Documents on the blockchain thanks to Transcrypts: from the hunt for fraudulent CVs to medical records
Transcrypts is taking its first steps in the medical world through this partnership with Médecins sans frontières. The Health Insurance Portability and Liability Act and other legal provisions previously did not allow blockchain to be used to store medical records in the United States.
Transcrypts did its first steps in the field of human resources management as a tool to fight against fraud in CVs. She then moved on to verifying income for homeowners. The company today describes itself as a complete documentation service using the blockchain.
Transcrypts is not the only player to have embarked on this project to store vaccination data on the blockchain. VeChain (VET) was also used to store part of the vaccination passport of residents of the Republic of San Marino.
