Work description

This work will start with a broad study of how data is shared in the health domain, and of its improvement using blockchain technologies. A prototype will be implemented to evaluate the benefits of using blockchain to help handling ethical issues in the processing and sharing non-public health data in the context of collaborative health research. Ethical issues include data integrity and traceability across the processing pipeline, while preserving privacy. Empirical studies will be used to study and demonstrate the benefits of the proposed approaches.
