With recurring infections, variants, and inoculation efforts, many new words have been introduced in our day-to-day vocabulary. Quite a few of those words have not been used by the general public for over 100 years.

The COVID-19 pandemic has stretched itself for almost two years with no end in sight. From affluent countries in the West to poor developing countries in Africa and Asia, every country has struggled, mostly fruitlessly, for containment of the virus within their borders. The world governments have cooperated in a worldwide effort to quell this stubborn viral epidemic from infecting and killing people in wave after wave of variants.

Like land records and their provenance, blockchain’s distributed ledger technology (DLT) is also ideal for tracking human vaccination records accurately.

Dr. Tom Frieden, former head of the Center for Disease Control, has voiced serious reservations for the safety of the pandemic vaccination records and has stated clear reasons why it is not safe. Including these are:

  • Accuracy should be maintained by utilizing a computerized immunization information system, i.e., an online record of vaccinations received by people.
  • Proper assurances and safeguards must be implemented to ensure everyone’s personal data security and privacy.
  • For unforeseen circumstances, options to use other forms of identity should also be allowed. For instance, having the ability to use paper vaccination records with additional personal verification, such as a photo ID.
  • The system must only verify vaccination records and avoid adding information about previous tests and results to prevent clustering data.
  • And must be accessible in real-time, “such as when people are going through airport security.”

Blockchain DLT, especially the 5ire’s 5ireChain solutions, is a perfect fit for resolving all the above issues and more.

A 5ireChain based solution can enable some or all of the following use cases:

  • Traceability of proof of records like vaccinations, lab results, etc.
  • Interoperability within various healthcare systems
  • Elimination of redundant onboarding procedures and tests
  • Digital prescriptions that can quickly screen for potential adverse reactions
  • More personalized healthcare with better outcomes
  • Citizens taking ownership of their health data and volunteering it or selling it for research
  • Incentives for citizens to make defined positive health-related choices
  • Automated payments for healthcare providers and vendors

The 5ireChain based solution will provide:

  • All parties store and access data on a 5ireChain-distributed permissioned ledger providing real-time visibility, improved data quality, and reduced costs. The blockchain creates a hash of digital identity to track who’s accessing what data and creates a secure, confidential audit trail.
  • Our permissioned blockchain will use homomorphic encryption, which enables us to perform computation on sensitive data like healthcare records in the encrypted format. The use of homomorphic encryption is a relatively new method of storing encrypted data safely on the other nodes without providing them with the decryption keys.
  • Disparate adjudication engines are replaced with a trusted, real-time, and immutable blockchain-based solution that connects all shared accumulators and makes the correct benefits data accessible to the appropriate party at the right time.
  • Patient consent forms are digitized, and information is stored on the blockchain in an encrypted system that provides trust, security, and permissioned access. This creates an environment where patients consent regarding which information on their health records to share. Patients’ interests (e.g., relevant clinical trials) are easily accessible to appropriate parties.

In essence, a custom-tailored full-scale solution and more. 5ire and 5ireChain are ideal for resolving the most complicated and corrupt healthcare and vaccination efforts.
