Peter Woo, the co-founder of the Hong Kong Blockchain Society, said the present Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) could be recorded under Blockchain technology to protect personal privacy.

Since the Electronic Health Record Sharing System opened from 2016, public and private doctors could now share patient records under the system. The system enabled the city’s public sector doctors to view patients’ health records kept by private hospital and clinics and vice versa.

“Blockchain technology was safer than the centralized system because it brought protection to privacy,” Woo said at a weekly assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

“The records would be kept safely under this technology. The Blockchain technology not only ensured the records unmodifiable, long-lasting, credible but also ensured the information would not be edited,” said by Woo.

Blockchain technology is a way for one Internet user used to transfer a unique piece of digital property or information to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe and secure.

However, Woo wondered that those personal data should be owned by whom.

“This voluntary scheme for health care providers was put in place after years of debate over concerns that people’s privacy was at risk, with many questioning the reliability of a private-public partnership,” said by Woo.

“I was still wondering should the personal medical records owned by ourselves or hospitals,” said by Woo.

“The government decided to keep the records by herself but patients have their own rights to decide who could keep the records,” said by Woo.

Woo thought that it was strange for patients to pay money and send an application if they want to get their health records.

“The government should get a common consensus in order to operate the system easily in the future,” said by Woo.

Woo was an executive with over 25 years of extensive international experience in the Information Technology, Internet and Telecommunications sectors. He was the co-founder of the Hong Kong Blockchain Society and the Chief Strategist of eMALI.io.
