Consumers are more inclined to permit sharing of their unidentifiable information if (a) they are fully aware of how their data is being used; and (b) the usage of such data directly provides them with actionable and sufficient value in return, in this case being improved health management and the potential to earn rewards. Handling of consumer data and profiles is extremely important.
Unidentifiable profile data shall be stored, managed, and secured in a fragmentation manner using enterprise-level security measures in distributed databases. This data can be anonymously linked, consolidated, and tracked by blockchain transaction hash association, which allows us to facilitate the Kinect Network ecosystem without needing to have identifiable information.
The Kinect platform will be managed according to HIPAA rules. The Security Rule requires that covered entities maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for protecting electronic protected health information (e-PHI).
Entities covered by HIPPA must:
Ensure Confidentiality, integrity and availability of all e-PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit; Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats against security or information integrity; Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures; and Ensure compliance by their workforce.
