Healthcare App and Its Ability To Empower Users To Take Control of Their Data

Since the inclusion of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), all healthcare organizations have become vigilant in securing patient data. However, despite all the fines, many medical institutions have nevertheless been found guilty of data breaches. To curb data breaches and as data is no longer stored individually by an organization and is stored on cloud servers or managed by a data management company, new rules such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) have been enforced.
GDPR is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states and While GDPR has been around for over two years, the results are staggered as organizations are incapable of securing the data using their outdated security mechanisms. The solution for this problem exists beyond the traditional laws, as fines and hoping for the best is not viable. Blockchain technology is the forerunner in protecting sensitive data by storing it on a secure and impregnable digital ledger.
Blockchain eliminates the possibility of data breaches helping organizations and healthcare institutions and patients rest easy as their data is secured and kept safely.
