The world has since been stirred up by the wind of blockchain possibilities seen in fintech; records and data analysis and also recently in politics. But can we see thesame possibilities in healthcare for the poor in Africa?

Of cos it possible.  But I think the government of African countries need to adopt the Blockchain technology for it to be extended to the poor people in Africa. I believe Blockchain will change the world.

securing the data, yes
EG makes it harder for trump to fake his medical records after slurring his voice because the data is locked once a diagnoses is made.
it also ensures that although patients dont need to be part of validating every other patients record. each hospital/clinic validates each others hospital/clinic records and has access to the data without a single central server. thus reducing costs of IT security, server maintenance, backups etc

EG
imagine there were 65536 different medical conditions the data on a ledger does not need to list all 65536 per patient with a value. but just the conditions a patient has and the result.

the data needed:
an ID of a condition can be stored as just(at very minimum) 2 bytes (256*256=65536)
so diabetes could be in hex(4hex=2byte)  D1ABE7E5
and the value, could be the numberic value of their glucose level which would take 1byte(diabetic range of 0 to 256)
so patients "conditions" could be logged and locked using just 3 bytes of data.

the only lengthy part is their patient ID which can be locked to a separate ledger using just 4bytes per country (256*256*256*256=4,294,967,296 patients)  or 5byte for a international network (1,099,511,627,776 patients)
so as people are diagnosed it could log patient and medical condition using under 10 bytes per diagnoses

so imagine a 1billion population country, and each (exaggurating) patient having 10 diagnosed conditions (10bill records)
100billion bytes of data = 100mill kbyte = 100,000mbyte  =100gb
which is this


the separate ledger of patient/doctor identity can be shrunk down to being a 5 byte(10hex) ID pegged to a public key thus stored as 40bytes(i rounded)
again a country of 1 billion people
40bill bytes of ID data=40mill kbyte= 40,000mbyte = 40gb
thus only needing a 64mb microsd card to hold all the ID data of that country

so each 'node' in each clinic/hosiptal does not need servers or extremely large hard drives.

just remember. the entire population of records and ID's and repeat tests do not need to belong on one ledger all with individual signatures.
EG bitcoin actually has 2 ledgers. 1x the blockchain 1x UTXO set
so although the blockchain has all the data, the UTXO has no signatures and does not hold the 'used'(spent) data.
so when designing the medical network do not think the ultimate medical chain has to be every patient with their full public key and every medical test and signature. (still neding less than 1tb of storage if you went to extremes)
you could have 3-4 chains/ledgers that different nodes validate. and then the majority of nodes only house and validate/view the latest/active data(utxo)

in short
storing and auditing records only needs nodes of upto in 128mb microsd cards which is cost efficient

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

Blockchain technology is not widely adopted in Africa so its application in medicine will take some time

I think Africa started to develop some blockchain already. It not about healthcare but i think the time will come and it will help the needy in Africa

Yes, I completely agree with your opinion on this project. African government needs to adopt blockchain technology to make the country more digital. With the help of block chain technology the country will take revolution in African medical sector. As well they can easily provide all the medicines to everyone as per their needs after adopting the blockchain technology.

It will take a time for make blockchain to help Africa,Because Governments & it's politicians always push back these types of advantages that can get good future for poor peoples. Hope world can give some support to these poor peoples & blockchain can make good future for all.

The problems with medicine in poor countries is the sheer number of counterfeit drugs which cause even more damage than the illness. Take a look at "farmatrust" which solves this problem via blockchain technology. I think the ICO is still ongoing if you wish to invest and make a fast buck

I strongly agree with your thoughts on this. Africa needs to win her fight against corruption to enable the idea of blockchain have it's full use. The blockchain technology promises transparency in it's use. This will limit the corrupt practices in all spheres of administration. The African leaders know this truth and they are not ready to give up their greed. I hope they speedily adopt it's use as the rest of the world are doing. Blockchain is the way!

Yes, there are actually quite a few blockchain businesses set up already, lots of fiance related like paying bills but from memory none of them was related to healthcare. But it will come with time

Blockchain application to medicine is essential not only in Africa but the whole world. Verifying authenticity of drugs,research into new discovery and data can be employed on the block chain for efficiency

They will need the funding, I think. But yes, blockchain can be a really big help in medicine, particularly in healthcare. Because the technology allows for having
a distributed database for information. And this means medical records will have increased accessibility, accuracy and safety.  I think it's just a matter of time, funding and government assistance for this to happen. But since the technology along with the concept of virtual currency is rapidly gaining attention. The world will adapt to this really beneficial technology.
I totally agree with your thought on this!

Of course, it is conceivable. In any case, I think the administration of African nations needs to receive the Blockchain innovation for it to be reached out to the needy individuals in Africa. I trust Blockchain will change the world. Actually blockchain has the capability now the rest depends on the African government.

Blokcchain technology application to medicine and healthcare in Africa is in progress. I came across  a project that used blockchain applications to verify the authenticity of a drugs by scanning a barcode. I think in the future we will see more advance applications which will be beneficial to the poor.

It's not the blockchain evolution that is what they're fighting against, it's its application in cryptocurrencies as a means of exchange. There are many projects that are going on in the background.
