Connect to any Data Store

Connect data sources from different systems, and register them on a common ledger. Create proofs-of-existence with verifiable integrity without surrendering custody of sensitive information.

Standardize Resource Representation

Attach identity registries for individuals, groups, and devices, and assign a universal blockchain IDs. Create entitlements for users and roles across the network and automatically enforce key-based authorization. Safeguard user access with industry-leading security based on PKI and hierarchical-deterministic (HD) identity trees.

Architecture

GemOS seeks to present a scalable,​ flexible,​ and extensible​ platform for building, deploying, and managing distributed applications. With these goals in mind, GemOS was designed based on few core principles:

Use well-defined and well-managed microservices to encapsulate functionality, isolate sensitive data, enable responsive and efficient scaling, and provide a framework for future improvements.

Speed matters, but so does ease. Favor event-driven architecture to construct fast, responsive systems, but provide support for alternate modes of operation.

Expose high-level abstractions of the foundational elements of distributed applications in a powerful, well-understood programming environment to simplify development of extensions, adapters, and applications.

Gem shows off first blockchain application for health claims

Los Angeles-based startup Gem has developed the first blockchain product for health claims management, which is being demonstrated at Consensus 2017, the main industry meet-up.

The Gem health claims solution takes aim at three of the toughest issues confronting the healthcare industry, said a release. The first is the lack of real-time transparency into health claims transactions involving providers and payers; then there is the amount of time it takes for providers to get paid for their service. Thirdly is the slow rate of provider reimbursements because of the time it takes to generate and deliver the patient’s Explanation of Benefits.

President Trump, Use ‘Something Old, New, Borrowed, And Blue’ To Fix Healthcare And #MAGA

There are four simple things that will lead America out of the Obamacare box. These clues are hidden in the old English folk rhyme about the charms for a bride to wear on her wedding day to bring good luck: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.”

Do Republican legislators wish to be able to again attend town hall meetings without meeting torch-and-pitchfork wielding constituents? Does President Trump wish to secure his re-election prospects? If so, take heed.
