Blockchain for Elder Care

I  am working on developing a whitepaper for creating a Blockchain ecosystem for Home care/ Elder. Need to connect with peers who are already working towards this and maybe Collaborate.   (By 2030, older persons will outnumber children aged 0-9 years (1.4 billion versus 1.3 billion); by 2050, there will be more people aged 60 years or over than adolescents and youth aged 10-24 years (2.1 billion versus 2.0 billion) – UN.   Source : Hindustan Times 

Disadvantage of Blockchain in Healthcare ?

|

If we want medical records to be accessible anytime anywhere, the patient has to give his permission for third parties (paramedics, doctors, etc) to access them. However, if the patient is unable to verify access (ex: the patient is unconscious), he can pick a representative to do the job instead of him. This creates a security breach since the patient is no longer the only one to decide who has access to all his medical information. This implies that the patient has to check every once in a while who he or his representatives gave access to. How do we circumvent this problem, am i missing anything,

Blockchain Use Case : Crowdfunding for universal healthcare in Emergency

|

What would be the downside for having a blockchain ecosystem where any user could access healthcare by tapping into the resources pooled by anonymous donors. Offcourse all the Stakeholders will have rights and access, but do you think its sustainable when in India we have a huge interoperability problem and most of the big hospitals and healthcare entities work in silos.

Blockchain Smart Contracts Community

|

I would like to see a Community on Blockchain and Smart Contracts  What is your opinion?   I also see a number of posts in this area but not much participation.  I see views but not much in the way of feedback and returning comment on a blog.   As an example, I had a recent blog that had over 1000 views with not one comment! This is how we learn and build our knowledge.   Participation and exchange of ideas.  I am probably also guilty of this.  Yes I am. Cheers, -Dale Montrone ‌ ‌ ‌

But the cryptocurrency isn’t anywhere close to its potential, according to Jeremy Liew, the first investor in Snapchat , and Blockchain CEO and cofounder Peter Smith. In a presentation sent to Business Insider, the duo laid out their case for why it’s reasonable for bitcoin to explode to $500,000 by 2030. Their argument is based on increased interest in bitcoin, thanks to: Bitcoin-based remittancesRemittance transfers, or electronic money transfers to foreign countries, have almost doubled over the past 15 years to 0.76% of GDP, data from The World Bank shows.

How blockchaining Aadhaar can help

|

We have to think of innovative applications of the tech so that it scales up. On the other hand, we have to look at current problems and see which existing technologies can solve them. I am not sure if everyone will agree that blockchain is the best solution for security issues with Aadhaar. Anyone who does not agree with this article which states the following? If Aadhaar was built on a blockchain platform, most of the concerns could be assuaged as the database would be immensely difficult to hack
