Business Challenge

Can you imagine gambling with Patient Identity?
Imagine entering a patient's name in the hospital system and hoping that you get the medical records of the right patient.

It’s a scary proposition but unfortunately, it happens every day and the problem increases exponentially when you factor in pandemics like COVID-19. Patient misidentification is identified as a root cause of many medical errors, contributing to 134 million patient harm events and 2.6 million deaths each year around the world.


About Liber Health

Liber Health is the first-of-its-kind patient identity blockchain network which uses patient biometrics for identification, privacy and health data transfers. The solution utilizes safe and contactless IRIS scans to identify patients and fetch medical records during the entire healthcare process, including registration, emergency, drug administration, and drug infusions.

Liber Health is both a standalone solution for patient identification and also an extension of the existing hospital systems and electronic medical record (EMR) systems for health data interoperability. 

To help flatten the curve, Liber Health has also launched contactless iris attendance and Covid prescreening for frontline workers, especially for medical practitioners.

Digital Transformation

When it comes to moving sensitive and confidential data to the cloud, especially in Healthcare, customers require the use of their own data encryption keys and want to be assured that no one has access to these keys. Liber Health leverages IBM Cloud® Hyper Protect DBaaS which offers 100% tamper-proof, enterprise cloud database environments with high availability for workloads with sensitive data. It is built on LinuxONE technology, which provides built-in data encryption along with excellent vertical scalability and performance. This combined with other IBM Cloud services has allowed them to achieve compliance readiness for multiple standards including GDPR, HIPAA and ISO.


Empowers healthcare providers and patients by liberating health records from data silos.

Secures personal and health data with privacy-first approaches and highest standards in the industry.

Saves healthcare providers $millions lost due to identity thefts/frauds, denied claims and duplicate medical records.
