La santé sur la blockchain: quels sont les avantages de l'Inde
For a country such as India, with a population of 1.3 billion, it is essential to maintain the efficiency of public systems. This also applies to health care
By 2030, the Indian authorities hope to provide 100% of the population with health care by offering them equality of access and care. Alas, despite the measures taken, it has not been possible to implement this so far.
India has a high percentage of rural population and poorly qualified staff. It is difficult to reach remote areas. However, the authorities are not discouraged, but continue to modernize health care.
Innovations and new technologies are being introduced in the country. It is not surprising that the government's attention was attracted by the possibilities of blockchain. It can make it easier to obtain and pay for medical services, control prescriptions and release drugs.
Blockchain will optimize the interaction between doctors and patients. It will preserve and provide at any time access to personal data of patients, and will make it easier and more liquid online consultation. This will improve the quality of care.
That is why further development of India's health care, according to some analysts, is possible only with the use of new technologies. Including telemedicine and blockchain. In part, the government was able to track the validity of this conclusion in 2020, against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Telemedicine helped to help those who wanted it. Practitioners from large medical centres interviewed patients from remote areas, prescribed examinations and treatment. However, without blockchain, this technology is imperfect.
DLT technology will provide the necessary transparency and clarity of medical records, and will establish correct reporting. This will help to avoid the confusion that exists in the medical sector.
Health care providers cannot communicate data safely and confidentially. This leads to frequent duplication of medical information, additional costs and clutter.
Blockchain will help to collect all the data in a single network. A health care professional will be able to access the patient's data in a matter of seconds if given permission.
By introducing electronic settlements and cryptocurrency payment for goods and services, it will be possible to control costs, prevent prescription abuse and reduce the risk of fraud. This is the opinion of independent analysts.
