Smart-Contract is the keyI think the biggest opportunity is focused on creative ways to use the smart-contract. Smart-contracts can exist elsewhere, indeed our FHIR Consent and OAuth (UMA) are two examples of smart-contracts.
- Upfront payment for the access (some micro-payment)
- Requirement for escrow of coin to be unlocked to the Patient if other terms are violated
- Terms of protection of the data
- Kind of clinical trial allowed (heart conditions, but not brain)
- Agreement to keep all research public
- Agreement to contact patient if the patient could benefit from new treatment detected
- Agreement to contact patient if some treatable medical condition not previously known is discovered
- Agreement to not contact patient if terminal condition is detected
