Nebula Data Intel

Elevating Medicine Through Intelligent Data

About NDI

The NDI Difference

Medical data exists in pockets — in many places and in many forms. Available data tends to be fragmented, difficult to collate and even more difficult to correlate. The industry needs data that can provide insights, improve patient outcomes, drive informed decision-making and innovation. While data abounds, there is no centralized source that aggregates multiple streams to provide the required analytics and insights.

Nebula Data Intel, LLC (NDI), in collaboration with the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), has created a new medical data intelligence program that collects and provides specialty-specific intelligent medical data generated by participating outpatient surgical centers.

By combining multiple streams of HIPAA compliant data, Nebula Data Intel provides a robust set of quantitative information that can be used to identify trends and drive informed decision-making.

NDI Advantage

NDI is a collaborative effort with AAAASF. Established in 1980, the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) was founded to standardize and improve the quality of healthcare in outpatient surgical facilities. AAAASF has deeming authority for the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), is certified by the International Society for Quality Healthcare (ISQua) and operates in 16 countries. With over 2,500 accredited facilities worldwide, it is considered the “Gold Standard in Accreditation.” Active collection of outcome data has resulted in an archive of 20 million records.

Combining the strategic assets and resources of AAAASF with Nebula Data Intel’s patented data collection processes and technology uniquely positions us to create a runaway solution in healthcare.

Aggregated and analyzed data will provide unparalleled insights to drive informed decision-making by allowing medical facilities and corporations to solve concerns around:

Ways to improve patient outcomes

Current market pricing climate

Benchmarking data

Medical supply product issues and use

Pharmaceutical usage and outcomes

Surgery producers and outcomes

This example shows abdominoplasty results, the correlation of Vicryl 0 sutures and instances of dehiscence. From the data, the facility can see that patients who have undergone radiation therapy have experienced a higher rate of dehiscense when these sutures were used. Access to this information will allow facilities to change which suture type is being used during abdominoplasties for patients that have this comorbidity.

To ensure the security and immutability of the medical data, blockchain and smart contract technology will be utilized during collection and the sales process.

More than 38 years of trusted relationships with 2,500+ facilities as our primary data source

Surgical theater and operational medical expertise

Firsthand knowledge of facility pain points

Low-impact technology that can capture data in seconds

Over 20 million records of clinical outcome data

IT development expertise in the outpatient surgery environments

Patient-Friendly, Non-Intrusive Data Collection

Nebula Data Intel has created a simple, non-intrusive data collection process for outpatient surgery centers. The key to data collection is through the preference card. Just a click on the customized preference card at the beginning of a procedure automatically captures demographic, usage, sales and performance data in real time. With just a few more clicks, anesthesia and recovery data are collected. Combined with longitudinal patient satisfaction data, Nebula collects a HIPAA compliant, holistic data set ready to be translated to reports, analyses and dashboards that can be used to make informed decisions.

NDI’s custom process takes an average of 3 clicks and less than 2 seconds to collect patient information.


NDI is looking to raise relevant funding to support our growth and reach a Phase I target of 1,000 participating facilities. Our analysis performed in conjunction with Harvard University ensures statistically relevant results.

We aim to generate these funds through an Security Token Offer (STO) with the sale of NDIGOLD TM Coins. These coins will be one of only a few preferred stock security tokens available on the market, and we have the proper team in place to ensure proper regulatory compliance with U.S. state and federal laws.

NDIGOLD TM will be the digital token that powers and incentivizes the Nebula Data Intel, LLC user community and data platform, meaning it functions as both a utility and security token. This design is to ensure use within the platform, encourage value growth, and create the revenue potential to provide dividends for our backers.

NDI Business Model

NDI has identified 12 verticals that could benefit from real-time data collection and has created a timeline to capture relevant information in each.

Data Monetization

Nebula Data Intel has identified a multi- tiered approach to data monetization.

Via our platform, the Nebula Data Intel Marketplace, data will be available for sale in multiple formats to meet the needs of all customers. Data may be purchased as raw, pre-packaged, or analyzed (AI) on a one-time or subscription basis. The Nebula Data Intel Marketplace platform supports the sale and integration of 3rd party data. An optional ‘concierge’ service will match buyers with customized data sets.

In addition to the marketplace, our real-time data will be used to create multiple indices that will be traded on exchanges such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) or the InterContinental Exchange (ICE).

To ensure the security and immutability of the medical data, blockchain and smart contract technology will be utilized during collection and the sales process.

Data Tiers:

  1. Surgical Center, Real-Time Data
    1. Sale of raw data on the cash market
  2. e-Commerce Data Marketplace:
    1. Sale of 3rd party data from corporations, hospitals, universities and research centers.
    2. Advisory fees for assisting in promoting, packaging and marketing 3rd party data.
    3. AI and ML analytics applied data and data combinations.
  3. Data Exchange:
    1. A fee from the derivatives off the cash market sale of the granular NDI real-time data via the CME or ICE.

Rapid growth is expected in the US and internationally both in collecting medical data and in attracting companies, hospitals and universities to our platform. There is a strong value proposition for these entities to, not only buy and sell data, but to improve patient safety and elevate medicine worldwide.
