Safety and rewards both have essential places in the current work. It is the age of technology, and so more and more businesses are availing the blockchain platform to add a layer to themselves. The same is happening with healthcare which is a crucial part of the society and will be at certain times. Without adequate technology, healthcare cannot progress, and it cannot possibly accept everyone into its sphere.

A blockchain platform can transform it into a wholesome one where everything from payments to bookkeeping to patient-doctor interaction can happen smoothly. Already, a lot of the healthcare industry has been thinking about moving in such a direction.

With a start-up such as Healthereum LLC, this becomes a reality for the healthcare industry. Apart from keeping the complete data safe, it also acts as the platform which can fill the gap between a patient and their healthcare provides, a patient engagement platform. The start-up focuses on patient incentives for fulfilling tasks requested by one’s doctor. Rewards are always a great way to motivate people. So, the rewards that one gets can be used to gather more patient data which is needed to better one at providing excellent healthcare. The platform is a global blockchain, and the reward that one gets is in the form of HEALTH tokens.

The reward works as such that the patients will want to get rewards and for that they will need to: meet their appointments at the right time, fill out surveys, and engage with other healthcare tasks. Along with that, the doctors are connected to the patients even after they have left the clinic. Through the blockchain platform, the doctors can send messages to their patients and vice versa. The patient interface is known as HELIO or Healthereum Life Portfolio. And for healthcare providers, it is called HELIO[S] or HELIO Syndicate. The provider can send rewards to the patients once they complete the specified tasks. They can use the rewards in return of healthcare benefits from the providers whenever they need it. It creates a cycle of tokens between the healthcare providers and the patients.

Who will be the participants in Healthereum?

As the blockchain is related to health, it is evident that it wouldn’t be just a doctor and patient platform. There will be several other participants who become a part of this global healthcare blockchain. Some of them include the individual who is signing up for the platform as a patient, the provider who is trying to help people who need their help, the hospitals who are in partnership with the doctors so that they can approve them and also help them, corporations, the government, and the insurers all are participants. Everyone has equal parts to play in the platform which will provide it the wholesomeness that it needs to perform well.

What about Security Tokens?

To make the Healthereum platform a reality people need to invest in the idea. So, what is the surety that their investment will become a success? To answer this question, security tokens are significant for such services. Healthereum does have security tokens which are like an added layer of trust just like it happens in the stock market. Their security tokens are known as HLTH, and they are different from the utility tokens distributed in the platform. HLTH represents a unit ownership of Healthereum. Even a country like the US has made it mandatory to prevent ICO fraud.

This idea will be beneficial for the provider as well as for the investors. In all, Healthereum strives to eradicate the inconsistencies present in the healthcare field and sores to make it a better place for everyone. The blockchain platform can be the next big step that healthcare currently needs.

Passing the test with flying colors: Securing employee accreditation through Blockchain

Passing the test with flying colors: Securing employee accreditation through Blockchain

In today’s fast-paced world, businesses need to ensure their employees are well versed in relevant technology, regulations, and practices. Top-notch training programs are vital for keeping employees up to date and at the top of their game. But unfortunately, current certification methods aren’t airtight.

Online certificates for successful completion of education programs are often issued on PDFs, which extremely vulnerable to falsification, theft, and duplication. 

And that means company leadership and customers can’t always be certain team members have completed all necessary training and received the proper accreditation.

Luckily, all this is about to change thanks to ERC721 tokens and recent developments in blockchain infrastructure. As an example case study, E-learning provider Lawpilots is collaborating with a blockchain infrastructure firm Lition to finally deliver secure employee accreditation certificates.

By deploying ERC721 token certificates, education programs can kiss vulnerable PDF certificates goodbye forever. By storing certificates on a private blockchain, documents are able to be secured and made available to relevant parties without putting the certification’s authenticity at risk.

However, not all blockchain platforms are created equal, and any platform up to the task must be able to secure certificate on the chain while allowing the data to be deleted when it is no longer relevant.

Let’s take a glimpse into the future of document sharing and security.  

In this kind of system, when a user completes a training module and receives their certificate, they can then upload the certificate to a private sidechain on the network, securing the record. 

The certificates could then be shared upon request with relevant individuals or organizations to prove that the user passed the course. Counter-parties could easily connect to the private sidechains to inspect documents, with access limited to specific time frames or the maximum number of clicks if necessary. 

Many certifications expire after a set period of time, requiring the user to partake in further training. While most blockchain networks are immutable, and therefore would leave expired records in the system, a deletable blockchain infrastructure could be set up to automatically destroy certificates after they are no longer valid. 

Deletability would also give users control over their personal data while guaranteeing enterprises that their systems are GDPR compliant.  

Lawpilots chose to work with Lition precisely because of their novel public-private deletable blockchain infrastructure, which allows enterprises to take advantage of an uncompromising blockchain network and delete data when necessary.

Through this kind of architecture, education companies and their clients could guarantee their employees receive and are up to date on the latest training, helping their businesses run smoothly and protecting themselves from legal vulnerabilities.

The implications of this technology cover countless industries. Nearly every type of business needs to be able to eliminate counterfeiting and provide document security.

Think of all the sensitive information we pass around on PDF that can be easily tampered with or duplicated. Transcripts, university degrees, bank statements, real estate records, healthcare information.

 The list goes on! Isn’t it about time the world doubled down on document security and stopped relying on PDFs that are clumsy, easily doctored and insecure?
