Blockgene connects medical or genomic data of varying databases and formats and storage technologies (servers, clouds, decentralized). With adapted semantics, all data is searchable from everywhere.
Access to private medical data must be authorized by the patient through existing electronic health records or private apps. Blockgene provides traceability on the blockchain, consent on case-by-case basis.
Trust-free access to medical information for pharma, insurance and other interested parties. No transfer of data, access through secure multi-party computation, including case-by-case monetization.
More medical and genomic data is the key for the advent of personalized medicine and a more efficient health system. Faster and more effective drug discovery depends on large amounts of medical data to provide more targeted, personalized drugs.
Everyone in the health care ecosystem profits from the increased accessibility of medical data. Blockgene provides a fast, trust-free blockchain-based system to integrate legacy and newly established repositories. Database integration, search, authorization and provision connects the genomic data value chain from healthcare providers to patients and pharmaceutical companies.
We are fully aware of the fact that health care systems have a long history and track record which will not change and adapt overnight. Blockgene strives to integrate itself into existing health systems without ever compromising the benefits of the analysis, provision and exchange of medical data. We recognize and integrate different storage systems, file formats as well as different types of electronic health records.
Why is DNA different from other medical data?
In contrast to other medical data like blood pressure, sugar levels or other indicators, genomic data does only marginally change during your lifetime. It is the blueprint for your physical existence. The high sensitivity of this data for privacy breaches, combined with the increasing value of genomic data for present and future well-being, makes it the more urgent to protect and open genomic data at the same time.
The opposing and concurrent requirements at of trust and privacy, and the ability to exchange data, make the blockchain the technology of choice to be used for genomic data.
Healthcare includes many stakeholders who's needs and workflows have to be accounted for. Blockgene integrates into existing ecosystems to provide more medical and genomic data for drug development. Security, privacy, authorization and provision are the cornerstones of our blockchain solution for genomic data.
"You should have personalized genomics, personalized physiology, personalized medicine, where each person's different, and each body is an integrated whole."
