IOST he has announced a new association with a Japanese university to spread their blockchain and allow it to be used by a new medical platform.
As you can read from the press release, this partnership was made possible by Japanese Medical Health Tech Venture Pracs to develop an IOST blockchain-based medical platform to record clinical information in an immutable and transparent way.
The data They speak for themselves and show that expenses for data management facilities and platforms will exceed 1.6 billion by 2025 and the blockchain lends itself well in this area because it is necessary. record millions of patient data while still having the ability to access anywhere and fast.
IOST is on the front line in the dissemination of this technology and is also active in various projects, such as recent related to NFT (non-expendable tokens) precisely to promote the creating this type of token on your blockchain; IOST has also recently shipped in the gaming sector.
As for the Prac JapaneseThis association was born in 2017 by a few entrepreneurial students supported by the Japanese University of Kinki and has specialized in software development and precisely in the marketing of very detailed reports on various diseases (FAP PASSPORT) and the use of the family.

Other blockchain-based medical platforms
However, this is not the first healthcare project involving blockchain technology.
Medicalchain, a company based in London, is doing similar work on Ethereum, just like a private clinic in Saint Moritz.
