Frequently asked questions

What is Patientory building and how?

Patientory is a cybersecurity blockchain-based distributed application that provides users access to their health data. Think of us as a bridge that connects siloed, centralized medical and health record keeping systems. We create smart contracts that can be executed in relation to the medical and patient care continuum cycle.

Is Patientory another EMR?

No. Think of us as a bridge that connects siloed, centralized medical and health record keeping systems. Our system aggregates data from EMRs like Epic, Cerner, Allscripts and Meditech and other health related database systems.

Why is Patientory necessary?

There is a growing demand for healthcare cybersecurity solutions and computing power from the health and scientific community to run large applications and process huge volumes of data. Large volumes of patient health information can be supported which can further be utilized by Artificial Intelligence for accurate patient treatment. Patientory provides the following:

What are the details around product updates?

Please refer to patientory.com/roadmap or github.com/patientory for the 2017-2018 roadmap and updates on product development.

What are the details related to the FDA submission and the background history?

Our FDA submission was premature. After beginning the process of submission, we realized that the schema submitted would not be sufficient to move the approval process forward. To conserve capital and time, we withdrew our application. Subsequent internal audits of our roadmap led us to the conclusion that pursuing the FDA in the near term was not the best use of our time. As a result, we reduced the scope of our product release schedule to focus on items that allowed us to not only deliver against the vision articulated in our white paper but also give us the most significant impact. As we continue to make progress, our goal is to revisit the Machine Learning Technology initially intended for FDA submission. This scope reduction and reprioritization of effort are reflected in the latest release of our product roadmap found here –
patientory.com/roadmap or github.com/patientory.

Is Patientory HIPAA compliant?

All healthcare/medical record technology in the U.S. that deals with private healthcare information is required to comply with HIPAA regulations. In addition to our existing efforts, we will continue to consult experienced HIPAA compliance professionals and experts as we sell our technology and market presence in the U.S.

Can you customize the dashboard for various organizations?

Our goal is to provide a system that is both consistent and dynamic. Consistent is the sense of usability, design and user experience. Dynamic in the sense that that usability, design, and expertise will integrate seamlessly with other EMR and healthcare databases implementations through customizable dashboards that meet the needs of the organizations and the patients/customers that they serve.

Is Kaiser still an Equity Holder?

Colorado Permanente Medical Group in conjunction with Boomtown HealthCare Accelerator was an early investor in Patientory, and are affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.

Tech detail

Many of the early challenges developing blockchain proof of concepts (POCs) for the enterprise revolved around two prominent concerns: scaling and privacy. In addition, the limited two-tiered architecture (client/server) presents version control issues and is difficult for in-house IT teams to implement.

With time and a maturation of the technology has come evolution and the use of a middle-tier in blockchain architecture. This has enabled in-house teams to develop application functionality and feature sets using familiar tools and languages. This multilevel framework provides a separation of concerns (middleware) similar to modern web infrastructures. The middle layer allows the platform to interface with existing systems and scale more efficiently off-the-chain. The business logic (smart contracts) flows securely on and off the blockchain.

Similarly, Patientory creates, configures, and query blockchain-enabled smart contracts that leverage both “traditional” cloud middleware and new application services to support blockchain development for nodes on and off the chain. Within this framework, the implementation of modern application services like biometrics and OAuth, real-time data and billing, and personal health insurance information are now possible. Applications can be developed using standard development tools, reducing time-consuming learning curves for onboarding and implementation.

Presentation layer

This is the user touchpoint for accessing their healthcare information in real time. Prescription adherence alerts, wearables data, Explanation of Benefits (EOB), and real-time data can be found here. Hospitals, Clinical Care providers and other enterprise members interface here as well exchanging information securely in the P2P network.

Middleware

Oracles execute in a secure computational environment and have the cryptographic primitives that allow them to work directly with blockchains. On the platform, business logic executes in a fabric that binds the code to a smart contract. Identity and key management, cryptographic, services, attested data and interaction with the outside world run in this secure environment.

Data layer and schema

This third layer serves as a distributed database of the shared truth between nodes on the blockchain. The ledger is an instantiation of a version specific contract between several different parties. Smart contracts are bound by the ledger, schema, counterparties, logic, and external sources. The platform is fully auditable and can serve to automate many healthcare operational processes.
