Currently, it takes a very long time to transfer a patient’s data and medical history from one healthcare provider to another. This can be especially problematic in emergency situations, where a patient requires immediate medical attention. If a patient owns their medical data, why shouldn’t it follow them everywhere?
What it does
Our product stores patient data on a blockchain ledger, accessible by healthcare providers and emergency responders through an app that allows them to scan patient IDs and receive medical data as a result.
How we built it
We built our product using Ethereum, Java, React, and android studio.
Challenges we ran into
The most challenging aspect of our project was the business model. The healthcare industry is vast and extremely complicated, and in order for any product to work, many parties must be not only compliant, but properly incentivized.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of having met all of our goals by the end of the weekend, as well as achieving impressive results as a team.
What we learned
We have all become more aware of the problems faced by the healthcare industry, and the difficulty involved in solving them. We have also learned about the applications of current technology, such as blockchain and AI, in the healthcare industry.
What's next for CheetahChain
We believe that CheetahChain has the potential to help make the healthcare industry more efficient. The next steps to bringing the product to market is approaching healthcare providers to get a sense of how willing they would be to engage the product.
