Revolutionizing Cross-Border Healthcare: Introducing Universal Health Identifiers for Seamless Integration

Revolutionizing Cross-Border Healthcare: Introducing Universal Health Identifiers for Seamless Integration

ConnectHealth, a pioneering and innovative organization, has developed a series of groundbreaking patents that revolutionize cross-border healthcare using Universal Health Identifiers. These patents, such as the “Procedure for the Global Unified Registration and Universal Identification of Donors” and the “Procedure for Unified Global Registry and Identification of Products of Biological Origin for Medicinal Purposes,” introduce innovative solutions for seamless identification and traceability in the healthcare industry.


The “Procedure for the Global Unified Registration and Universal Identification of Donors” ensures that each donor possesses a unique and decentralized Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) specifically designed for cross-border identification. This approach eliminates collisions and streamlines the identification process. Similarly, the “Procedure for Unified Global Registry and Identification of Products of Biological Origin for Medicinal Purposes” establishes a comprehensive system for tracing biological substances and derived products, guaranteeing their traceability from raw materials to recipients or their destruction. This patent also unifies various product identifiers used in different regions (UDIs) and extends its application to clinical trials, medical procedures, healthcare providers, services, and employees.


Moreover, ConnectHealth’s “Unified Identification Protocol in Training and Health” facilitates secure identity verification and bi-directional information exchange. This protocol plays a vital role in enhancing data security and confidentiality.


These innovative patents are seamlessly integrated into the Universal Health Chain (UHC) and SOSChain by the UNID Foundation. The UNID-Network, a cross-border healthcare network, incorporates a series of API services that enable universal identification of patients, donors, health organizations, services, employees, roles, qualifications, medical devices, medical documents, legal documents (e.g., consents), and products of biological origin. Furthermore, it ensures the traceability of permissions and consents in a secure, automated, and global manner.


The technology developed by ConnectHealth and the UNID Foundation serves various purposes, which are elaborated upon in our blog. It revolves around the generation of Universal Health Identifiers for individuals and their associated cryptographic material, designed to withstand quantum computing. These identifiers can be linked to local national identifiers such as driver’s licenses, passports, and health cards. Encrypted connections allow individuals to effortlessly receive, store, and share encrypted data, ensuring its resilience both online and offline, including through Bluetooth. Additionally, the system incorporates an emergency protocol wherein patients, donors, or their legal guardians pre-authorize access to specific data stored across different healthcare providers.


One of the key advantages of the UNID-Network is its compatibility with different systems, as it remains Electronic Health Record (EHR) agnostic. The services can be deployed on Kubernetes, whether on-premises or in the cloud. Moreover, the network is fully compliant with data protection laws and adheres to privacy by design principles (ISO 31700-1). It relies on quantum-resistant cryptography, OpenID, HL7 FHIR, International Patient Summary (IPS), selective disclosure of information via interoperable URIs, and verifiable credentials (VC).


Implementing the UNID-Network yields several benefits:


  1. To start with, individuals gain ownership of their health data and can be identified globally through their Universal Identifiers for cross-border healthcare.


  1. Also, the resilience of information systems is significantly improved, bolstering their ability to withstand cyber attacks, wars, natural disasters, and other challenges.


  1. Software applications that comply with UNID-Network’s protocols can seamlessly exchange data in both directions with patients, donors, legal guardians, and family members, even without a network connection, thanks to the resilient design, enforced encryption and the use of several standards such as International Patient Summary (IPS), EU and G7 approved.


  1. The Universal Identifiers generated by the UNID-Network can be associated with other individual or product identifiers, such as local patient or donor identifiers, driver’s licenses, ISBT-128 codes, GTIN, and UDIs, among others.


  1. To ensure data integrity and certification, all identity, clinical, and product data is blockchain certified using open source technology and international standards.


  1. Consequently, product quality and transparency are improved, while minimizing the occurrence of unethical practices through enforced traceability.


  1. Moreover, the system guarantees the verification of data quality for research purposes before anonymization, promoting the generation and safe sharing of anonymous data for research.


ConnectHealth and the UNID Foundation are at the forefront of revolutionizing cross-border healthcare through their cutting-edge technologies. By combining innovative patents with the UNID-Network, they provide a secure, interoperable, and globally accessible platform that transforms the way healthcare information is managed, shared, and utilized.
