Internet giant GMO Internet Inc. of Japan today announced the launch of the GMO Blockchain Open Source Software Project (GMO Blockchain OSS). The system will allow users to develop programs using blockchain as open source. In a first attempt by the company using this platform, the company has developed an open source medical record sharing system and launched it on July 6th, 2017.
The GMO Blockchain OSS (free to modify, free for commercial) programmes are capable of supporting real service development using blockchain technology. Blockchain technology enables users to record and retain data which can be distributed on multiple computers. The system is popular for its fraud-resistant capabilities and zero downtime for a low cost. This helps the doctors access the medical history of patients quickly, in times of emergency, as soon as the user gives access to the same.
