Blockchain technology protects personal data
Protecting the personal data of patients is a major issue that the healthcare industry has to handle with care.
At present, patient data, such as medical history, medical records, and personal data, are mostly stored in the database of a single hospital or medical institution. There are three risks: data leakage, data being damaged or deleted, and difficulty in transfer of medical records. The emergence of blockchain technology can be a safe and effective solution for data storage and protection.
The characteristic of the blockchain is that once the information is entered into the blockchain, it cannot be modified. Meanwhile, patients can authorize access by different institutions. This is an ideal tool that can greatly protect the privacy of patients and improve the circulation of medical information!
