South Korean Hospitals Now Make Use of Blockchain Thanks to Longenesis and Bitfury’s Exonum
- Longenesis has signed individual agreements with Hanshin Medipia and Infinity Care that will allow the two medicare firms to make use of its data/record maintenance blockchain system.
- In the past, Longenesis has signed two other similar partnerships with Incheon-based Gil Medical Center and Terragene.
As per an all new statement released by a spokesperson for Longenesis — a Latvian fintech service provider — the firm has entered into a partnership with two major S.Korean healthcare providers. As a result of this, Longenesis will provide Hanshin Medipia Medical Centre and Infinity Care access to its blockchain-enabled ‘medical-consent platform’.
For those of our readers who may not be aware of Longenesis’ illustrious past, the firm was established a couple of years back with the goal of providing “modular blockchain solutions” to medical providers all over the world.
Using its novel operational framework, Longenesis’ medical system has the ability to supply its clients with everything from user interfaces for patient interaction to medical recordkeeping systems. However, over the past year or so, the firm has narrowed down its primary focus on the creation of ‘medical-consent technologies’.
Lastly, as is to be expected with a platform such as this, all of the data stored within Longenesis’ aforementioned system is linked, verifiable and auditable.
More On The Matter
In a recent interview with Denis Bazinov — an executive working for Longenesis — it was revealed that the firm’s new system is ideal for pharmaceutical companies and research institutions because it allows them to access a host of metadata that might be directly related to their immediate needs and requirements. This can not only make trial participation easier but also make the evaluation of various drugs much more streamlined and hassle-free for scientists.
Additionally, Bazinov was also quoted as saying:
“What our platform offers is a transparent chain from the patient through to the hospital,” Bazinov said. “Our desire is to make more information available to the researchers, who now face problems of quantity and quality.”
Other Key Information Worth Highlighting
Longenesis’ platform makes use of a decentralized framework (called Exonum) that has been devised by Bitfury. Not only that, the service has been designed in such a way that it is compatible with existing EU and US healthcare standards.
Exonum is considered to be extremely secure, transparent and auditable in its design. Not only that, it has been coded using a programming language called ‘Rust’.
