The Chinese University of Hong Kong in partnership with software company ConsenSys has launched a blockchain-powered COVID-19 digital health passport.
The Medoxie COVID-19 Digital Health Passport leverages the Ethereum blockchain to record certain medical events, including test results, temperature testing, resistance, and vaccination, that come with the COVID-19. In an official blog post on Tuesday, ConsenSys wrote:
It is important that a patient’s private data remains confidential and that users have full control over the parties who may have access to their data, while also ensuring that the data is verified and non-transferable. The Medoxie COVID-19 Digital Health Passport will solve these challenges using blockchain technology.
Medoxie was built using Codefi Orchestrate and ConsenSys Korum, and it essentially restricted and allowed access to patient health history while promoting data privacy. The platform will also be available to a wide range of stakeholders, including healthcare professionals and academics in Hong Kong. The service will be extended to patients later.
Speaking to crypto news outlet Forkast.News, Charles d’Haussy, ConsenSys manager for APAC, said:
As with all health -related technologies, the program began with a trial period of only hospital staff, before growing to more and more groups later… All effort to avoid covid. Blockchain technology is perfectly suited for mass collaboration across various systems and health records.
