Use of Smart Contracts in Healthcare Pharmaceuticals
In the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, there are three areas where blockchain technology will be tested first of all, and where its application looks promising.
How Smart Contract Work in Medicine?
Smart contract consist of a self-fulfilling contract in which the terms between the buyer and seller are existed in the form of code. The program automatically monitors compliance with the terms of the contract and completely removes the need for intermediaries.
Thus, a smart contract is an ordinary agreement, the conclusion and control of the implementation of which takes place in a technical rather than legal way.The terms of the contract are pre-programmed, so the administrative burden and cost are reduced.
All users have access to data, and their change is carried out through transactions.In the blockchain, smart contracts perform the function of data manipulation. Each smart contract has its own small database, and also provides ways to change data.
The use of smart contracts in medicine will solve the following problems:
Replacing and issuing false prescriptions for medicines, as well as certificates based on smart contracts, is completely excluded.
Based on the available information, a smart contract can seek and offer more optimal treatment options for patients.
A smart contract can help monitor compliance with prescribed treatment, medication, tests, and the like.
If information is stored on a blockchain that everyone trusts, most of the process can be automated. As soon as the entries fall into the chain, the smart contract checks whether all conditions are met and makes a payment.
Thus, the implementation and implementation of blockchain technology and smart contracts is relevant and necessary, allowing you to solve many problems related to safety and quality of service in the healthcare sector.
Where are Smart Contracts Concluded?
Smart contracts can be used in several systems based on blockchain technology. Such systems include:
2. Side Chains.
One of the key technologies in the world of blockchain, which opens up great opportunities, is the Ethereum platform. It is currently the only platform where smart contracts have the greatest potential. Ethereum is a blockchain-based open source distributed platform. Cost reduction with Ethereum is possible due to savings in commissions, administrative expenses and other bank expenses.
Smart contracts on the Ethereum platform determine what data to store in the registry and what functions are needed to carry out operations on this data.All data changes occur through transactions that require the presence of such components as the sender of the transaction, its recipient, as well as the amount of currency sent.
In order to complete transactions, first of all, the internal currency of the Ethereum platform is required, namely ether (ETH). Ethereum platform has all the necessary tools for developing smart contracts of different levels of complexity.
Thus, smart contracts in medicine have great prospects, especially in areas such as the supply chain of medical products, patient data storage and insurance.
They have a high level of security, which is provided in them not by trust in a third party or in the reputation of the other party to the contract, but by the mathematical laws on which the entire blockchain technology is based.
