Cyprus Hospital Rolls Out A Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 Vaccine Certification on A VeChain Built Application
Cyprus based Mediterranean Hospital announced that it had administered the COVID-19 vaccine to 100 doctors and personnel through a blockchain-built app dubbed E-HCert. The hospital said that the first dose was administered on Jan 4, in what it terms as a ‘great step back to normalcy.’
Backed by the VechainThor blockchain, E-HCert was built in collaboration with digital healthcare solution provider I-Dante. It has been operational since mid-last year, with its first use case being the certification of COVID-19 test results. According to the announcement, this application was used by more than 8,000 people who visited Cyprus and took the COVID-19 test on arrival,
“The App was used by more than 8000 people that receive their results after having a COVID-19 RT PCR test upon their arrival in the International Airport of Larnaca in Cyprus.”
With the world now moving to the vaccine era, E-HCert plays yet another major role in the certification of administered COVID-19 vaccines. The Mediterranean Hospital doctors and personnel who were vaccinated received digital certificates via their E-HCert apps. Per the announcement post, this milestone marks a major step in transforming the healthcare industry via blockchain.
“Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus also announces that these 100 people received a digital certificate for their vaccination on their E-HCert App marking another step towards the digital transformation of the healthcare industry via VeChainThor Blockchain.”
Cyprus Mail has since reported that the E-HCert tech is set to be integrated by the Aretaeio Hospital in Nicosia.
