Electronic Health Records: Is Blockchain a Good Fit?
Even though paper records for most medical practices have evolved to digital, all of that data currently resides in silos, where consumers attempt to reconcile data among their providers and health payors. This can be challenging, as there is no single source that identifies where all of an individual’s health data resides, let alone the order in which it was entered.
Blockchain - What Is It Good for?
Much is said about blockchain technology, and how it will change how business operates.

But it should be no surprise that blockchain technology is already being used to secure the digital electronic health record (EHR) of large numbers of people in Europe.

After more than 2 decades of online shopping and online banking, online access to medical records for patients is finally entering health care’s mainstream.
