 The practical application of CallHealth and ThynkBlynk’s ChainTrail Blockchain Distributed Ledger approach in Healthcare addresses key issues plaguing the Indian Healthcare system.

CallHealth has partnered with ThynkBlynk, the developers of ChainTrail, to ensure secured healthcare data integration on its platform. This is India’s first-ever blockchain services partnership with a healthcare service platform. It has the unique ability to securely integrate data from all types of healthcare services and thousands of healthcare ecosystem providers like Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals, Clinics etc in compliance with stringent data privacy regulations.

eHR systems in India use different information models. Due to this, stringing together data from multiple healthcare sources is becoming a challenge. By standardising Healthcare outputs like prescriptions and reports, information is made verifiable and interoperable, giving patients better control over their personal health information. Patients can take their verifiable personal health data and transact with anyone they choose. At the same time, Healthcare providers can verify and ensure any data migration into their systems is accurate.

 

The practical application of CallHealth and ThynkBlynk’s ChainTrail Blockchain Distributed Ledger approach in Healthcare addresses key issues plaguing the Indian Healthcare system, such as:

A) Fake or fraudulently modified documentation coupled with lack of digital data verification is leading to clinical inaccuracies and dependency on manual verifications which in turn result in high overhead costs

B) Demand for repeated procedures and pathological tests in the absence of trusted data sources is causing high out of pocket expenses for patients and strains the already burdened healthcare system.

By ensuring every data point is auditable, traceable, controlled and is immutable, a trusted information exchange platform provides for better integration within the Health ecosystem.  

 

C) Printing and retaining paper, providing copies to patients of their data on demand, transferring paper trail through the entire network of doctors, hospitals diagnostic centres etc and manually verifying data at every stage is a cumbersome as well as expensive experience for providers and patients.

Chaintrail makes the entire supply chain efficient by providing a single-point interface for greater operational simplicity.
