The Deloitte report gives an overview of the main trends and issues that currently affect patient data organizing and sharing. It also defines blockchain is and its capabilities for clinical research while it describes several blockchain applications and takes a look at future implications of blockchain in the healthcare sector.

According to this study, blockchain offers the following set of capabilities: transparency, trust, disintermediation, auditability, and smart contracts.

The document examines various blockchain applications to solve data sharing issues in clinical research. A blockchain shared between patients, pharmaceutical companies, academic research institutions, medical suppliers, and regulators, the research notes, can constitute the source of truth for clinical research options. Patients would be able to send their medical data and look for clinical research opportunities that are adequate for their medical profile. 

The paper also indicates that blockchain could also promote data sharing thanks to real-time transparency into clinical research results and crypto-tokens. 

At the same time, patient information on the blockchain can be identified through smart contracts boosting the privacy of patient medical information.
