Such low efficiency and transparency is a great waste of social resources. Enhancing sharing and inter-operatbility of medical is critical to the application of medical data. But how to protect patients’ safety and privacy is a very difficult problem.

Medical data created by various parties are synchronized and shared in real-time. The BaaS platform developed by YuphanChain and Inspur is targeting to improve efficiency and transparency of the medical industry through blockchain technology.
