IBM announced a new partnership with Hu-manity.co – the developer of the #My31 app, which allows users to receive a title of ownership to their health record data and control whether this data can be listed on the marketplace.
Today, the Hu-manity.co global consent ledger, which records permissions (or lack there of) to the use of someone's data, is built on the IBM Blockchain Platform using Hyperledger Fabric. Moving forward, the two companies will also work with Sovrin.
According to Marie Wieck, the general manager of IBM Blockchain, whilst Hu-manity’s app is currently consumer-facing, the companies plan to roll out an enterprise version to corporations from Q1 2019.
Richie Etwaru, founder and CEO of Hu-manity: “The partnership with IBM enables private blockchain to create a direct relationship between the crude data provider – the human being – and the buyer of the refined data at the end of the supply chain”.
