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.
