Empowering users to take control of their data
Since the advent of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), all healthcare organizations have become vigilant in securing patient data. However, despite all the fines, many medical institutions have nevertheless been found guilty of data breaches. To curb data breaches and as data is no longer stored individually by an organization and is stored on cloud servers or managed by a data management company, new rules such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) have been enforced.
GDPR is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states and While GDPR has been around for over two years, the results are staggered as organizations are incapable of securing the data using their outdated security mechanisms. The solution for this problem exists beyond the traditional laws, as fines and hoping for the best is not viable. Blockchain technology is the forerunner in protecting sensitive data by storing it on a secure and impregnable digital ledger.
Blockchain eliminates the possibility of data breaches helping organizations and healthcare institutions and the patients rest easy as their data is secured and kept safely.
Immunify.Life has leveraged the blockchain and with AI designed a game changing solution to transform the health management and data utilization landscape. The platform then also utilizes the power of Big Health Data to serve the global community by offering an equitable and informed deployment of healthcare.
Immunify.Life has developed their transformative and self-sustaining healthcare ecosystem powered by blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence with the purpose of strengthening existing healthcare systems by offering both a proficient and secure way of storing and accessing patient data.
To that end, Immunify.Life has developed The Immunify.Life App and Wallet that acts as a custodial service for all healthcare data and an incentivization platform to catalyse health outcomes. The app is powered by the Immunify.Life system that collects treatment data at an individual level and connects to doctors, patients, pharmacies, and pharmacology using a secure bridge.

The app can be used on a mobile device to provide medical professionals ease of use in real-time. The Immunify.Life app is free to install and offers everyone equal access to encourage its use.
However, Immunify.Life is powered by blockchain technology in more than one way as the blockchain technology not only ensures the security of patient data but also helps in obtaining and recording patient consent before the data is shared with a third party. Furthermore, the app lets users, medical professionals, NGOs, government authorities, regulatory bodies, and institutions to :
