Everyone is weary of giving the same medical exams or writing down their medical history repeatedly when they see a new doctor. Such dreadful incidents bring to light some of the issues facing the healthcare sector. Unfortunately, there are not many effective options.
Laws like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which permit the centralization of health records but forbid the exchange of said data, are a significant problem. Those supporting patients (e.g., doctors, emergency medical service personnel, researchers) cannot offer top-notch care without having a thorough understanding of a patient’s health situation due to frequently limited access to their private records.
A decentralized healthcare information ecosystem built on blockchain technology for patients, healthcare providers, and researchers, blockchain platforms can help us operate according to an open-source protocol. It can track and record everything related to your healthcare, including doctor visits and record updates, thanks to its blockchain platform.
Patients can receive dependable, quick care by compiling all of their medical information into one clear format, and they can be given control over how their records are distributed.Close
