The Iryo Network is a global repository of openEHR data. Since few people are prepared to provide their medical data to a “GoogleEHR”-type of capture and shameless reaping of all the medical data for commercial purposes, Iryo has decided to give up it’s access to plain data. Iryo perceives the medical data it holds as a “toxic asset”, because we believe that holding too much data in one place presents too large a liability risk.

The solution to managing this risk is zero-knowledge data storage which is resistant to all attacks, including state-actors or “inside jobs’’. This works by way of users encrypting their data on their mobile device(s) with a public key.

A private decryption key remains on the patient’s device. Whenever someone wants to access patient data (a doctor or researcher, for example) the patient has to approve their access. This will be done by the patient clicking “yes’’ in their IryoEHR app. This gives a re-encryption key to the doctor’s public key. You can read more under the “Private key management section” to understand the details of this process and the application to the edge cases.
