Introduction to MEDIBLOC

As of now, most hospitals and health care centers around the world use centralized database, which store the patient records. This strictly limit data and information sharing between health care professionals and decrease the opportunity to better care for the patients. Between this we have a LAW like Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which limit the access to sharing of patient information between medical health care workers, doctors and researchers. Consequently, restricting quality medical aid from reaching individuals who are in need.
MEDIBLOC is open source platform work on Ethereum blockchain that makes use of a health care ecosystem. Due to its decentralized nature, it allows communication and interaction between medical experts, researchers and off course patients. MEDIBLOC allow its users to track their medical record regarding their health and doctor visitations.
MEDIBLOC collect all the sensitive information and record of a patients into a single data bank, which then will be shared reliably with medical experts in a private manner. Also, MEDIBLOC makes use of its own system to facilitate record sharing via an incentive based financial model. Reward can be obtained by patients, caregivers. Tokens can also be used for internal transactions like pharmacy charges etc.



MEDIBLOC Overview

☺ Information are maintained by MEDIBLOC on a transparent network
☺ MEDIBLOC has intuitive interface
☺ MEDIBLOC offer a new way for patients to communicate with medical experts
☺ MEDIBLOC has a big market potential for future.



Some Amazing Features in MEDIBLOC

The key aim of MEDIBLOC is to make health care system more accessible to patients via the use of redistributed data ownership system. It actually means that taking back patients information from hospitals to the hands of patients or individuals.
The second key feature of MEDIBLOC is its use of data loss protocol, which ensure that all the sensitive information related to the patients are stored on a decentralized server and is accessible all the times. Its not enough, the important thing of this system is authorization. Only authorized healthcare experts are given access to the blockchain, and hence minimizing the possibility of record tempering and unethical record alteration.



MEDIBLOC will benefit patients and as well as doctors and they will receive incentives in the form of native currency. Furthermore, MEDIBLOC is a cross border system and is not limited by problems of geographical distance. It was just created to facilitate real time data exchange between experts and patients across the world, which will make treatment error free.



How MediBloc Work?


Source

MEDIBLOC is a decentralized DApp working on Ethereum blockchain. Three layers create the overall structure of MEDIBLOC platform, they are:
1. Core
2. Service
3. Application




Layer Structure of MEDIBLOC obtained from Official WhitePaper

Each of these layers is designed to hold vital information and process data as needed. For example, the Core layer is designed to safeguard all of one’s medical information stored within the system. This is done using new encryption protocols which cryptographically lock all records via a private key (which can only be accessed by the patient).

Similarly, the Service layer serves as an intermediary between the App and Core layers. Its coding facilitates seamless data exchange and allows for the execution of smart contracts within the MediBloc ecosystem.

MediBloc's Application layer enables clients to get to different local and outsider applications keeping in mind the end goal to oversee and direct individual information in a simple and compelling way.

Finally, it ought to be noticed that this stage utilizes a Medi Point framework (MP) that naturally tracks client investment and doles out applicable motivating forces and rewards in like manner. The MPs that are obtained can be traded for MED tokens that would then be able to be utilized to make installments and encourage inside exchanges.
