Accessing Patient Health Records via Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/accessing-patient-health-records-via-blockchain/
Apr 21, 2020 - This case study looks at the University Health Network’s process for analyzing blockchain use cases and narrowing efforts to design and test a use case for patient data. In consultation with IBM Canada, UHN decided to focus on providing patients with access to and control over their electronic medical and healthcare records. Ultimately, UHN leveraged the IBM Blockchain Platform, a permissioned blockchain environment developed by IBM and powered by Hyperledger Fabric.

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-networked-hotbeds-of-blockchain/
Jan 15, 2018 - This paper showcases the hotbeds of blockchain activity around the world—those cities and nations that have become hubs for financing and incubation of entrepreneurial initiatives—and explains the conditions under which distributed ledger start-ups are thriving in each jurisdiction.
Blockchain for Saving Our Seas
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-for-saving-our-seas/
Oct 22, 2019 - This case study looks at how blockchain technology could help us clean up our vital ocean ecosystems, from shorelines and coral reefs to Arctic sea ice platforms. It spotlights the work of Ocean Marine Blockchain Solutions, in collaboration with the Girguis Lab at Harvard University and the Jamaican agency Alligator Head Foundation. Together they’re creating a digital and economic data framework that is reframing the situation from an environmental problem to an economic opportunity, which may succeed in driving a much-needed sea change.
Autonomous Vehicles and Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/autonomous-vehicles-and-blockchain/
Aug 31, 2019 - This project explores how blockchain technology will optimize the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), including those with electric vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. It looks at the Mobile Open Blockchain Initiative, which involves 80 percent of world’s auto manufacturers and leading tech firms. It covers such implementation challenges as blockchain latency and scalability, communications network latency, device security, and regulation. Finally, it raises concerns about data privacy on immutable distributed ledgers as well as the legal liabilities of CAV ownership and usage.
Reclaiming Medication on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/reclaiming-medication-remedichain/
Mar 31, 2020 - The RemediChain project has emerged as a blockchain-based national database that collects drug waste data and supports the redistribution of safe, unused drugs and the safe destruction of expired or spoiled medication. The platform—a hybrid of Enterprise Ethereum incorporating Hyperledger Besu client and Istanbul Byzantine fault tolerant 2.0 with a proof-of-authority consensus mechanism—checks the quality of donations and tracks their provenance from source to destination, either to patients or to government-approved incinerators. This research explores the opportunities and implementation challenges of such a solution for stakeholders.
