Sharing the medical data only with the concerned doctor is not effective as the current processes often allow a third person to peek into the sensitive data
Medical history information of a patient is vital for providing proper diagnosis but in most cases, patients do not have the medical history data with them
Even if patients have a record of medical history information, for majority, the list will not be complete and only partial data would be available for diagnosis
Doctors find it difficult to access important medical information of a patient such as allergic reactions, instructed diet plans, completed medication courses etc
Blockchain-based medical records enable patients to securely access and transport their medical records among different providers. The system will give the patient complete ownership of their medical data, history, and control of access. Patients will have the freedom to grant access as needed to medical professionals, pharmacies, labs etc. The entire “chain of control” will be managed by patients and their public key and thereby providing access to specific records, to specific providers, for specific periods of time is made seamless. This solution can keep an immutable and hack proof storage of all the medical data of the patient so that important information is never lost and is easily accessible as well as sharable to concerned doctor or pharmacy in a matter of seconds.
Architecture has built-in fault tolerance, disaster recovery, and cryptography technologies.
The application is built such that users need permission to read the information on the blockchain.
The application allows patients to restrict desired data before sharing with a provider.
Patients can access and track their medical records through the web and mobile application.
