Shivom Foundation established
The foundation will strive to establish ethical and efficient stewardship, which involves collaborating, identifying common interests and creating incentives for all stakeholders to act on them. Like the Hyperledger Foundation, the Shivom Foundation will provide for a technical steering committee and a process for reaching consensus on changes to the ecosystem. It will also establish an advocacy & marketing committee and a knowledge network for industry outreach and education. Finally, it sets forth codes of conduct, including transparency to ensure the formation of trusts. Building this foundation will mitigate some of the strong legal uncertainty surrounding emergent technologies such as genomics and blockchain, thereby helping the genomics ecosystem and partners alike to move beyond the proof-of-concept stage. The foundation will work on legal and regulatory frameworks to ensure a long-term, sustainable and technically sound healthcare service
