Meeting Notes


  • Timeline for a product 3-5 years
  • We need to be keeping meeting notes so we can keep up when we can’t attend
  • Think through whether to get into a use case now or whether to create a framework for use cases
    • Three good use cases to focus on
    • Need to work on whitepaper
  • Tony Little Optim working on provider solution for credential - use case the farthest along
  • When is blockchain effective? A paper on the conditions where blockchain is useful would be very good
  • Eligibility for Medicaid, we had to figure out a way to change eligibility on a daily basis, complex problem
  • posting all vital signs to the blockchain and figured out that was not useful, we only needed to post outlying vitals to the blockchain
  • Is blockchain HIPAA compliant? Can we store any patient information in the hyperledger blockchain without getting into trouble?
  • That’s why we should start with a whitepaper so we understand the landscape
    • Inform us and the audience as marketing
    • Identify one or two use cases we could run with
  • VA is going to let vets start seeing doctors outside the VA, that’s a use case that’s manageable. Self contained. It’s a lot of people with identifiers and a lot of moving parts, but they all have identifiers that are well defined. Blockchain between enterprises.
