Crypto Industry News:
According to the media, several federal agencies such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of the Treasury have started using blockchain.
US Food and Drug Administration officials needed an effective way to help them track data on the H1N1 swine flu virus, which started spreading again in 2017. Of course, US Food and Drug Administration officials have found no better way than adopting blockchain technology.
Henry Francis, associate director of data mining and computing evaluation and research at the FDA's Drug Evaluation and Research Center, successfully developed a blockchain-based application that automatically enables them to obtain real-time encrypted data from multiple sources. Francis explained that the Application for Portable Interactive Devices (RAPID) program is one of the first full-blown blockchain implementations in the federal government, and interest in the technology is growing.
The Treasury Department's Office of Innovation and Financial Transformation, or FIT, has also turned to blockchain. The first application was used for tracking mobile devices, and the second was for managing software licenses. FIT also tested whether blockchain use can improve grant payment processes in collaboration with the National Science Foundation.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) also uses distributed ledger technology to increase its mass purchasing power, reduce reporting burden, lower costs for industry partners and improve record keeping of supplier transactions.
