    Solomon has a growing passion for writing, this propelled him to keenly work on Eagles News Media for about two years before delving into the cryptocurrency and Blockchain industry he finds more interesting. He worked as a crypto Journalist and Editor at NewsLogical before joining Herald Sheets, owing to the priceless experience he has accumulated since he became a contributor in the crypto community.




    VeChain (VET) has recently sealed a partnership with I-Dante to create a blockchain-enabled medical data management platform for health care providers in Cyprus.

    According to the report, the medical data management platform is named The E-NewHealthLife, and it’s aimed at enabling digital transformation in the healthcare sector.

    The report also stated that the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus, a hospital under the General Healthcare System of the Republic of Cyprus (GHS) is the first hospital in the country to adopt the new application.

    The newly created application powered by blockchain has the capability to serve the hospitals internally, as well as the end-users.

    The report added that the full compliance of The E-NewHealthLife app with the GDPR (EU’s General Data Protection Regulation) gives the owners complete control over their personal profile and medical records. Their agreement can simply be used to prove their respective health status.

    The application will be used by hospital management and staff to collect and record information on patients. The data packs are owned by the patient, and cannot be shared with third parties without the consent of the owners.

    Blockchain’s Response to Challenges in Modernizing Healthcare Sector

    Attempts to modernize the technological infrastructure in the healthcare sector globally have been faced with obstacles over the past decades.

    The cited problems are related to the administrative and technical difficulties in the process of extracting data from various digital record systems, the lack of collaboration between different departments and health authorities, and others.

    So, considering the solution offered by blockchain technology, its proven record in terms of secured data storage and efficient information sharing between multiple parties, have made it the best option to bring the expected result.

    The E-NewHealthLife Web app is powered by VeChain ToolChain™. The Digital Healthcare Passport is an encrypted NFC Card that can be assigned to any patient of the hospital.

    Regarding the NFC Cards, the report says:

    “NFC Cards will allow the patients to identify themselves automatically at the Emergency Room registration desk, check their queue on mobile phone, manage their own medical records safely with the E-NewHealthLife Web App, and share their data securely with the hospital.”
