Iryo is the first participatory, blockchain driven healthcare network built on decentralising access to medical data.
We’re driving the next generation of healthcare by standardising health-data, employing zero-knowledge encryption and powering medical AI & Big Data research.
Medical archetypes keep medical data consistent making it highly valuable to users.
High-level zero-knowledge encryption renders medical data useless to attackers.
Permission access controls enable the secure exchange of sensitive medical data.
We encourage developers to create soltuions that will help scale the network.
An average patient consults 20 or more different healthcare providers in their lifetime. This causes electronic medical records to be inherently fragmented, stored in various formats and scattered across incompatible systems, leaving patients with no consolidated view of their true medical history.
Unified health records, solidified by the adoption of blockchain will enable patients to have secure access and allow them to selectively share their medical history anywhere in the world. OpenEHR archetypes will natually ensure the interoperability of medical records reglardless of location, increasing the quality of care provided.
Robust and easily scalable. We believe Golang is the perfect fit to help build the Iryo Network.
We thrive on collaboration. The Iryo network should scale without our direct involvement.
API’s can be difficult to implement if not documented properly, we use Swagger.
A core value is providing ultimate transparency by publishing Iryo’s codebase on Github.
The healthcare industry accumulates vast quantities of highly valuable medical data every second. Due to the large quantity of individual service providers, each with their own unique data type, data becomes fragmented and quickly loses value for medical research. Iryo removes the silos by building its network on the back of openEHR archetypes. These data types are universally consistent and help drive the next generation of medical AI & big data research.
The use of an openEHR framework prevents medical institutions from reformulating existing data types. Having consistent frameworks across medical institutions allow domain experts (medical researchers and clinical specialists) to accurately define and use specific data points in their practice. This ensures global interoperability and increases the intrinsic value of health data.
With the use of public-key encryption, the Iryo Network gives patients complete control and ownership of their electronic health record. This empowers patients to leverage their own medical data to better suit their healthcare needs.
Zero-knowledge storage protocols will ensure that sensitive medical data will remain secure and completely impervious to cybersecurity breaches, including state-sponsored attacks. All medical data is stored on the patients device and securely backed up on two geographically & managerially redundant storage nodes.
Patients can now choose how they interact with their medical history.
EOS will allow for the creation of an extremely efficient and scalable network. EOS “shards” will enable Iryo to create an extremely dynamic yet super lightweight chain resulting in lightning fast transactions. Sharing vast quantities of medical data between subjects of trust, such as doctors, specialists, and researchers will ultimately be less expensive, less time consuming and yield greater value for patients around the world.
The Iryo Network will usher in a new era for medical research. Patients will now have the ability to anonymously share their medical history with researchers in exchange for Iryo tokens which can then be used to pay for medical services.
Research institutions will have access to vast quantities of highly relevant medical data at their disposal. Specifying medical parameters will decrease traditional expenses associated with acquiring large sets of medical data and enable a new, targeted approach to large scale A.I & Big Data research.
Hospitals & clinics will be able to securely access a patient’s medical history in real-time enabling them to treat patients in ways never before possible. In case of a medical emergency, Iryo enables hospitals & clinics to access personal medical records incase the patient is unresponsive at the time of treatment. This system is based on a token-locking scheme that holds the institutions responsible of any wrongdoing.
