Forging a new patient-provider connection
What does blockchain-based technology have to do with healthcare? Everything. This complex technology can drive significant improvements in the healthcare value chain. Specifically, it can eliminate long delays, reduce costs and minimise human errors. Developed by the EU-funded PatientDataChain project, this new technology puts the patient-provider relationship in the hands of the patient. For instance, the patient is able to accept, reject or modify relationships with insurers, clinics, hospitals and other healthcare providers. It also provides patients and doctors with a log of healthcare records. Overall, the project will enhance information exchange, reduce costs, simplify procedures and increase awareness about patient data.
