Self Care Week 2018.


Medicalchain is proud to support Self Care Week 2018, which runs this year from the 12th to the 18th of November. Self Care Week is an initiative which aims to engage and empower people to better look after their own health. Last year it reached ~20,000,000 people with its message, mirroring Medicalchain’s ethos, “own your health”.

With a focus on health innovation to help patients help themselves Dr Knut Schroeder, a GP, Self Care Forum Board member and founder of free self care app resource producer Expert Self Care, said: “Health apps are easily accessible for anyone with a smartphone. Containing information, advice and tips on topics ranging from first aid and healthy living to pregnancy and mental health; health apps can be great for learning more about health issues and enabling people to self care.”

Dr Abdullah Albeyatti, Co-Founder and CEO of Medicalchain said: “Medicalchain is focused on addressing the issue of a fragmented healthcare system by empowering patients to be at the centre of their care. Through innovative use of the latest advancements in technology, we are able to resolve much of the issues we see in the health system today and we can provide all this through an app on a smartphone, making access and usability of a patient’s personal Health Record easier than ever”.

MyClinic.com is a tool anyone with Web access can use, either through their personal computer, laptop, or smartphone. MyClinic.com empowers patients by giving them choice and understanding of complex health issues and the treatment options available. It allows families to be more involved in their loved ones care and therefore support better self care, regardless of the distance between them. Secure and safe access to health records also promotes better communications with multiple doctors at the same time to always strive for the best advice possible for each individual patient. This is in perfect harmony with the theme of Self Care Week 2018, being “choose self care for life”.

  • Maxime Fischer, is focussing on backend development.
  • Ahmed Hassanein, our new junior full-stack developer.
  • Max Port, also joining us as a junior developer supporting the lead developers.

Product Development

MyClinic.com:

We are pleased to announce that our first product, the MyClinic.com application is now live, you can download the application through the Apple App store if you are residing within the UK, download here.

MyClinic.com is a subsidiary of Medicalchain that provides telemedicine services to patients who are in need of an online consultation, with more functionalities to come. MyClinic.com is the first application in the world to support cryptocurrency as a form of payment for online medical treatment.

Maria Rodriguez, the first patient to use cryptocurrency to access an appointment with her GP, said: “It’s super cool to finally use cryptocurrency to purchase services. MyClinic.com is easy to use and I love the fact that I can talk to a doctor I know well and trust. I found the report that was sent by the doctor within a few minutes really helpful and reassuring. I’m definitely going to use MyClinic.com again and I’ve already started telling my friends and family about it.”

You can pick up the story — here.

We are progressing now with our development with a focus on v1.5 of the MyClinic.com application, we are also working on the development of the Health Platform which we aim to incorporate into the MyClinic.com application by Q3 2019.

The Health Platform will act as the foundation of all of the Medicalchain products and will be different from the Health Passport which will be its own application outright.

Forbes Features Medicalchain As ‘The Solution To The Patient Data Problem’

Dear Community,

The Medicalchain team remain hard at work, developing the MyClinic.com application and the Medicalchain Health Passport.

Our hard work has not gone unnoticed. We recently completed an interview with Trevor Clawson, Forbes contributor. We hope you enjoy reading the published article.




Broken Records — UK Entrepreneurs See Blockchain As The Solution To The Patient Data Problem

Originally published and sourced from Forbes, written by Trevor Clawson.

“Medicalchain is seeking to address a big problem — namely the fragmented nature of health records here in the UK and elsewhere around the globe. In an ideal world, when a patient sees a doctor, the practitioner in question would have access to a complete medical history before deciding on a treatment. In practice, it’s not so simple. A patient might turn up at an accident and emergency department, visit an unfamiliar General Practitioner when away from home, seek private treatment, or see a doctor when travelling abroad. In all of these scenarios, comprehensive records might not be available, simply because the data is stored in local silos.”

Robert Miller, sat on the panel discussion “ICOs and Financing of Blockchain Startups and Initiatives,” at The Healthcare Blockchain SUMMIT.

“Thought leaders from across the blockchain in healthcare industry converged on Boston to come together for The Second Annual Healthcare Blockchain Summit. Presentation content was level headed and pragmatic; the excessive hype normally associated with blockchain was cut out. Instead there was a focus on implementation and what needs to happen for blockchain in healthcare adoption. I was excited to play a role, giving a taxonomy of cryptoassets and sharing what we have learned at Medicalchain.”

“It was wonderful to share the details of MyClinic.com, with our community in London. The audience was particularly interested in whether they too, would be able to download the application and utilise MedTokens on our platform, during the pilot with the Groves Medical Group. I explained that UK citizens will be able to download the application, following the launch however, individuals are welcome to register with The Groves Medical Group to become part of the trial. Alternatively, anyone can advise their practice to contact Medicalchain, if they would like to utilise our technology.”
