The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council has awarded Leidos, Intel and First Genesis the 2019 Audience Choice Award in recognition of their collaborative work on a blockchain-based approach to sharing data across electronic record management systems.
Leidos said Monday the industry team developed a platform to facilitate the transmission of clinical trial results and patient data among health care providers.
Ray Yep, director of Intel's federal health business, said the system uses Optane solid state drives and Xeon Scalable processors.
“We have architected our Blockchain Platform as a Service to address the traditional IT platform challenges in interoperability, security, performance and scalability,“ First Genesis CEO Pascal Watty said.
First Genesis is headquartered in Texas and offers data security, compliance, systems integration, project management, data analytics, interoperability, blockchain and cloud computing services.
ACT-IAC aims to help improve government processes with the use of technology. The council provides opportunities for private and public organizations to collaborate on blockchain, health information technology, cybersecurity and workforce management, among other areas.
