BlackBerry Announces Blockchain Solution for Medical Research

BlackBerry Limited  announced today that it will be using its renowned carrier-grade network operation center (NOC) to power a blockchain digital ledger, provided by ONEBIO, to create an ultra-secure global ecosystem for the storing and sharing of medical data. For example, data could be inputted by patients, laboratories, and IoT biometric devices, and then anonymized so this data can be shared with researchers.

BlackBerry is offering this new secure blockchain solution for the first time to the Global Commission, an organization focused on ending the diagnostic odyssey for children with a rare disease. 

Co-chaired by Shire, the leading global biotech focused on rare diseases, one of the Global Commission's technology pilots will explore how BlackBerry's new solution might provide real-time, actionable analysis as the Commission seeks to use technology to shorten the time to diagnosis.
