In a recent blog post, we explore how blockchain technology and MPC help healthcare. Dr. Kurt Nielsen examines how MPC and blockchain together are imperative to tackling many prevalent issues inherent facing the healthcare industry. Nielsen argues that by implementing infrastructures that will ensure users’ privacy is maintained, data holders in the healthcare industry can improve access to healthcare and in doing so, ensure that all patients are not at risk of having their sensitive data made public.
Nielsen also discusses how Partisia Blockchain’s technology is being developed with the goal of tackling and providing some solutions to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Check out the full blog post here.
