IIT Madras researchers develop secure medical data & info system

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras here have developed a secure medical data and information exchange system for use in Android-based smartphones, officials said on Friday.
The 'BlockTrack' application, said to be the first of its kind blockchain-based secure medical data and information exchange system, is currently under field trials, IIT-Madras said in a press release.

The project was signed under the corporate social responsibility initiative of IT giant Infosys last year. "The BlockTrack (application) aims to securely digitise healthcare information systems while ensuring the protection of sensitive personal information and medical records by decentralising the control and ownership of patient data," the release said.
