  • Patient Data Management

    Store health records on blockchain with each entry timestamped and unalterable once recorded, ensuring data integrity and preventing unauthorized alterations. You will empower patients to control who can access their health data, enhancing privacy and compliance with data protection regulations. Our developers will create a secure infrastructure for storing and managing electronic health records (EHRs) on a blockchain, ensuring the system supports data encryption and is compliant with healthcare regulations (like HIPAA).

  • Supply Chain Management

    Boost transparency and traceability of medical supplies and pharmaceuticals. You will prevent theft, counterfeiting, and tampering with medications and medical devices. You will also facilitate recalls and tracking of products’ lifecycles, ensuring that only safe and approved items are used in patient care. During development, we make tailored smart contracts that automatically update the ledger at each step of the supply chain, which is how transparency is provided.

  • Clinical Trials and Research

    Leverage blockchain smart contracts’ security and integrity to elevate the experience of clinical trials and medical research. As data from clinical trials is recorded on blockchain, it becomes tamper-proof and time-stamped, preventing retrospective alterations that could compromise the study’s validity. We build a system that safely stores this data, employing smart contracts that manage consent and compliance with trial protocols.

  • Medical Credentialing

    Streamline the medical credentialing process by providing a single, immutable record of a healthcare professional’s qualifications, certifications, and career history that can be accessed and verified by hospitals, clinics, and regulatory bodies in a moment’s time. Apart from the decentralized database, our devs will work on interfaces and APIs for real-time verification of credentials by hospitals and clinics, reducing the administrative burden and potential for fraudulent qualifications.

  • Health Insurance Claims Processing

    Automate and secure the health insurance claims process through smart contracts that execute tasks like verification of claims, calculation of reimbursements, and payment processing based on predefined rules and criteria. You will leverage a level of transparency that minimizes potential fraud and lets all the related parties (providers, insurers, and patients) track the status and history of claims in real time.

  • Consent Management

    Ensure compliance with regulations like GDPR and HIPAA and give patients greater control over their personal information with ease: with a tailored user interface for patients, blockchain can serve as a solution for latter to grant, deny, or revoke consents, with a firm ensurance these consents are logged immutably. During development, Devox also integrates these systems with existing healthcare databases to enforce the consents in real-time.

  • Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

    Devox professionals can integrate IoT with blockchain, forming the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) to enhance the security and reliability of data from connected medical devices. These solutions ensure that data from devices like wearable health monitors or embedded sensors (heart rate monitors, glucose monitors, etc.) can be securely collected, stored, and shared via blockchain.

Key Features

Key Features of Custom Blockchain for Healthcare

01

Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)

At the heart of blockchain is the distributed ledger, a decentralized database maintained by multiple participants (nodes) in different locations. This ledger records all transactions across the network in a transparent and immutable manner, making it nearly impossible to alter data once it has been recorded.

02

Cryptography

Blockchain uses advanced cryptographic techniques to secure data transactions. Each transaction is encrypted and linked to the previous transaction using cryptographic hashes. This ensures that data within the blockchain remains secure and tamper-proof.

03

Consensus Mechanisms

To validate transactions, blockchain networks employ consensus mechanisms, which are protocols that ensure all nodes in the network agree on their validity. Common consensus mechanisms used in healthcare blockchains include Proof of Work (PoW), Proof of Stake (PoS), and Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT).

04

Smart Contracts

These are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement directly written into code. In healthcare, smart contracts can automate many processes such as claims processing, compliance management, and data access agreements, reducing the need for intermediaries and enhancing efficiency.

05

Peer-to-Peer Network

Blockchain operates over a peer-to-peer network where each participant (node) holds a copy of the entire ledger, contributes to data validation, and can independently verify and audit transactions. This decentralized nature enhances data security and accessibility.

06

Identity Verification

Ensuring that only authorized users can access the network is crucial in healthcare. Blockchain incorporates robust identity verification mechanisms to manage and verify user identities, which is essential for maintaining data privacy and compliance with regulations like HIPAA.

07

Data Encryption

To protect sensitive medical data, blockchain employs data encryption techniques. Data is encrypted before being stored on the blockchain, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access it, even if they gain access to the physical storage.

08

Interoperability Standards

For healthcare applications, blockchain systems need to adhere to existing healthcare data standards such as HL7, FHIR, and DICOM. These standards ensure that the system can effectively communicate and exchange data with other healthcare systems and technologies.

Then, it’s time to design smart contracts for automating workflows and processes such as data sharing, claims management, and consent management.

04.

04. Prototype Development

We’re refining the core features of the blockchain solution to ensure it effectively meets the complex needs of healthcare systems without compromising on performance and security. We build a prototype to test the core functionality and feasibility of the blockchain application, using it then to refine the design based on feedback and performance issues. To test its functionality, we integrate it with mock data that simulates real-world healthcare scenarios, such as dummy patient records or simulated medication tracking, to observe how the blockchain manages data transactions, maintains security, and ensures data privacy and integrity.

05.

05. System Integration and Testing

When the system is ready, we integrate the blockchain solution with existing healthcare systems (e.g., electronic health records, management information systems). We ensure compatibility and interoperability with other systems and technologies. The necessary part of this stage is performing rigorous testing, including unit testing, integration testing, and performance testing to ensure system reliability, security, and compliance.

06.

06. Implementation and Deployment

Deploy the blockchain solution in a controlled, phased manner. We are transitioning the fully developed and tested blockchain solution from a controlled testing environment to live operational settings. Our team monitors the deployment to handle any integration issues and to ensure minimal disruption to existing systems.
