Low-code and blockchain joining forces for ehealth platform transformation


What is the role of blockchain and how can it increase the security of a records management platform from ehealth? This use case follows the collaboration between Plant an App and EhealthServices, a platform helping patients store information about their allergies. 


Challenge

Nathan Botts, CEO of EHealthServices, based in LA, California has been using the DNN platform for a while now to tackle different challenges for his company, but now he was finding himself in need of a new development team to restructure the way information about patients was stored.

In short, EhealthServices was helping clients deal with challenges involving effective sharing of patient information. For this specific project, he was looking for a new way through which record history about patients’ allergies was stored. 


Solution

In terms of communication, while deciding on the best solution to be adopted, Nathan found the discussions with Plant and App development team quite clear. When he came asking for help from Plant an App, he knew exactly what he was looking for in terms of results and how the final result should look like.


How did the process go?

Before getting things started, the main requirement from Health e-Services was the ability to check the origin of the data stored in regards to each patient. More specifically, patients needed to be able to upload their own health record information and to share that with different doctors or specialists they might see, while keeping everything secure and private. 


Plant an App came with the idea of using blockchain for this specific challenge, a solution that met the security requirements. More exactly, by integrating their platform with blockchain created the option for patients to add a lot of specific details about their allergies On the security side, they were assured this kind of information is shared only with their doctors and can be deleted at any given time. In regards to allergies, patients could pull a list from a set of common allergens, share the status of their allergy, the start date, the option to add a file (for eg a photo with a rash). Everything was privately and securely recorded through blockchain as a transaction there.

Results

Private and secure data: blockchain facilitates the privacy of patient-related data. 



Fast development: It took one developer and 20 days for the final solution to go live.
