Guardtime Secures Estonian Health Records

Article content

The Estonian company Guardtime will now secure the health records of Estonian citizens using their blockchain technology. Guardtime will be working in cooperation with the e-Health Authority to use its distributed ledger technology.

Using blockchain technology mitigates internal threats to data, making patient’s information more secure. Estonia continues to be one of the most digitally advanced countries, using blockchain technology to keep citizen’s data safe is another example of the country’s forward thinking.

“Every update to healthcare records and every access to healthcare records is registered in the blockchain. That makes it impossible for the government or doctors or anyone to cover up any changes to healthcare records and that’s really powerful,” says Gault.
