Medicalchain is a decentralised platform that enables secure and transparent exchange and usage of health records. Utilising blockchain technology, Medicalchain creates a single true version of an individual’s electronic health record, ensuring the right data is available to the right professional at the right time. By leveraging Medicalchain’s technology, patients will be empowered to share their health records with health professionals on a case by case basis. Interactions with a patient’s health record are stored as transactions on Medicalchain’s blockchain.
Robert Miller was one of the first employees at Medicalchain and has seen every stage of the platform’s development. Having helped implement a blockchain solution, he has a unique perspective on the value of blockchain in healthcare.
Medicalchain is seeking to build a thriving ecosystem of applications and services on top of its blockchain. These applications and services will use Medicalchain’s blockchain and be powered by users’ health data. Medicalchain is developing two of these applications: a telemedicine consultation and a health data marketplace. Using Medicalchain’s telemedicine application, patients and doctors will communicate using mobile, tablet, or desktop video conferencing. Patients will also have the ability to share their full health record with the doctor during their consultation. With the health data marketplace, patients will be enabled to commercialise their health record by leasing it to researchers in return for Medicalchain’s cryptocurrency. What’s more, Medicalchain is inviting third party developers to build their applications on its platform.
Medicalchain was founded in 2016 by Dr Abdullah Albeyatti and Mo Tayeb to address inefficiencies in the healthcare industry. It is a decentralised platform that enables secure, fast and transparent exchange and usage of medical data.
Using blockchain technology, Medicalchain has created a user-focused electronic health record that can be used by patients and healthcare professionals — including doctors, hospitals, laboratories and insurers alike. It enables patients to consult doctors and medical physicians remotely, wherever they are in the world, in the knowledge that they’ll have access to necessary medical records. Medicalchain also offers an innovative way to connect researchers and patients, rewarding patients with personalised incentives for sharing their anonymised data.
