Blockchain Technology in EHR

Blockchain by definition is a secure/shared auditable ledger which enables sharing of digital assets. This fundamental is the core of the proposed system.

With the proposed new system for Electronic Health Record, we prioritize patient as the most important beneficiary simultaneously building trust and confidence for all the other parties involved.

The $80 Billion healthcare industry observes medical error as the 3rd leading cause of patient death due to lack of availability of a patient’s clinical history – claimed by Johns Hopkins University researcher. With the proposed system, every patient will have a unique identity over blockchain network and his clinical data generated at various stages will be stored with his unique identity as EHR digital asset on the blockchain network. This immutable data can be accessed by the necessary parties involved.
Healthcare domain will see considerable and beneficial impact once Blockchain based systems are adopted across the Patient and healthcare provider ecosystem.
