A Cypriot hospital keeps the first 100 distribution records of the Covid-19 vaccine on Vechain.
Vechain is a decentralized supply chain as well as a data management platform.
This hospital would be the first to store the medical records of the Covid-19 vaccine on the blockchain.
Tracking records in a secure and unchanging manner is important when it comes to health records. This hospital would be the first to store the medical records of the Covid-19 vaccine on a blockchain.
With the growth of Bitcoin , Ethereum and other “classic” cryptocurrencies, we are forgetting some useful blockchain applications .
One of these could be VeChain , a decentralized supply chain management platform. This particular use case has become more important following the onset of the global pandemic in Wuhan, China.
The VeChain Foundation confirmed the news via its Twitter account:
The first 100 COVID-19 vaccination records from medical staff at the Mediterranean Hospital in Cyprus are now securely stored on the public blockchain #VeChain. Thanks to this technology, governments and individuals are assured of the quality and validity of the results.
The first 100 COVID-19 vaccination records for medical personnel at The Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus are now securely stored on the #VeChain public blockchain.
Is storing medical records on blockchain useful?
The medical field probably seeks to maintain accurate medical records, especially when the world is faced with a massive virological threat never seen before.
If an organization decides to keep its records in a distributed and decentralized register, it can theoretically guarantee the “quality and validity” of the results. Third parties cannot manipulate immutable blockchains.
VeChain’s VeThor platforms offer a variety of tracing methods, such as temperature monitoring.
Indeed, the Covid-19 vaccine must remain at a specific low temperature to remain effective. According to Moderna, the temperatures are even lower than what a refrigerator can provide.
Could decentralized vaccine tracing ensure that they stay at the right temperature before they are distributed? This is the goal, but it remains to be proven.
