HealthCarePoint collaborates with Exochain on blockchain ID management
HealthCarePoint, a health care networking technology company, has teamed with Exochain to integrate a blockchain identity management solution with BlueCloud, a professional network for healthcare professionals and organizations, according to a press release.
Exochain will register users, companies and systems associated with BlueCloud on a blockchain. This will ensure that users participating in FDA-regulated clinical trials and other activities have a valid identity in the system, according to the release.
"There is a lot of buzz around blockchain being used in healthcare and clinical research without any substantive proof or value to the industry. We feel it's important that the industry understands not only the opportunities and ways to modernize the industry using proven and valid blockchain based business models like Exochain, but also demonstrating that such blockchain models actually work, bringing value to the industry — for the benefit of the patient," BlueCloud President and founder Al O. Pacino said in the release.
