Burst IQ & Connetix Health Announce first Blockchain-Based Personal Health Record Application
DENVER, CO—BurstIQ and Connetix Health have partnered to create the first blockchain-based personal health record application (PHR). The product suite combines BurstIQ’s blockchain enablement platform and health marketplace with Connetix Health’s next generation PHR technology, mCharts. The partnership enables users to automatically collect and manage health records, while providing absolute control over viewing, sharing, and monetization of their data.
Earlier this year, BurstIQ released its platform SDK and opened its developer community in a private beta program, and Connetix Health is among the first companies to take advantage of its market-leading blockchain ecosystem. Connetix Health’s PHR application, mCharts, enables users to automatically download records from medical providers into BurstIQ’s highly secure big data blockchain, BurstChainTM. Health information is enriched and displayed in easy-to-understand views using a visual body map and scrolling timeline. The mCharts distributed application is a first-of-its kind solution that lets users build and maintain a universal view of health, while enabling sharing and monetization for the specific benefit of the user that owns the data. Using BurstIQ’s standard platform APIs, Connetix was able to integrate the mCharts app onto the platform in under two weeks.
“While there have been numerous efforts to develop personal health records and electronic health records on blockchain, the mCharts application is the first personal health record to be fully deployed on blockchain,” says Frank Ricotta, CEO of BurstIQ. “We’re proud to partner with Connetix to incorporate BurstIQ’s secure blockchain technology into the mCharts solution.”
According to Connetix Health founder and CTO, Kirstan Vandersluis, “BurstChain ensures the security and privacy of the data mCharts collects on behalf of users. It provides a clear chain of custody as a user releases data to providers, caregivers, or researchers. And, for the first time, BurstChain provides a marketplace where users can actually benefit by releasing their data to researchers and others who profit from their data”.
In addition to the integration of mCharts with BurstChain, the companies have announced a co-marketing partnership enabling the companies to market the combined product suite to customers. BurstIQ expects to incorporate mCharts’ advanced visualization of individual health data into upcoming consumer products.
