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

Medicalchain Announces Joint Working Agreement with Mayo Clinic

A collaboration of technology and healthcare specialists seeking to prove the value of blockchain in healthcare.


United Kingdom, London: Today, Medicalchain announced that it signed a joint working agreement with the internationally renowned Mayo Clinic. The two organisations will work together to explore the potential benefits of blockchain technology in healthcare, with a vision to develop a variety of services in the future.

The US based Mayo Clinic has unparalleled expertise and was ranked the top hospital nationally by the U.S. News & World Report rankings of top hospitals.

Mayo Clinic is top ranked in a wide range of specialities, including diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.

“We are thrilled to be working with Mayo Clinic. Mayo Clinic will provide their world-class healthcare and health IT expertise, while Medicalchain will provide our knowledge of blockchain and crypto. Together we will work on several use cases using blockchain based electronic health records. There’s a lot of opportunity out there, and we feel this working agreement will be of benefit to all healthcare stakeholders.”

Dr Abdullah Albeyatti, CEO of Medicalchain.

Blockchain technology is a revolutionary innovation that first gained traction within financial services for its ability to speed up transactions, reduce costs, and provide a shared immutable ledger. The same principles are widely applicable to healthcare and show promise in addressing some of the systemic problems our systems face today, such as data security, fragmentation, high costs, and lack of patient centricity. The joint working agreement between Mayo Clinic and Medicalchain is a step forward in realising this vision.

Connecting patients with their doctor, from anywhere in the world.

London — 16th May, 2018 — Medicalchain, a company utilising blockchain technology to disrupt healthcare, announced MyClinic.com, the first application to be released by the organisation. MyClinic.com is the first cross-border, telemedicine platform, that will enable patients to complete video consultations with their doctor, and pay using MedTokens (MTN).


“We are excited to share the first application, powered by Medicalchain. MyClinic.com will be piloted with patients registered at The Groves Medical Practice and The Groves’ General Practitioners, from July 2018, and will be launched to the general public later this year.” Dr. Abdullah Albeyatti, Co-Founder and CEO, Medicalchain.

MyClinic.com is a telemedicine application that utilises Medicalchain’s blockchain technology to connect patients with their doctor through a convenient and secure video consultation platform. MyClinic.com exists to build better relationships between doctors and their patients, especially when access to healthcare is difficult. At the same time MyClinic.com will give patients the power to choose the best doctors to consult with, anywhere in the world.

“We are working together with patients, health professionals and technology specialists to ensure that MyClinic.com will seamlessly integrate into current healthcare services, and provide patients with a better experience of healthcare.” Mo Tayeb, Co-Founder and COO, Medicalchain.

Like other future Medicalchain powered applications, MyClinic.com will incorporate Medicalchain’s blockchain based Health Passport, which utilises Hyperledger Fabric to provide patients with the power to access their personal health records immediately and share them with whomever they choose. Patients utilising MyClinic.com will be able to securely and instantaneously share personal health records with their doctor, from anywhere in the world, ensuring that every doctor has the information required to complete a thorough assessment.
