Medical Diagnostics Web (MDW), provider of the first radiology Blockchain platform designed to connect all players in the diagnostic digital imaging ecosystem, has partnered with the Bitfury Group and Longenesis to bring new implementations in Blockchain technology to grow MDW’s radiology market. The partnership will build a next-gen platform for maintaining, sharing and protecting diagnosis data and medical imaging.
As the first radiology Blockchain platform, MDW is enabling radiologists to contract with imaging facilities and securely share patient data and medical images including X-rays and CT scans (Computed Tomography) for interpretation. According to the reports, the blend of new technologies, developed on Bitfury’s Exonum private Blockchain framework, will take the security of susceptible medical information to the next level. It will offer users with a more improved and distinct ecosystem while enabling transactions to be authenticated by nodes installed at different respected sites that utilizing anchoring technology to build trust in recorded transactions. On the other front, Longenesis’ data management practices will make sure that medical data, while recorded transparently through Blockchain, is easily reached only by verified parties like HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation), et al in full compliance. Bitfury CEO Valery Vavilov stated that the platform will advance the security and transparency of dealings in the medical sector.
Blockchain technology can reinforce patient data security by offering a tamper-proof record of patient history while at the same time giving a boulevard for doctors to more simply sharing information. The partnership between MDW, Bitfury, and Longenesis appeared at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019 global conference and exhibition, in Orlando, FL.
