Dubai telecom company du to develop blockchain solution for patient safety

Wed, 16 Jan 2019, 09:33 am UTC

Dubai-based telecom company du has entered into a partnership with blockchain healthcare solutions company Dhonor HealthTech to develop the UAE’s first blockchain solution for patient-centric safety verification, Unlock-BC reported.

The project would mark the latest use case of its Blockchain Platform as a Service (BPaaS), which was announced in October 2018 in collaboration with ConsenSys.

du's BPaaS is a cloud-native blockchain infrastructure that can provide private blockchain networks with a high level of customization, support multiple consensus algorithms with monitoring, managing capabilities and smart contract capabilities. It will enable users to create blockchain networks, deploy and run their use cases, using intuitive user interface (UI). It supports Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric v1.3 frameworks.

“BPaaS provides immense scalability, compatibility and cost efficiencies, but it also ensures high security and transparency of sensitive data,” Jihad Tayara, Vice President Business Development and Partnerships- New Business & Innovation, du, said. “…we are proud to implement the next deployment of BPaaS within the healthcare sector where it will contribute towards saving countless lives and raising the quality of care that patients receive.”

The new solution will be designed on the BPaaS which will help provide authenticity and compliance traceability. In addition, blockchain technology would help ensure immutability of data, thereby giving various stakeholders access to reliable information, such the origin, state, and viability of use, for medical products.

According to the report, the solution is based on NFC tags standards that will help verify the authenticity of blood bags and pharmaceutical products across the medical supply chain.

In this way, the solution will ensure patients' safety and address the problems of counterfeit medications and wait times for trusted blood bags faced by patients.

“Through Dhonor’s core business tenet as an advanced patient safety platform, our ability to empower patients through innovative technological developments will be significantly enhanced with du’s BPaaS,” said Wassim Merheby, Dhonor Healthtech, CEO and Co-Founder.

“The need for transparency and visibility to verify the authenticity and condition of the medicines that patients’ lives depends on is essential. By adopting blockchain into our everyday operations, this will be an important step towards the digitisation of the UAE’s healthcare sector and revolutionise patient-centricity.”
