MediChain is a Medical Big-Data Platform for storing and linking medical data to eventually harness the power of big data for augmented medical decision-making. The proposed system allows patients to store their own data using blockchain and off-chain in an appropriate geographic domain, and give access to doctors and specialists anywhere, regardless of the payer network or EMR used. MediChain's ethos is to work with existing EMR/EHR companies to provide value both to vendors and patients. Patients, doctors, and hospitals could put data into a compliant cloud which becomes part of the MediChain ecosystem. Researchers and Pharmaceutical companies will be able to access the data as big-data in fully anonymised form. It is monetized by the ability to voluntarily give anonymised access to untampered data to pharmaceutical companies, researchers and insurers.
