Australia-based Verida Health is depending on VeChainThor for its decentralized health care solution where individuals have ownership and control over their personal health data.
Verida Health says it makes use of VeChain technology in the health sector, this time that there is an increasing demand for verifiable health data and telehealth technology, to make patients the owner and sharer of their data.

Verida, which depends on VeChainThor, is an open-source platform offering decentralized health care solutions for the benefit of healthcare workers and patients.
The platform offers a decentralised Electronic Medical Record (EMR) where medical personnel can manage the records of their patients easily. These records are encrypted with blockchain keys, allowing patients be in control of their records, revoke, or share access with doctors.

The platform will make use of a decentralized ID (DID) to save information in individual devices using a digital identity wallet.
