In situations of violence or neglect, blockchain technology would be ideal since the incident could be traced back to the original time and person/people involved
Fremont, CA : The promise of blockchain in healthcare is vast and mostly untapped. However, there is a more significant opportunity in aged care. Transparency into the safety and well-being of its patients is critical in the senior care industry. Concerns about the care and safety of the elderly in nursing homes have grown, and blockchain can at the very least provide a forum for accountability and assurance.
Families are not often aware of their elderly relatives' backgrounds, whether they are in nursing homes or their own homes. These relatives cannot remember or relay these events with precision in some instances. Families will be able to keep track of their elderly relatives and have peace of mind, knowing that they are safe, thanks to blockchain.
Consumers have a universal appetite for data transparency; however, the lack of data transparency in aged care may be life-threatening. It encompasses more than just bribery, possible miscalculations, or data opacity in supply chains. A lack of data transparency can jeopardize an elderly person's life and health in senior care.
Violence and neglect of the elderly care have gone unchecked for years, with no support. The elderly's health and well-being should be ensured by ongoing, transparent treatment and documentation. Since blockchain is by its very nature permanent and tamper-proof, it is a perfect platform for this. Even a private blockchain may provide the assurance of permanence that a conventional database cannot.
This technology would be ideal in violent or negligent situations since the incident could be traced back to the original time and person/people involved.
The value of blockchain technology in aged care extends beyond its protection. It's all about quality control and the ability of technology to support the elderly. They currently lack a sense of security, which blockchain can provide.
