This edition marks the start of the new year, so from all of us at Medicalchain — we would like to wish you all a happy new year!
We look forward to the upcoming months as we will see our plans come to fruition, to be able to present the MyClinic.com 2.0 app, and also the initial release of the HealthPassport application.
A message from our CEO, Dr Abdullah Albeyatti:
“Coming to the end of 2018 has felt like the end of a sprint. We have been non-stop since we first launched Medicalchain and have leapt from one achievement to the next, with so many milestones being met along the way we often overlook all that we have achieved. From nurturing an international community to completing a successful ICO and launching our first beta application, a world’s first for telemedicine and blockchain.
However, we are not aiming for a quick sprint finish and are already looking forward to the marathon ahead by setting the agenda for future healthcare, leading conversations about transparency, blockchain technology and the utility of cryptocurrency and most importantly, being the advocate for patients worldwide. Above all else, we must facilitate patients to be more involved in their healthcare and decision making by having easy access to their records.
Our team has already grown in strength and numbers and we have several offices now across the UK as well as in Switzerland. We continue to work hard with like-minded organisations on partnerships, joint venture agreements and large health institutions. I am confident that 2019 will be a defining year for Medicalchain and I would like to thank our community for supporting us through thick and thin. Our team has been resolute in their approach to continuing to deliver on our ‘road map’ promises and I am proud to have them join me in trying to achieve this.
Please continue to support us as I strongly believe we are close to making a real impact and I for one am excited for the year ahead.”

We are very pleased to be able to show some preliminary screenshots of the HealthPassport application (note that these images are subject to change):
The HealthPassport is an innovative solution to store and utilise patient health data in accordance with open standards — with the added benefit of blockchain technology.
The platform is designed to empower patients with the autonomy over their own data, to allow them to view their records, share them with relevant health practitioners, family and friends, as well as personally audit who has gained access.
Alongside this, the open standards of storage allow for greater flexibility, with interoperability between the vast array of health data systems used within the sector today. The platform can be used in general practice, hospitals or in social care, as well as incorporating health data from other sources such as wearables — health monitors and IoT devices. This provides patients with a single, secure point of access to their health information and control over how it is used.
The HealthPassport is also designed so that it can be implemented with ease by any supplier wanting to securely store, manage and make use of health data in their own systems. There is currently no other solution available that does this!
