Blockchain Health Passports Now in Singapore

Singapore proceeds to use blockchain in its public administration.

In a pandemic period of unprecedented health data collecting and monitoring, Singapore is using blockchain technology for the infrastructure that can start it.

According to the news on Sept. 30, government-owned investment firm SGInnovate and Singaporean startup Accredify have together produced a new blockchain-powered digital health passport.

Development work on the form, which enables personal medical data to be collected in a blockchain-secured digital wallet, was launched in May. 

An effective pilot in July revealed that the app was competent in handling and verifying digitized healthcare records — involving COVID-19 discharge memos, immunity proof, swab results, and vaccination records — more than 1.5 million times.

The health passport application was presented for the pilot as a new feature in the Singapore Manpower Ministry's FWMOMCARE app. The latter is a mobile application that was started in May to ease monitor and report migrant workers’ regular health situations during the pandemic.

SGInnovate is financed by Singapore’s Ministry of Finance and has a track history of commitment with the blockchain space. 

The application has been made on the Open Attestation platform which is an open-sourced frame for notarising documents using the blockchain and it is produced by the Singapore government's CIO office, GovTech. 

Simon Gordn who is the SGInnovate’s deputy director of venture building has stated that “as the pandemic tested Singapore's healthcare sector, we identified a gap in the large-scale management of medical records.” “We wanted to quickly build a solution that enables a trusted authentication process,” he continued.

In a common announcement, SGInnovate and Accredigy have told that the app will eliminate reliance on paper-based documents, which may disappear or tampered with. SGInnovate told:

"Digital Health Passport leverages blockchain technology to generate tamper-proof cryptographic protections for each medical document. Users can automatically verify the digital records via a mobile app and present it to officials via QR code, for a quick and seamless verification process." 

The firm marked the key benefits of blockchain technology in the area of healthcare data, insofar as it grants better transparency, safety, and privacy for handling delicate documents.

As earlier described, many businesses and corporations worldwide have been searching blockchain solutions for digital health passports and digital identity administration as they attempt to start up their economies through the pandemic.
