Gem United Tieto and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention apply block chains in the field of health care


nnIn the United States, Gem is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and European technology services firm Tieto to bring the benefits of the chain chain to the health care industry. In fact, the block chain can not be tampered with the characteristics of the medical community has been the concern, because this property is conducive to better storage of medical data and make patients master their own data, to develop personalized care. This is also the goal Gem and its partners want to achieve.n

Block chain is about to enter the field of health care.n
In the past year, the call to the medical community to accept the block chain of the growing voice.n
A pilot at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab has achieved significant results in a project with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. The project launched a block-chain application – creating a treatment book for eHealth records.n
Gem, now based in Venice, Calif., Is introducing block-chain technology into a wider range of applications through work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and European technology service company Tieto.n
Gem announced on September 25 that it will work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to form a block-chain application development team with 27 members.n
At the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers are exploring how to manage population health and cope with disasters by putting data collection and analysis operations into block chains.n
According to Gem CEO Micah Winkelspecht, this unchangeable account has obvious benefits in the event of a disease outbreak.n
Its analysis focuses on disaster relief and response. According to Winkelspecht, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is most concerned about the impact of environmental damage on population health.n
In particular, the data that has been collected will encounter the damage that CDC needs to solve. Putting data into immutable block-chain books helps to ensure data transparency and accuracy.n
At the same time, Gem and Tieto another cooperation with the project more widely. Tieto is involved in the creation of the Nordic medical system and now hopes to create a patient recording system based on the block-chain technology provided by Gem.n
By partnering with Tieto, Gem is taking the first step so that users have more of their own data and who knows who they want to share with the data.n
Winkelspecht said:n
n”We are creating a consent management solution for data sharing in the chain chain, and it is necessary to get the user’s consent to the other party / another hospital or to share it with it.”n
nThis is mainly due to the “General Data Protection Regulations” (General Data Protection Regulation) promulgated, the regulations will take effect in Europe next year.n
The regulations require individuals to have their own information and specify how they should manage, share and store data and how technology companies and third parties seeking to purchase such information should use them.n
Winkelspecht said:n
n”The reality is that your data is constantly being transferred between parties and is bought and sold without your knowledge.We believe that the General Data Protection Ordinance will return the data to the user to enable it to see the data Management and decide who to share data with. “n
nSpecifically, Gem and Tieto’s projects will link the genetic data stored in the Nordic bioinstructions, the hospital’s personal health records, and individual citizens to create personalized medical records to achieve more personalized care and treatment.n
The purpose of this idea is to give citizens the right to agree to associate their genetic data with their personalized health records without using an anonymous means so that patients can receive better treatment.n
