On April 14, MediBloc finalized the linkage between Medipass(our medical data blockchain platform) and Seoul Medical Center. By expanding our simple claims service to the patients of Seoul Medical Center, they also can now enjoy the benefits of Medipass, including easily retrieving their medical history data and making insurance claims much more conveniently.
Seoul Medical Center has built a 623-bed hospital to extend the reach and effectiveness of its medical staff, facilities, and equipment, as well as to develop South Korea’s first integrated nursing care service. During the coronavirus pandemic, Seoul Medical Center has been designated as a specialized hospital for infectious diseases and has been operating the largest number of beds dedicated to coronavirus treatment nationwide, with well over 5,000 confirmed patients so far. At the center on March 10, 1,200 individuals were vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, contributing further to the quality of public health in addition to the development of expanded healthcare business.
Dr. Allen Wookyun Kho, co-founder of MediBloc, said, “I’m pleased to have successfully completed our linkage between Medipass and Seoul Medical Center, an iconic public hospital representing the city. Now all the patients of Seoul Medical Center can review their medical history and more easily file insurance claims via the Medipass app.” He added, “I hope that Seoul Medical Center, which operates the most beds dedicated to coronavirus treatment and strives to expand its efforts all the while, can soon provide more convenient services, such as vaccination certificates, to patients in conjunction with Medipass. In the future, we will continue to make efforts to create best practices for the medical information ecosystem by expanding the scope of the project and allowing patients to safely manage their medical information.”
The MediBloc team will continue to develop patient-centered medical information solutions to ensure an innovative paradigm and help create a world in which everyone can live a healthy life. We will do our best to bring to life the medical ecosystem we’ve been dreaming of, and we ask for your interest and support as we move forward!
