Utah employs blockchain for medical records sharing


David Abel

Utah has teamed up with HHS Technology Group (HTG) to design and employ a blockchain-powered solution for sharing patient records.

From this partnership, a solution will be provided to facilitate the sharing of data among medical providers, health plans and patients. The solution is expected to be very useful during natural disasters and other related crises.

This medical records database will be based on MediBook, a HTG’s blockchain-powered, cloud-based solution.

Patient data can be accessed via a blockchain-based digital wallet, while also maintaining the data’s integrity and security.
