Smart Contracts and Data Privacy in the Wake of COVID-19
Posted by Corey Todaro on Aug 27, 2020 2:21:31 PM

New Digital Asset-led webinar to address data privacy challenges in healthcare

August 27

As the healthcare lead for Digital Asset, I spend a significant portion of my time on issues of privacy. Healthcare and Life Sciences handle incredibly sensitive and personal health information. Any data system that holds or processes Protected Health Information (PHI) must make efforts to secure that information. My work in healthcare is just a subset of a larger, and longer running, discussion on privacy preserving techniques on distributed ledger and blockchain systems, for example complex technologies like zero-knowledge proofs. However, instead of talking about advanced cryptography, I want to briefly explore Digital Asset’s approach to building systems compliant with major healthcare data protection regulations like HIPAA and GDPR.

It’s important to note that “compliance” to these regulations is complicated. Compliance includes that the overall architecture, execution and on-going operation of a healthcare solution. It makes no sense to ask whether smart contracts, such as DAML, or any other individual solution component, is HIPAA compliant. Instead, let’s explore the options and tools that Digital Asset provides for solution designers and operators to meet their compliance obligations.

Below is a video I created explaining how enterprises can build compliant distributed ledger solutions using DAML. Check it out

 

Join in the discussion on September 2nd at Noon ET 

Join me on Wednesday, September 2nd at Noon ET with Trinsic and Rethink Ledgers for a live demo and discussion about a DAML-driven app that was built to streamline the COVID-19 testing process, while retaining data privacy and with verified credentials. 

I expect a lively discussion about tracking diagnostic testing results and patterns, enabling verified credentials and planning appropriate response capacity, future vaccine distribution, and personal protective equipment (PPE) procurement. Plus, the role of blockchain technology; what's better a centralized approach or a smart contracts-based solution? 

Reserve your spot today!
