- Clinical and biomedical research
Blockchain technology can speed up research, open access to data, and strengthen control over the results. Blockchain is able to eliminate data falsification and exclude leaks of clinical research results.
Insurance claims processing may become a promising area of blockchain application in healthcare. All sides of this process can benefit from transparency, decentralization and immutability of data stored on the blockchain. Insurers will reduce costs while policyholders will be able to receive compensation faster when insured events occur.
The immutability of the data will simplify the audit and improve the detection of fraud attempts. All involved parties will be able to access information from several different sources at once.
- Telemedicine and remote patient monitoring
Blockchain can also be used for remote monitoring of the condition of patients outside the hospital. For example, using ioMT devices - sensors, wearables and mobile apps.
The technology, in this case, will allow you to keep the collected data completely safe, and doctors, clinics, laboratories and insurance companies will have access to a single up-to-date version of the medical card, excluding the possibility of data loss or intentional modification.
