The Bitfury Group and Longenesis announced a partnership with Medical Diagnostics Web to bring some of the implementations in blockchain technology to MDW’s radiology marketplace.

The partnership will create a next-generation platform for maintaining, sharing and securing medical imaging and diagnostics data.

Deployment of this blockchain infrastructure is expected to set new industry standards for healthcare blockchain implementation.

MDW is the first radiology blockchain platform designed to connect all players in the medical imaging ecosystem to create an open and transparent marketplace for image interpretation. It allows radiologists to contract with imaging facilities and securely share patient data and medical images such as X-rays, CT scans for interpretation.

The combination of new technologies, built on Bitfury’s Exonum private blockchain framework, will take the security of sensitive medical information to the next level. It will provide users with a more robust and discrete environment, while allowing transactions to be validated by nodes installed at a variety of respected sites, using “anchoring” technology to increase trust in recorded transactions.

Longenesis’ data management practices will ensure that medical data, while recorded transparently via blockchain, is accessible only by authorized parties in full compliance with HIPAA, GDPR and “right to forget.”
