Is blockchain the answer to fragmented, inaccessible,expensive healthcare data?

With the new and evolving regulatory requirements, governance structure as suggested by the Stuart McLennan,David Shaw and Leo Celi, in the article below is absolutely needed not just for critical care but for all of healthcare.

McLennan, S., Shaw, D. & Celi, L.A. Intensive Care Med (2018).

Data cannot remain fragmented and inaccessible increasing cost,accountability and stalling much needed transformation.

Can blockchain help?
Some of the initial work done at MIT shed some light on possibilities.

Predictive analytics for early recognition and intervention in sepsis

In medicine, time and again early intervention has improved morbidity and mortality.Early recognition is the first step in early intervention to improve quality of care.While many prediction models are in use,implementation has been challenging.

Many have used EHR(electronic health record) data to develop predictive models and implement them through EHR.Many are using state of the art dashboards and mobile platforms for effective and efficient communication of predictions.

We are proud to highlight the work being done by one of the founding members of Team BrainX,Dr.Jeremy Weiss, in development of predictive analytic tools for early recognition of sepsis.
