GNU Health is the Free/Libre Health and Hospital information system
Silicon Republic, block chain startups raised $1.4 billion in 2016 and $1 million in 2017.
According to Hyperledger’s survey, 42.9% of healthcare organizations suppose that the interoperability of electronic health records will help for faster blockchain implementation; with 28.6% of respondents ready to use this technology in care settings today. So, what are the benefits of blockchain technology in healthcare?
- Patient health information (PHI);
- Electronic health records;
- Data collected from IoT devices (Internet of Things) or monitoring systems; and,
- Medical insurance claims.
More Secure Standards
- Technical proof of concept (PoC) (65.4%);
- Security proof (38.5%);
- Privacy proof (34.6%); and,
- Regulatory approval (23.1%).
- Drug traceability;
- Data security in clinical trials; and,
- Patient Data Management.
Patient Data Management
Patient data privacy is strictly regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and requires PHI to be totally secure.
