Major South Korean Hospital to Use Blockchain Tech for Medical Information Services

One of the South Korea's largest hospitals has partnered with a local tech company to develop a medical services platform based on blockchain technology, according to the hospital’s official press release Nov. 12.

Myongji Hospital, located in the city of Goyang, South Korea, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Korean IT company BICube, which markets itself as a machine learning platform.

The two parties plan to use blockchain technology to create a healthcare information exchange system. According to the hospital’s release, the aim of the project is to “build a hybrid cloud [platform] that combines a public cloud and a private cloud.”

The medical information exchange service’s hybrid cloud functionality will allow patients to share sensitive medical data with other medical institutions upon authorization, without the data being stored centrally.
