On August 10, 2021, ConsenSys Health agreed to acquire FHIRBlocks, an innovative developer of solutions to support self-sovereign patient-directed fine-grained sharing of protected personal health information. The acquisition includes the transfer of FHIRBlocks’ Intellectual Property, as well as key executives and staff, business activities and relationships, to ConsenSys Health.
Currently, slow and error-prone manual processes have largely been used to administer patient data consents, but the introduction of digital communications using Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) for data-interoperability has shown clear benefits and is now mandated by regulations, such as the U.S. 21st Century Cures Act. In addition, patient and consumer privacy regulations, such as HIPAA, GDPR and CCPA are also mandating new processes.
