Ljubljana, Slovenia – Iryo, a new blockchain startup creating a globally participatory healthcare network will soon provide a modern electronic health record system for refugee camps in the Middle East as their first real-world use case.
All across the world, patients currently have little or no control in regards to how they interact with their medical records. A patient may have to see multiple specialists and carry around paper copies of his records as they travel from one healthcare provider to the next. Medical information is one of the most sensitive forms of data, not only publicly, but also when it comes to high-profile individuals, governing individuals, professionals, etc. However, not only do patients lack easy access to their data they also don’t have a say in how the data is used. At the moment, the patient is entirely left out of the equation of medical data monetization. The data is locked in hospitals and healthcare IT systems, and it’s either the hospitals or the healthcare providers that directly use this data to create new solutions that bring profit.
