MediConnect Completes PoC to Record Medication Through Supply Chain

MediConnect, a blockchain startup, has completed the workflow for the Proof-of-Concept (PoC) designed to record medications through the supply chain and started began integration of online pharmacy UK Meds’ processes to its platform.

Recording Medication Through The Supply Chain

It has been reported that on September 26, MediConnect established a foundation and methodology for proof of concept finalization, which will authorize recording and managing of prescription medication through the supply chain — from manufacturer to end-users.

However, in 2020, MediConnect is also preparing and planning to complete a pilot scheme, which includes up to 10 participants. As part of the pilot, MediConnect is going to incorporate online pharmacy UK Meds’ processes into its blockchain-based platform, allowing recording products through its supply chain and preventing the misuse of prescription medications.

Blockchain in Healthcare

Earlier this year, the Government of Uganda partnered with MediConnect to record counterfeit drugs in the country. Similar to UK Meds’ case, the blockchain-based platform authorizes the recording of prescription medication, thus identifying counterfeit drugs and preventing their distribution in the pharmaceutical supply chain.

However, the potential of blockchain technology in the healthcare and supply chain sectors is identified by other world’s governments and institutions. Most recently, the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Health and Prevention launched a blockchain system for recording and sharing healthcare data.

Likewise, Nebula Genomics, a Tech startup presented anonymous genetic testing earlier in September, authorizing clients to buy whole genome sequencing and provide saliva samples without the need to share personal data such as their name, address or credit card number.
