Product Development

We are pleased to announce that our first product, the application is now live, you can download the application through the Apple App store if you are residing within the UK, download here. is a subsidiary of Medicalchain that provides telemedicine services to patients who are in need of an online consultation, with more functionalities to come. 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. 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 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 application, we are also working on the development of the Health Platform which we aim to incorporate into the 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.
