AMCHART – a patient driven EMR on a public/private blockchain

AMCHART is a patient driven EMR on a public/private blockchain with AI for analytics and incentive driven model for better outcomes. The incentive driven model is based on maintenance of health records, wellness program participation, population health, and data sharing with certified partners for analytics and proactive healthcare management. The consensus security is based on Intel SGX chips and running the consensus directly on hardware not only provides extra security but also accelerate transaction times and stabilizes their ability to decentralize the medical record appropriately. AMCHART will be utilizing Ethereum based Smart Contracts and a Hyperledger Sawtooth framework to create a secure pathway to access patient data for both patients and providers.

HOW DID AMCHART BEGIN?

During his time in a multidisciplinary practice, Aman Quadri, PT, DPT, Cert. MDT and CEO of AMSYS Blockchain noted long wait times for records to see a patient for therapy and physician partners would have to perform new patient evaluations since up-to-date records were either unavailable or incomplete.

This set off an opportunity for this practice to create a Record Keeping System in house, but was confined only to their private clinic and information sharing was not possible with other legacy systems.   Also, as other information arrived from other practitioners either through digital or paper forms, a small staff was needed to place those records into the system.

AMCHART GOAL

 Because value based services will be the new norm for providers and how they will be reimbursed, it will be imperative to create a simple, secure, easily adaptable record that can be accessed by any provider through the blockchain.  The goal for AMCHART will start with an initial intake record (a universal intake form) that can be used by all.  They will be focusing their efforts on the United States healthcare market and then expand as needed to other countries/regions.  Some of the important information required for each patient will be:

  • Initial intake
  • Family/Personal History
  • Allergies/Medications
  • Social History
  • Current providers
  • Past Medical History
  • Imaging
  • Diagnostic test results
  • Any other testing
  • HIPAA disclaimers

POTENTIAL MEMBERS OF A CONSORTIUM:

Most of the functionality in the blockchain will be related to securing the record of a transaction, maintaining the immutability of the smart contracts, and to gather data for wellness/healthcare management. In technical terms, which will be discussed later, Intel SGX provides areas of execution called enclaves that protect sensitive code and data. So, although they are securing the record of a transaction off-chain, the enclaves also allow the transactions to happen in a secure region.

DELINEATION OF TOKEN DISTRIBUTION:

 Based on the monies raised throughout their token sale, AMCHART organization will delineate tokens as follows:

  • 10% – legal, accounting, financial audit, development of interfaces, website, marketing, promotion, staffing, bug bounty programs
  • 10% – utilized for patient/provider/payor incentive programs
  • 50% – development of current AMCHART initiative and future improvements. They would also utilize funds as needed to enhance the token, develop other blockchain initiatives to improve security and compliance issues, and to maintain the ecosystem
  • 20% – continued development of token sale, maintenance of server architecture, nodes, mining pool creation, and code algorithm.
  • 10% – held in reserve for unforeseen issues related to development
