Medicalchain Opens New Office in Switzerland

Since its foundation, Medicalchain has been growing rapidly and we are delighted to announce the official opening of our new office in Switzerland. We have a global vision and geographical expansion is necessary to achieve this.

Product Development continues to improve and we are working to our timeline for version 2 which is eagerly anticipated for the end of Q2 2019.

We are working extra hard to confirm contracts and are hopeful that our services will be available within the NHS as well as the private sector soon. will also be available on Android very soon.


Considering how difficult it can be to keep up with our progress, especially product development — we have created an interactive timeline on our website to update you clearly on our road to achieving our goals.
