Vaccinations have rolled out across most of the UK with young adults now being the final group to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations.
This will soon bring normality back to the Medicalchain/MyClinic team who have been working remotely for over a year now.
Wherever you are in the world, we wish that you and your family members are safe and that this global pandemic will end soon for all of us.
We are aiming to go ahead with a rebranding of our original ‘Health Passport’ solution after the UK government started using this title to describe how they would monitor patients who have had the COVID-19 vaccine which led to negative connotations in the media.
Our solution will now be called ‘MyClinic Connect’ to bring all of our branding together.
MyClinic Connect features and updates include:
- Final stages of talks with large research company
- Upgraded dashboard
- Securing remaining primary care patient record access in the UK
Our upcoming MyClinic features include:
- Patient transfer between clinics
- Audit trail of patient
- Profiles piece revamp
We are looking forward to sharing with the community our blockchain developments for electronic health records. We will be releasing more information soon, stay tuned!

Sam Tier – Digital Marketing Manager, Medicalchain/MyClinic
Welcome to the team Sam – tell us a bit about yourself?
Thank you for the opportunity. I like to think of myself as a creative person, as I have a wide range of skills throughout marketing and design. From SEO to content writing and everything in between!
I am also a keen photographer and videographer, skills I am looking forward to bringing to my new role.
In my free time I am currently training for my first marathon in September, and am also part of the local music scene. Something I look forward to getting involved in again when restrictions are fully lifted.
What experiences in Health marketing do you have?
I have worked in healthcare marketing since 2013 and have worked for a number of brands. My experience ranges from working for small, local companies to large corporations on London’s Harley Street.
Regardless of the size of the organisation, the patient always comes first, something I love about working in this sector.
How have you found working in this new COVID-19 world we find ourselves in?
For me it has taken away my ability to work closely with people face to face. I have had to adapt to working from home and not having the usual office environment I am used to.
At the start of the pandemic, I was part of a marketing team for a healthcare organisation that had been placed under an emergency UK NHS contract. We were tasked with keeping patients up to date with what was happening. This brought a number of challenges as messaging was changing daily and required us to work at a very fast pace.
COVID-19 has completely changed the way healthcare organisations work and whilst it has been challenging it has also brought a lot of new opportunities with it.
What made you want to join the team at Medicalchain/MyClinic?
What struck me most was the ambition of the team to make the platform a success. Everyone is dedicated to creating the best product possible and getting it out there for people to use.
Being part of such an ambitious team is something that really excites me.
What are you most excited about in the next 12 months?
Growth. This is a great opportunity for me to make an impact and help the brand grow. I also see this as a huge opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally.
The next 12 months will be very exciting and will hopefully bring great results.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to ask us questions and engage with our communications team. We do try our best to answer all of your questions.
