As part of efforts to consolidate the policy of the government's hierarchical medical system, the Hospital of the Medical University of Taipei has introduced a platform driven by the blockchain for the progress of the keeping of medical records .
to improve referral services for patients and integrate individual health networks so that people can access their medical records with relative ease, according to a Taipei Times report.
In a statement issued by the hospital, the platform will be a single referent and long-term care service supporting the government's Hierarchical Medical System policy.
The project incorporated the collaboration of over 100 community-based clinics and employed the use of blockchain technology to address "pain points" in the health sector. Among these we mention the transfer of data between medical institutions, patient portals and medical referral procedures, the hospital wrote.
"The use of smart contracts, hospitals and clinics can request and authorize the sharing of patient records in an easy and safe way". 19659003] The superintendent of the Chen Ray-jade hospital, who spoke with the store, said the technology could provide a way to synchronize electronic health records with electronic medical records of various clinics and hospitals. It would also have a notification and consent security feature before any transfer takes place.
Taipei has followed the path of other health facilities around the world using ledger technology in the management of medical data.
In early August, a large-scale medical ecosystem for the safe storage and transfer of sensitive genomic and personal information was developed jointly by South Korea's Macron biotechnology company and local technology company , the Bigster. The move is expected to reshape the global medical landscape by enabling secure storage and transfer of large amounts of sensitive genomic and personal information through the blockchain.
The German group Camelot Consulting has also introduced a blockchain-like technology developed for the management of sensitive medical devices data in April.
