People’s health data should not be monopolized by a
few but must be safely controlled and utilized in transparent manner for the public
Patients’ health data has been in the hands of the third parties
who try to monopolize and commercialize it. Thus, it was nearly impossible for patients
to know to what extent their health record is collected, who needs it and how it is
used. However, on blockchain that provides transparent environment in data usage,
anyone can look up the transactions of data and ultimately patients can retain control
and authority over their own health data.
