Solving Real Healthcare Challenges With Blockchain Regulatory Compliance Of Health Data Processing

Waste, fraud and abuse in healthcare globally costs billions of dollars. Making sure third parties who access, store, manage and analyze health data are trustworthy is critical. GDPR and HIPAA compliant, Guardtime HSX provides immutable health data across multiple legal jurisdictions using blockchain technology.

Key benefits of KSI blockchain based HSX platform

Use case

Real-world data access and trials

The FDA estimates that almost 10% of the trials monitored feature issues related to consent management, such as failure to obtain informed consent, unapproved forms, poor quality patient data, and missing Institutional Review Board approvals. However - complete, consistent, and accurate data should be attributable, legible, contemporaneously recorded, original or a true copy, and accurate.

Guardtime HSX is able to adapt and build on the changing regulatory landscape globally. Unlike other blockchain solutions, Guardtime HSX does not distribute medical and patient identifiable information on an open distributed blockchain. HSX’s permission based blockchain solution provides patients and regulators peace of mind that medical data is unable to be tampered with from the outside.

Use case

Trustworthy big data analytics for biobanks and data lakes

Big Data can mean different things to different organizations, but few things are certain: the volume, velocity and variety of data are increasing at an exponential rate, and organizations must have a Big Data strategy to make better business decisions. Blockchain plays a significant part in providing assurance of integrity and authenticity of data, while guaranteeing non-repudiation.

Guardtime HSX blockchain technology is able to process millions of medical records per second - bridging the gap between real time health data and research. Utilising Guardtime HSX’s technology stack - researchers are able to access in real time medical data through an API for a third party AI solution.
