The Future of Decentralized Healthcare: How DeFi will pave the way for a new era of medical services

Patients can share data records with 3rd parties in a time-limited, secure way. Practitioners can make updates to the file, and digitally sign it for verification purposes. Data stored safely with individuals has less of a security risk than data lakes.
The interface for a Health Ledger might look like this: a simple set of options giving you the ability to choose how much or little of your data to share with each appointment.

Zoom+Care’s innovative healthcare model allows patients to book an appointment for same day service right from the app. I’ve used Zoom+Care for many issues that I can’t wait a month to make an appointment for. All of the information is stored in their app, and I can access it easily.
