Patient data is securely stored through the use of blockchain technology
Implications - Recording and securely sharing patient data has long been a significant pain point for the healthcare industry, and with heightened sensitivity in light of data breaches and privacy concerns from large corporations like Facebook, this concern is magnified for the average consumer. To quell these concerns, blockchain technology is being used to securely and accurately store health records. Not only does this elevate the standard of care that health care providers are able to administer, but in a world where our personal data is vulnerable, patients can have a greater sense of trust in the caretakers of their health-related information.
