Longenesis a health data company, signed an agreement with the leading South Korea hospital Gil Medical Center, aimed to design and integrate a custom blockchain-based health data management solution.
The research goal is to establish a blockchain-based solution, built on Bitfury’s open-source Exonum blockchain framework that will streamline data collection and aggregation, improve medical research processes and enable transparent patient consent management. The solution will also address the specific compliance needs of these patients (including with HIPAA and GDPR regulations), as Gil Medical Center is a leading medical provider for foreigners in South Korea.
The Longenesis health data management solution will enable Gil Medical Center to upload, store and manage the data of individual patients in a secure environment, giving full control of data usage and access back to patients. Gil Medical Center also can better manage consent forms and status for individual researchers, which better facilitate the advancement of clinical trials.
“Gil General Hospital has a splendid reputation for being on the edge of adopting latest innovation. We are honored to mark our Korean presence with a partnership like such,” said Garri Zmudze, CEO of Longenesis.
