Decentralised Consent Management applied to centralised nationwide Electronic Health Record datastore and organ donation

There is a global shortage of organ. The need is much higher than the offer, even in countries where citizens and residents are all presumed donors. Even if 80% of the population are willing to donate, 61% have never expressed their consent. In this case, medical staff approaches family to ask for consent and the refusal rate is high. In addition, collected consents in the existing solutions have compliance issues. Consent extension module of EHR software vendor is too naive. Sometimes the consent is just a flag stored in the database. There is no way to prove the authenticity and the integrity of the consent. Public healthcare institutions are exposed to legal risks. Institutions still use paper based process. It is impractical and incurs administrative burden. There is 2000 complains per year in Luxembourg on the average and file a court case takes several days.
