New technologies, including blockchain, are capable of facilitating the management and ex-change of health-care data (people’s personal health records) while permitting patients to de-cide autonomously to whom and when to make these data available while, at the same time, safeguarding their privacy. One these new technologies have been set up they might impact, however, on traditional «medical dominance » by placing the patient at the heart of the health-care system. The final outcome of a similar process could well lead to the hegemony of forces supporting a neo-liberal vision, with the patient as a consumer of health products and services as well as an informed and attentive self-manager of his/her own medical data and health-care services, both as commodities made available on the market.
Keywords: Digital health; healthcare professions; personal health record (PHR); professional dominance; data commodification; Blockchain.
