Kaula Incorporated, a blockchain platformer, has announced that Kaula and Atrris Co., Ltd. – a company that has been developing personnel, payment, accounting and medical logistics systems - have agreed to jointly develop a ‘usage record management system’ against data involved in the personnel, payment, account and medical applications using the Factom blockchain.

Using this system will enable the log records generated when the Japanese social security system’s data is processed – when information is added, updated, deleted or retrieved in mission-critical applications – to retain authenticity and tamper resistance. Kaula and Atrris will also jointly promote business around the usage of record management systems.

Blockchain has become the solution requested to achieve record authenticity or tamper resistance against processed results in mission-critical applications that Atrris develops. Kaula and Atrris have been investigating ways to enact this requirement, and have decided to leverage their joint knowledge, combined with Factom’s blockchain technology. The data layer blockchain product of Factom will be used for use cases that office staff of local government access data of the Japanese social security number system have. Now that Kaula and Atrris have completed a PoC and confirmed that their jointly developed usage record management system can retain log record authenticity or tamper resistance, both companies will proceed to a next step of experimental proof with their customers, and then will apply the system to business applications.

In addition, the use of Factom will enable more secure and sure management, tracking and auditing of various kinds of documents or records such as log records in general, loan records, securities or insurance contracts and medical data and others in a decentralized way that has many benefits over legacy centralized systems.
