CHICAGO — Oct. 17, 2018 — Epazz, Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a leading provider of blockchain mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today that the company’s patent pending Blockchain Electronic Health Care Records Technology will support Hyperledger standards. Hyperledger is a wide-use open source blockchain solution. Epazz has been using Hyperledger solutions to speed the development of its new blockchain products. The company has been providing electronic health care records cloud software for over six years.
Our patent pending technology will help curb the number of health care data breaches that occur. According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), there were over 477 health care data breaches in 2017, which affected over 5.579 million patient records. The breaches cost $408 per record. Epazz believes that by using blockchain technology, records will be distributed across the blockchain and will have a level of encryption that can only be unlocked with the patient’s digital key. The company will be developing application programming interfaces, which it will license to other EHRs (Electronic Health Records providers), hospitals and payers.
An article from the Milwaukee Business Journal, “How Blockchain technology is transforming healthcare cybersecurity,” provides more details on how blockchain technology offers many benefits for cybersecurity.
Epazz CEO, Shaun Passley, Ph.D., said, “We are expanding the possibilities of our cloud health care software with the new usages of blockchain to provide our current customers and potential customers greater flexibility and functionality. We believe these efforts will help us increase revenue.”
Epazz reported its unaudited second quarter results for 2018. The company reported revenue of $386,961, compared with $385,163 for the second quarter of 2017. The company reported an operating income of $35,963. This is a substantial turnaround in the company’s financial position. Additionally, the company’s interest expenses have substantially decreased, dropping from $50,973 for the second quarter of 2017 to just $20,062 for the second quarter of 2018.
