- Ep. 21: Empowering Patient with Blockchain – Chrissa McFarlane (CEO Patientory)
According to a STAT News investigation published recently, multiple companies were involved in this complex web of transactions that turned patient data into lucrative business deals. Quintiles, now known as IQVIA, MedicaLogic, which was purchased by GE in 2002, Veritas Capital, which acquired and then sold GE’s medical records business as part of a larger deal worth $17B were all part of this elaborate unethical use of patient data. Data privacy protections are only as good as the technological policies that can be enforced in the entire healthcare ecosystem. Using blockchain technologies to give patients real ownership of their data can help solve this growing problem in the industry. Our data is not like oil which gets burned and cannot be reused. Our data is an extension of ourselves which can be reused and increases in value as more data is generated. People need to stand up for their right to their data.
