HIPAA BLOCKCHAIN COMPLIANCE CONSULTING

Exciting new developments in blockchain technologies have resulted in unique security challenges for decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts in the healthcare industry. DApps that handle Protected Health Information and share patient data with doctors, business associates, Contact Us button on Blockchain page update margins for Mobile buttonor insurance companies are required to have proof of HIPAA compliance.

HOW BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY WORKS

Decentralized applications (DApps) are “blockchain enabled” websites that use smart contracts as a way to interact with a blockchain. Attackers may find ways to force smart contracts to behave in unexpected ways leaving data vulnerable and exposed. Smart contracts are designed and developed using a programming language called Solidity that runs on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Solidity is designed around ECMAScript syntax but also has a particular set of quirks and known potential issues that developers need to be aware of. When coding with Solidity there are architectural and design approaches that can be implemented to mitigate risk.

BLOCKCHAIN VULNERABILITIES

All the traditional rules for system security apply, but decentralized applications (DApps) residing on a blockchain have extra considerations. Transactions between a web application and smart contract can involve private patient data or records. Smart contracts can make external calls to other untrusted contracts introducing a degree of risk to systems that are otherwise secure. Some contracts interact with services and data stored off of the blockchain and need to be secured in addition to the application front end and contracts themselves.
