2020 Pandemic Roundtable
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/2020-pandemic-roundtable/
Apr 07, 2020 - Our research shows that blockchain holds enormous potential for helping us to anticipate public health crises, prepare for them far more effectively, and manage them when they hit. There are challenges here in every sector—public and private alike—and opportunities for every leader, innovator, and entrepreneur. The crisis emerged amid problems with data, transparency, security, and trust—all problems that innovators have tackled using this new “Internet of Value.” We need a novel approach to data, health records, and citizen identity, an approach that provides the required information to authorities without undermining the rights of...
Blockchain and the Project Management Office
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-and-the-project-management-office/
May 21, 2019 - This research delves into the current state of project management and how blockchain technology is beginning to transform it. Its authors identify five key areas where blockchain-based platforms and applications can support the efforts of the project management office, including creating and managing digital records, exchanging digital assets, verifying and reinforcing acceptable performance, building reputation systems, and executing smart contracts. It presents case studies of enterprises that are currently deploying blockchain to manage clinical trials, construction projects, and the provenance and custody of assets in collaborations with ...
Medical and Biopharma Research
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/medical-and-biopharma-research/
Dec 11, 2017 - The healthcare systems of many countries work for neither healthcare professionals nor their patients. This research examines how we can fix healthcare by applying a new set of principles—collaboration, openness, and integrity—to medical research and clinical trials.
Reinventing Healthcare on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic, Video
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/reinventing-healthcare-on-the-blockchain/
Jan 12, 2018 - The healthcare systems of many countries work for neither the medical professionals nor the patients they serve. It is the only industry where innovation drives costs up. The problem ultimately resides in industrial-age thinking about healthcare delivery, where intermediaries hoard data, assume patient ignorance, and exclude anyone without insurance. This project flips the model: patients co-create and own their data, have full access to it, and can monetize it on the blockchain.
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.
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.
