Collaborative Design In Action
On the 23rd May Natalie Furness, Communications Director, was invited to host a workshop with doctors from Royal Berkshire Hospital, sharing their ideas on communicating patient data.
We are excited to give you a sneak peek at a few snapshots of MyClinic.com app in development. Please note that these designs are tentative and subject to change as we pilot with patients, and doctors at the The Groves Medical Center.
For those that are familiar with design processes, you will be aware that user feedback on early design and features is key to refining the user interface for future development.

Consensus 2018, New York
Robert’s Thoughts on Consensus 2018
Representing Medicalchain at Consensus 2018 was Robert Miller who continues to drive interest in the US for our solution
“Blockchain Week is a whirlwind of activity with Consensus at the heart of the storm; nearly 10,000 people converged on the Hilton Midtown, New York for three days to discuss the greatest and latest developments in blockchain technology. I was honored to represent Medicalchain on a panel discussing the state of blockchain in healthcare. In my discussions on and off stage, I was invigorated by the passion in the people I spoke to and the unique opportunity we have today to help build a better future. Reflecting on these conversations today, I can unequivocally say that I’ve never been more excited for the future or to be a part of the blockchain revolution.”
Robert Miller, Head of Business Development — Medicalchain
