Coral Health uses blockchain technology to improve healthcare by providing patients with control of personal medical records by improving efficiency using a streamlined process.
According to Philip Parker, operations lead with Coral Health, patients currently do not have access to their own medical records which results in a healthcare system in which medical care is often based on the fragmented information. The result is an impersonal healthcare system that negatively impacts patient care and the industry.
Coral Health aims to provide aggregate medical information in an efficient manner with complete control by the patient. A single app contains all the patient’s medical history and information in real time. That information is secure and encrypted to ensure privacy and allows the patient to decide which health care provider gains access to what information.
