Engineers have successfully developed and validated the feasibility of blockchain-based technologies for secure, confidential sharing of patient medical records.
The use of blockchain will change paradigm towards patient-centered healthcare.
“A central pillar of blockchain is trust, because data cannot be altered,” says Dr Eberhard Scheuer, Chairman of the Health Information Traceability Foundation.
