A third-year student of Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, Sidharth Ramesh has developed a blockchain-powered storage prototype for medical record purposes. Sidharth explained that blockchain technology could increase data transparency as “there is a possibility of data leaks and unauthorized access to private medical data. A hospital can manipulate patient information or even sell it to private profit-making bodies.”
