They say in the article that they still need to work on a method that will allow transfer of data between the person, healthcare providers and insurance providers to include meeting required privacy regulations. How would that change getting hired? Unless you divulge any medical condition to a potential place of work, they wont know. A healthcare block chain doesn't change that.

Most companies require you to go through their own physician to get an all clear, meaning they will have access to your wallet, no one will know if they peaked or not, paid doctor is paid doctor.
This still doesn't change the current HIPAA laws. That's what keeps them from looking through everything.
