Yes! An organisation may request data from a registered user. After user approval (consent) the test results will be shared with the requesting organisation.

This feature is currently in development on our roadmap.

For organisational purposes the company registration process takes a little longer.

In terms of country/compliance region deployments, it takes a few weeks before we can begin on boarding users due to infrastructure setup and testing.

HealthKeyID™ is a SAAS service provided all around the world, can work with any cloud operator.

Some possible features are:

  • Country specific government health registration systems integration with local partnerships.
We want HealthKeyID to be the standard that enables integration with all systems allowing it to be the bridge between many different existing solutions.

Any user in any country may use HealthKeyID™ to share (with their consent Virolens test results, or any other data that is stored on the users HealthKeyIDsystem.

You will need to perform a fresh registration.

There is only one copy of encryption key to decrypt user’s data, and its stored on the users mobile phone.

It needs to be kept safe. In future releases this may change, but a new registration only takes a few minutes.
