Contacts and Takeaways
The most important reason why I personally wanted to join the health hackathon, though: I’ve been looking for contacts, inspiration and validation of the real world use case I’m currently working on at Turbine. That is: storing a patient’s medical record and its access rights on a decentralized ledger. And I have not been disappointed:
Several parties, among them four co-workers of Berlin’s Charité, lawyers, doctors and consultants strongly confirmed my assumption: There is absolutely nothing like a shared digital patient file in Germany. All approaches toward it are heading into the direction of either medication plans, fitness tracking or “eGK” applications that collect and store data that a patient collects himself (e.g. by tracking her blood pressure). It’s astonishing, but every time I roughly illustrated our idea everybody became very excited and immediately offered their full support.
