Bring transparency, simplicity and efficiency to all healthcare.
Lattice Network’s use cases in the healthcare industry provides solutions in a wide range of
areas. This includes
authentication of prescription drugs, where blockchain can verify accurate information via
the supply chain. And thanks
to our blockchain technology, we are able to ensure compliance, safety and security.
Medical data needs to be shared among many members of the healthcare industry (e.g.,
physicians, insurance companies). In an emergency, instant access to patient
information can save lives—but medical records are fragmented and difficult for
outsiders to use.
In health facilities, doctors have no way of sharing data with each other or
patients. As a result, patient records are incomplete and prone to individual
mistakes such as misremembering facts or losing paper copies before they’ve been
processed by another clinician. Because patients see many different doctors,
they do not have access to an accurate record of their medical history.
Limited data sharing
Risks for patients
Medical personnel have to use the information available, even if it’s incomplete
or poor quality.
Traditionally, healthcare has been slow to adopt new technology. As a result,
legacy systems may not be able to handle secure transmission of sensitive
The failure to share information among departments can lead to serious mistakes
Loss of trust
Single point of failure
Medical data is stored on central servers, which are vulnerable to hackers and
other malicious attacks that could expose personal information. Because
companies spend so much money on security, they expect to see a return. However,
their efforts fail to produce meaningful results. In 2018, 2.8 billion consumer
data records were exposed, causing an estimated total cost of $654 billion.
The LATTICE Network solution
When healthcare data is stored on a blockchain, all authorized parties can
access the same accurate and verified information in seconds - no matter their
location. The patient has full control of their data at all times and can share
it with others only when they choose to do so.
Global health records
Blockchains allow individuals to store and share their medical records
securely with doctors, family members or
insurers. Health facilities can update patient’s records every time they
visit by adding relevant medical credentials.
The update is proofed and signed digitally, allowing other parties to verify
its authenticity. All the data is digitally
stored, making it easily accessible and safeguarded from unauthorized
Accessible anywhere anytime
When patients grant health professionals access to specific health
credentials, this data is stored only once. Thus
health professionals can rely on the most up-to-date and accurate records of
patient care. Blockchain provides a way to
ensure that data is complete, up-to-date, and secure.
Complete data ownership
Better medical care
Healthcare processes can be made more efficient by digitization and
automation, lowering costs and reducing the risk of human errors.
Less human errors
Real-time pandemic prevention
Blockchains can be used to analyze real-time health data, which allows
health experts to spot epidemics (and other
public health problems) as and before they happen to respond accordingly.
This accurate data could then be fed into
artificial intelligence systems that could elevate medical research by leaps
Real-time data analysis
Next-gen medical research
Blockchain can reduce patient data sharing risks by limiting what is
accessible. For example, when personal information
such as an ID card is provided by patients for identification, private data
such as name, age and home address is
publicly shared. Digital signatures and verifiable credentials let patients
pass verification with only sets of required
information provided in a digital environment. This is known as
zero-knowledge proof which allows individuals to be
verified without revealing the sensitive information itself. Health experts
can use zero-knowledge proofs to aggregate
fully anonymous data and then be able to analyze it without compromising
Life-long medical record
Blockchains create a secure, easily-shared database that can be used to
store medical records - with all personal information kept private.
