South Korean Hospital To Launch Blockchain Medical Data Management Platform
Longenesis, a blockchain-powered medical data marketplace and biotechnology company Insilico Medicine have signed an agreement with South Korean hospital Gil Medical Center to create a blockchain-based health data management solution.
The parties intend to develop a blockchain-powered platform based on Bitfury’s Exonum blockchain framework to increase the efficiency of data collection, boost medical research processes and ensure transparent management of patient consent.
Longenesis will provide a secure ecosystem for Gil Medical Center to upload, store and manage patients’ private data, allowing patients to control and access their data as well. The platform also aims to address compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations as the hospital also provides services to foreigners.
