BurstIQ Makes Health Data Verifiable, Secure, and Portable With Dock
How do you ensure data remains secure and verifiable when it leaves the ecosystem you control? BurstIQ implemented Dock’s Verifiable Credentials technology (VCs) to manage health data while respecting users’ privacy and data ownership rights.
Chief Strategy Officer, BurstIQ
BurstIQ’s LifeGraph platform simplifies the management of extensive, confidential human health data and gives businesses the ability to comply with people’s data rights while creating hyper-personalized digital experiences. Each LifeGraph that is built for someone is a digital fingerprint of that person capturing all the data they generated and how that information interacts with other people, places, and things. For example, licensed nurses can have their education issued as Verifiable Credentials and as they pass more training sessions, they will have a record of their skills.
With older and centralized data management systems, health data can be manipulated and less secure. BurstIQ wanted to be able to make any of their data transportable within their ecosystem between players and outside of the ecosystem while keeping the security, integrity, and the ownership of data intact.
Dock’s Verifiable Credentials Solution
LifeGraph simplifies how data is collected, managed, and controlled and it was important for BurstIQ to choose a technology solution that maintains security, tamper-resistant data, and user privacy. Verifiable Credentials are an essential component to be able to do that within their system.
Verifiable Credentials are a digital cryptographically secured version of digital credentials that people can present to organizations that need them for verification. They will allow companies and people within and outside of BurstIQ’s ecosystem to exchange information by offering a way to present their identity, health information, professional accomplishments, and more as verified, trustworthy data.
By integrating Dock's Verifiable Credentials solution, LifeGraph customers can now turn any health data into a Verifiable Credential that is portable, secure and verifiable.
Benefits of Verifiable Credentials for LifeGraph
Save time and money with instant verification
Organizations that receive data can instantly check the authenticity of the data rather than use manual, time-consuming, and more expensive verification processes.
Sustained data integrity
LifeGraph can prove that the data within their system and data that has left their system is accurate and has not been altered or modified.
Privacy and ownership for individuals
BurstIQ enables a trust-first digital strategy with human data. With VCs, people can maintain their privacy and ownership rights by enabling them to give consent and revoke permissions for organizations to access their data as they see fit.
Efficient data exchange
Organizations can conveniently send data to relevant parties faster in order to provide personalized and enhanced services for people.
How it works
BurstIQ will primarily be using the Certs API. Certs Web Dashboard will mainly be used to administer API usage such as creating new API keys to create Verifiable Credentials. LifeGraph assigns ownership to a piece of data so whatever company is using LifeGraph will know who the owner is. The platform allows for dynamic consent if, for example, a client decides to remove access to their health data.
The Verifiable Credential services provided by Dock will initially be deployed to verify and attest employee skills and learning accomplishments. This will build trusted engagements between employees and employers while enabling employers to optimize their workforce.
