As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, one thing remains constant: the need for secure and efficient sharing of medical data and permissions. In the Netherlands, hospitals are required to obtain permission from patients before sharing their medical data with other hospitals. However, the process is often burdensome, requiring patients to fill out a paper list containing 160 questions for every hospital they visit. This is not only time-consuming but also frustrating for patients who have to go through the same process over and over again.
Ledger Leopard, has developed a proof of concept blockchain solution for the Radboud Hospital in the Netherlands. The solution allows patients to give easy permissions to all hospitals they select to share their medical data. The app is powered by a blockchain solution that ensures decentralized permissions to hospitals, connected to their own internal permission systems.
The Ledger Leopard solution has completely transformed the way patients give permission to share their medical data. Instead of filling out a lengthy paper list, patients can now use the app to easily give permissions to hospitals to share their data. This has not only saved patients time and frustration but also helped hospitals to provide better care by having access to more comprehensive medical information.
The success of Ledger Leopard’s solution has not gone unnoticed. Other hospitals in the Netherlands and beyond have started a analyzing the blockchain solutions, and the company’s innovative approach to healthcare data sharing could potentially become a game-changer in the industry.
The benefits of the blockchain solution are clear. Patients no longer have to go through the tedious process of filling out paper forms, and hospitals have access to more comprehensive medical information, which can lead to better patient outcomes.
