BlockChain for Healthcare equity : Part 1

|

In a digital age where cars drive themselves and CEOs  hold meetings across continents in virtual reality conference rooms, engagement of the disenfranchised is a less attractive endeavor than the sleek apps, making it an outlier in the realm of tech solutions.  In our endeavour to promote digital india it should be our collective effort to bring healthcare to the disenfranchised and to the people who slip out of the cracks. Most of us just don’t bother to take care of the elephant in the room, its time all the stakeholders joined hands and come up with a solution. For me personally Equity is of paramount importance in healthcare.The lack of focus on vulnerable populations in patient safety discounts the significance of the many lives lost, all precious to those who love them. we hav...

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 ‌ ‌ ‌ 

Blockchain Powered Smart Grid Evolution

In economic terms, electricity (both power and energy) is a commodity capable of being bought, sold, and traded. [1] An electricity market is a system enabling purchases and short-term trades, generally in the form of financial or obligation swaps. Bids and offers use supply and demand principles to set the price.  Transactions (bids and offers) in electricity are typically cleared and settled by the “market operator” or a special-purpose independent entity charged exclusively with that function such as an Independent System Operator (ISO).   Let us illustrate the function of a typical ISO like the one in the State of New York in the USA. [2]  It’s mission is to reliably manage New York’s power grid and energy markets consisting of 11,000 circuit miles of transmission lines.  Their members...

Blockchain

|

In simple words, data are contained inside blocks as well as an arbitrary integer that is necessary for producing the proof-of-work. In bitcoin blockchain, the block contains a header and relevant transaction data. A merkle tree of transactions is created and the hash of the root is included in the header. A merkle tree is a full binary tree of a hash values. At the bottom level of the tree, each transaction has a node containing its hash value. After that, the tree is constructed in a way such that the parent node has a value of the hash of the data contained in its children concatenating together. The blockchain is designed in a way such that the average time for a block to be generated remains fairly constant. In the bitcoin blockchain, the average time for a block to generate is 10 min...

Blockchain Powered Smart Contracts for Internet of Things (IoT) Applications

|

Blockchain is far more widely useful than for just cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.  Blockchains create immutable, persistent, and searchable records of events, transactions, contracts, and official documents. If we think beyond the realm of humans interacting with each other and look forward to the new world of autonomous systems interacting with each other, blockchain technology gives us a simple, cost-effective, and permanent record of decisions made and communicated on our behalf. [1] An example of a IoT network is exemplified by the figure above, which illustrates how Internet of Things nodes can be managed by a server or a set of servers. This diagram explains the possible topology of an IoT network. [2] Referring to the figure, part of the management software resides in the Aggrega...
