Millennium expects to close the transaction no later than April 30, 2018.
“BurstIQ is changing the healthcare system for the better. Blockchain’s promise is being realized every day through the BurstIQ healthcare ecosystem,” said Enzo Villani, Chairman of Millennium Blockchain. “With the launch of their BIQ digital token, BurstIQ is adding a whole new layer of value to their current platform that truly places BurstIQ in its own class.”

BurstIQ’s proprietary blockchain-based big data platform enables Empiric to expand their service to other large health systems by securely managing customers’ data at scale and performing advanced analytics using the platform’s machine learning and collaborative intelligence capabilities. For individuals and self-insured employers, BurstIQ’s benefits marketplace will include a full range of insurance products and precision medicine services for all BIQ token holders.
