The Hague, 12 June 2018 –From 27 to 29 May the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference was held in Sitges. This is the largest digital health conference in Europe where more than 2,000 interested people from 45 different countries attended.
Patients can manage their consent at any time via an app or website, this is stored on the blockchain.
HIMSS Europe 2018 had four central themes based on the patient. The entire digital healthcare ecosystem was discussed, including blockchain in healthcare. Laurens de Groot of the Radboud UMC highlighted and presented the Ledger Leopard app in the presentation.
The “Consentus” prototype was conceived during a hackathon by Topicus, Deloitte and Radboud UMC. The idea is that it must be a utility. Medical organizations and institutions such as general practitioners, hospitals, laboratories, and pharmacists can ask patients permission to access the patient’s file. Patients can manage their consent at any time via an app or website, this is stored on the blockchain. This gives patients more control over who has access to their data and enables caregivers to provide better care.
We are happy that we were present and thank Radboud UMC and of course the organization of HIMMS: HIMSS Europe, Nictiz, VMBI, and Cognicum.
