With a COVID-19 vaccine being rolled out and testing becoming more widespread, businesses are contemplating what a return to work might look like. Already having weathered multiple challenges, organizations must now evolve once more and incorporate testing and vaccines into their business continuity strategies.
It’s becoming more tangible that individuals will be required to present their health status on entering work, public places and transportation and the idea of a ‘digital health passport’ is emerging as an appropriate technology solution.
However, it will be the organizations’ responsibility to design its own rules on health status depending on the nature of their business, as well as creating and distributing verifiable healthcare credentials. Plus, all this must be achieved while ensuring data security is at the highest level.
An answer to the increased urgency to solve digital healthcare challenges, blockchain is being proclaimed a key technology in determining healthcare status, including supporting data sharing and transparency while ensuring privacy.
