The GM Digital Platform, has joined forces with Janeiro Digital and Inrupt who are currently the only vendors at the forefront of new decentralised web technology.
Together we aim to test a Personal Online Data Store so people can hold their health and social care records. They will be able to edit and upload other information so they can use them to improve their health, have more control over their personal health and to manage long-term conditions/outcomes based on self-management of care. It also allows health care professionals to better understand the patient and carers needs.
BBC technology reporter Rory Cellan-Jones says this technology might be the answer to one of the biggest challenges for the NHS: how to give people some control of their medical data while making sure it can be shared with all of the doctors and other healthcare workers who need it.
