About The BCHIE

Our BCHIE architecture is a HIPAA compliant, advanced, market-driven disruptive technology designed and developed to ensure health information exchange (HIE) security, validity, nonrepudiation, and patient matching by using Smart Contracts that are executed without human interaction.

Developed in 2018, the BCHIE leverages SHA 512 hashing, where the margin of error virtually disappears. Using the  BCHIE, the margin of error is 1 out of 2^256 power. This is the same standard that secures top secret clearance for digital information.

Patient matching is inherent in the BCHIE architecture.

Furthermore, BCHIE architecture provides a platform for advanced data analytics using artificial intelligence (AI) methods.

On June 27, 2019, we submitted our blockchain health information exchange architecture platform to CMS’s 2019 Call for Measures: “Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program Call for Measures[1] seeking to transform nationwide interoperability and health information exchange.

Question: What is the difference between health information exchanges (HIEs) and the BCHIE?

Answer: Current HIE architecture uses 1970’s structured query language (SQL) technology which does not ensure non-repudiation. Using this 1970’s SQL technology as a base for current HIE architecture, processes like release of information, patient matching, privacy, and security, etc., all carry certain inherent risks, vulnerabilities, and margins of error.

Moreover, issues with current HIE’s include patient privacy, data security, data integration, and agreement between competing healthcare providers if a centralized database is used. Blockchain technology addresses these problems effectively.
