In the "Amanuensis" project we explore the potential combination of blockchain and trusted-execution-environment (TEE) technology to support strong integrity and confidentiality guarantees in the storage of health-related data... including robust provenance information regarding information derived from original sources.

In our first paper, we surveyed the literature regarding use of blockchain in healthcare information systems [hardin:blockchain-survey].

In our second paper, we describe the design and initial evaluation of Amanuensis, a concept for a secure, integrated healthcare data system that leverages Blockchain and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technologies to achieve information provenance for mHealth data [hardin:amanuensis].
