How to store medical data in the blockchain?

Anyone familiar with MedRec: https://www.pubpub.org/pub/medrec

Wonder how to avoid the database gatekeeper in their design, was thinking IPFS(?), alternatives?

    I've been asking this same question. Didn't know about IPFS. That could work with storing huge amount of health data.

    Yes, unfortunately storing PII on a public blockchain makes many people nervous. This was a topic of concern at the NIST Blockchain and Healthcare Workshop the past two days. Perhaps keep the identities anonymous and store information as merely attributes associated with secure ID?

    Maybe auditors can benefit from the pseudonimity(?), e.g. proof of care coordination, or history of interventions

    For complete anonymity, perhaps use https://z.cash/
