Blockchain technology addresses the trade-off between personalized care and operational costs by connecting the ecosystem to universal infrastructure. Shared infrastructure allows us to create global standards without compromising privacy and security.
Blockchain networks require building an inclusive ecosystem of connected companies and technologies. We’re partnering with industry leaders to take an industry-driven approach to application and infrastructure development.
Gem’s first partner in healthcare is Philips. Together we’re exploring how blockchain technology can support a patient centric approach to healthcare.
We partner with industry leaders to identify problems they want to solve for their network, and then we spin out a federated blockchain to support the pilot running on GemOS.
Limited capacity for partners and projects per pilot.

If there is already a market and a trusted intermediary, there isn’t as much to be gained by creating a network that looks exactly the same but with replacing the intermediary, as the intermediary often does more than just pass data. However, there isn’t a clear intermediary in all circumstances that would benefit from one. These circumstances tend to include peer to peer transactions where all the participants do not 100% trust each other, for instance, in trade finance. This creates a marketplace like mechanism, without the need for an intermediary while requiring a high level of trust. Implementing a blockchain in this model is then much cheaper, faster and less cumbersome than setting up a new intermediary.

This inadequacy has sparked questions about the potential role of blockchain technology as a digital record-keeping system, all with the hopes of accelerating the progress of electronic medical records (EMR) innovation.
