Utah Government Partners With HHS Technology to Develop Blockchain-Based Disaster Management System
HHS Technology has revealed that it has entered into a partnership with Utah government to develop a blockchain-based disaster management solution as part of the revamp of its disaster management system.
Partnership to Facilitate Data Sharing in the Health Sector
HHS Technology will develop and implement a patient’s record solution that would improve data sharing within the healthcare system. This according to the press release issued on September 14, 2020, would help ensure that information is properly delivered to health service providers during cases such as natural disasters and other crises within the State of Utah.
HHS Technology group is expected to develop the health management based on the HTG MediBook a blockchain-powered solution that enables the sharing and management of data across multiple systems.
MediBook is a novel blockchain solution that provides easy access to share confidential records of health data among patients and healthcare providers. It also helps to prevent the issue of data losses since the information is stored on a blockchain which guarantees its authenticity and security.
MediBook is also fully compliant with patient data sharing regulations in the United States and has passed through relevant checks from the Medical regulatory body. Patients’ information will be accessed by healthcare workers via a blockchain digital wallet that guarantees the integrity of data contained within it.
Blockchain Technology an Effective Tool During a Natural Crisis
Blockchain technology has witnessed an increase in adoption by sectors that are the first line of action during major crisis periods. Several key players within the health sector have integrated blockchain solutions in a bid to mitigate data mitigate potential problems during emergency situations.
The COVID 19 pandemic has further reinforced the need for a suitable patient record system as the traditional method of record-keeping was overwhelmed in terribly hit zones across the world.
Utah, in particular, is prone to a series of natural disasters including floods, avalanches, wildfire and it is great news that the government is looking for ways to integrate an effective method of data management for quick response to victims.
Blockchain technology provides medical firms with the ability to store health data of patients that can be accessed across the world and still maintain confidentiality.
