UK Medical Group entered into partnership with the Blockchain platform

This program will provide patients access to telemedicine and the opportunity to pay in crypto, reported on March 6.

According to the report, this partnership makes The Groves the first British medical practice to use Blockchain and accept crypto payments for medical services.

The Groves consists of 4 general practitioners with more than 1,000 private patient families and 30,000 registered patients, and will begin using the pilot program in July 2018 with Hyperledger Blockchain technology from Medicalchain.

Keeping and recording patient health records on theBlockchain will allow organizations, such as medical institutions, researchers and health insurers, to request permission to access the patient file to record their own services in a digital ledger. Medicalchain has worked with Civic to use its secure platform for identification to check doctors and their work licenses.

The Medicalchain pilot will create a free patient wallet to fully monitor their medical records and telemedicine services. GP video consultations will be available to patients using the Medicalchain pilot. Patients can pay for medical services with cryptocurrency, and users will be "stimulated" to pay for any telemedicine services with MedTokens, the Medicalchain’s cryptocurrency.


After the cyber attack of WannaCry in May 2017, which crippled much of the National Health Service in England, City University London and the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur began working together on a consortium to protect health systems against cybercrime through the architecture of Blockchain.
