Great idea, but how the privacy side will work? In order to send medical updates/records to patients, the app must know some very private/specifical information about the user. How we can get past that?

I’d say a good place to start is looking at current medical apps and see how they operate. They already store sensitive patient data, including SSN’s, I’m assuming in a secure way. Anything that contains health data must be compliant with HIPAA regulations.

The interesting part to me is could a blockchain-based app become HIPAA compliant? I imagine it would take some coordinating/lobbying with that govt agency to gain the seal of approval. DGB + Digi-ID is already highly secure, this could be a good way to put it to the test!
