Alihealth, the medical arm of Alibaba, and the government of Changzhou city in East China's Jiangsu province, have rolled out a pilot program to integrate medical data sparsely located in different hospitals, with the help of blockchain technology, China Securities Journal's online portal cs.com.cn reported on Aug 17.

Zhang Zhihong, president of the Zhenglu Town Hospital, a local hospital with 30,000 visits each day, said those who have been diagnosed with critical disease, such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, could have their physical records transferred directly to doctors at larger hospitals via a blockchain Alihealth built.

Zhang added that doctors who are authorized to see these records could know about these patients immediately without physical examinations.
