HIMSS 2021, LAS VEGAS — 10 Aug 2021 — Healthtech startup TYDEi Health (TYDEi) today announced that it has selected Sextant for Daml, the blockchain and smart contract management and operations platform provided by Blockchain Technology Partners (BTP), to underpin the delivery of its innovative SaaS offering, debuting at HIMSS Startup Park @ Innovation Live, that helps healthcare facilities better manage supplier relationships and medical device procurement.

In the US, nearly half of hospital revenues are from surgical procedures, with most of these procedures relying on third-party medical device suppliers to deliver patient care. The implantable medical device market — forecasted to reach a value of US$160 billion by 2026 — operates mostly by way of paper-based transactions.

TYDEi is transforming this market by launching an innovative service that allows healthcare facilities to efficiently and transparently manage the ordering, inventory and delivery of implantable medical devices. This way, these medical facilities are better equipped to meet HIPAA compliance, and have greater control over inventory as well as the surgical implant to ensure that the right device is available for surgery when and where it is needed.

“We chose Sextant for Daml because of BTP’s ability to provide an industry-grade management platform for our smart contract application,” said John Hatchell, CEO & Co-founder of TYDEi Health. “The Sextant platform offers scalability, enhanced monitoring services and security — all things that are crucial for our organization to successfully deliver a service solution in healthcare.”

BTP’s Sextant for Daml solution radically simplifies the deployment and management of the Daml runtime environment on distributed ledgers as well as centralized alternatives, which allows TYDEi to focus on customer needs and the development of its supply chain management application, rather than the underlying technology infrastructure.

“We are delighted to support TYDEi’s innovative healthcare application by taking care of the technology infrastructure,” said Duncan Johnston-Watt, CEO & Co-founder of BTP. “By utilizing smart contracts TYDEi is making the implantable medical device supply chain more efficient, transparent, and from the patient’s point of view, trustworthy.”

Daml is an application platform created by Digital Asset, and purpose-built for coding complex multiparty business processes. Daml applications provide a robust framework to better manage transactional workflows, resulting in improved operational efficiency, while preserving privacy and trust. This is especially important in highly-regulated industries such as healthcare.

“Digital Asset believes that seamless coordination is essential for quality healthcare,” said Corey Todaro, Senior Product Manager, Healthcare, at Digital Asset. “With Daml, TYDEi Health is making operational coordination across enterprise boundaries a reality.”

Sextant for Daml, developed by BTP in partnership with Digital Asset, simplifies the deployment and management of the Daml runtime environment on Hyperledger Besu and Hyperledger Sawtooth, as well as Amazon QLDB, Amazon Aurora and PostgreSQL. It is rapidly emerging as the platform of choice for companies delivering Daml applications in production.
