological circle sys-tem to create a better world by taking good us of rising technology. The team of iABC would be delighted to cooperate with OR and management science professionals to make a contribution in the medical arena for a start. iABC is capable of helping academic researchers and leading man-ufacturers in Taiwan set up joint research projects on IoT, mobile device, medical and health care, retailing, finance, and fintech, and so on; the iABC team would make every effort to keep Taiwan’s research on AI, blockchain, medical and health care, and health updated with global cor-porations.

尿毒患者之智能治療

計畫期程:民國107年05月01日起至民國107年12月31日
計畫主持人:亞洲大學附設醫院腎臟科/中國醫藥大學附設醫院腎臟科 劉耀隆主治醫師

尿毒患者之智能醫療 (a)硬體系統 (b)軟體系統

腹膜透析(Peritoneal dialysis, PD)利用人體內腹膜為過濾網,在腹腔注入透析溶液,利用體內的腹膜過濾清除血液中的廢物和雜質。整體來說,腹膜透析比血液透析有較高的機會恢復殘餘的腎功能,維持較好的生活品質。台灣腹膜透析使用者偏低,若能提高腹膜透析使用比率,除了對於病人影響較小以外,也可以大幅降低健保支出。連續性可攜帶腹膜透析(Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis, CAPD)為常見的腹膜透析治療方法,可以由病人自行操作一天4次的換液,每次換液時,先將腹腔內含代謝廢物的透析液引流出腹部,再灌入新鮮的透析液,。新鮮透析液在腹腔內停留4-6小時做廢物的交換後,才需再次換液,這段期間病人可自由活動。病人需要手工記錄使用透析藥水種類,同時也需要利用傳統磅秤來量測透析藥水進出量,精準紀錄每日透析過程,回報給醫生作為治療的參考。然而,部分病患為求方便,不確實的進行CAPD操作,也不依照實際狀況進行紀錄,容易造成下肢水腫、肺積水和呼吸衰竭等併發症。另外,腹膜透析也須要盡量避免併發腹膜炎感染。

為了解決上述CAPD病患未能遵造醫囑確實執行CAPD流程和降低CAPD病患感染腹膜炎及其他併發症的機率,本計畫將發展尿毒患者之智能醫療監測系統,開發一個智能感測系統來協助CAPD患者和醫師。本計畫所發展的智能醫療監控硬體系統,包含流量計、濁度計和藍芽無線傳輸裝置。體積微小的流量計可以用來監控CAPD病患灌液及脫水量的準確性,除了方便使用、減少病人操作不當等優點以外,也可以避免病人不確實記錄的風險。體積微小的濁度計可以用來監控CAPD病患含代謝廢物透析液的濁度,可以協助醫師判斷併發腹膜炎的機率。藍芽無線傳輸裝置則是將病患灌液體積、脫水體積和代謝液濁度等數據傳輸到智能醫療監控軟體。

本計畫所發展的智能醫療監控軟體,將開發智能醫療服務app,包含藥水袋QR code掃描和智能醫療雲端系統。CAPD病患可以藉由藥水袋QR code掃描確實記錄所使用的透析液。智能醫療雲端系統可以由遠端的智能醫療物聯網監控病人CAPD狀況,如發現患者有透析液使用不確實或脫水量異常等狀況,將通知專業醫療人員,主動聯繫CAPD病患。在病患每月回診時,還可以給醫護人員可以對進行分析此智能醫療物聯網的資料及調整治療處方,打造醫療訊息平台,提供更有效率、更便捷的智能醫療服務。利用大數據分析降低病患發生腹膜炎、肺積水、呼吸衰竭等併發症的機率。

本計畫預計能衍生成立一家新創公司,新創公司會著手進行在台生產的產品規劃與法規驗證準備,在預計在2021前,產品公開上市前對外進行一次公開募資,目標以台灣市場、美國或中國的市場作為主要的發展策略,將本計劃開發出的系統成為以後腹膜透析治療的標準配備。
