South Korean hospital to integrate blockchain-based health data management solution

Wed, 24 Apr 2019, 09:12 am UTC

Blockchain-based medical data marketplace Longenesis has signed an agreement with the leading South Korea hospital Gil Medical Center to design and integrate a custom blockchain-based health data management solution.

Longenesis is a partnership between Insilico Medicine, an artificial intelligence company that uses deep learning for drug discovery, and blockchain startup Bitfury. Earlier this month, Bitfury, in collaboration with Longenesis, announced a blockchain-based consent management system for the healthcare industry

Gil Hospital is the first South Korean hospital to have adopted Longenesis' blockchain-based health data management solution.

According to the press release, the solution is built on Bitfury's open-source Exonum blockchain framework.

Using the Longenesis health data management solution, Gil Medical Center will be able to “upload, store and manage the data of individual patients in a secure environment, giving full control of data usage and access back to patients.” It will also be able to better manage consent forms and status for individual researchers, which better facilitate the advancement of clinical trials.

In addition, the blockchain-based solution will also address the specific compliance needs of these patients (including with HIPAA and GDPR regulations).

"Gil General Hospital has a splendid reputation for being on the edge of adopting latest innovation. We are honored to mark our Korean presence with a partnership like such," said Garri Zmudze, CEO of Longenesis.
