Problem

Patients have limited access since most medical data is transmitted on paper.

Solution

Based on blockchain technology, a platform will ensure trust, authenticity and security between stakeholders.

What’s the problem you’re trying to solve?

Today medical data is transmitted on paper. Patients have limited access, which means that medical tests sometimes have to be retaken and important data is often not available in an emergency. When patients have personal access to their data, they can decide with whom to share it, whether for their personal benefit (such as better insurance premiums) or for the benefit of research.

What are your goals and milestones?

The team bets that a blockchain-based backbone will be built by April 2019, allowing individuals to store medical data securely and share it with a medical practitioner. And this solution will provide a data marketplace and ecosystem between patients and healthcare insurers and providers by April 2020.

What’s your approach?

Based on blockchain technology, a decentralised platform will ensure trust, authenticity and security between the different stakeholders. The medical data is controlled by the patient and can be shared seamlessly with healthcare providers and researchers with the patient’s authorisation.

What’s the impact your aiming for?

Through the creation of a blockchain-based ecosystem, the healthcare system can be made more efficient without compromising the quality. By including every stakeholder (and thus also the patient), the digital transformation of healthcare and life sciences can be seen as a step towards personalised medicine.
