checklist 3222079 640UAE telecom company Du has announced its latest Blockchain Platform as a Service (BPaaS) use case by entering into a collaboration with Dhonor HealthTech to build the UAE’s first Patient Safety Blockchain Solution

The company stated that the BPaaS use case will empower and enrich lives through the country’s first patient-centric safety verification blockchain solution.

This builds on the telco’s proud legacy of delivering life-changing technological solutions and will support the nation’s progress towards achieving the UAE Blockchain strategy 2021 in creating a paperless economy and digitally transform the country, it added

The company noted that the solution is designed on du’s Blockchain Platform as a service (BPaaS) in order to provide authenticity and compliance traceability that delivers the transparency and trusts that has eluded the healthcare industry.

With immutable data, it has the potential to give all stakeholders access to reliable information, including the origin, state, and viability of use for medical products. The solution is based on NFC tags standards that enable access to blockchain solution in order to verify if blood bags and pharmaceutical products are authentic across the medical supply chain.

Jihad Tayara, vice-president business development and partnerships-New Business and Innovation, du, said, “BPaaS provides immense scalability, compatibility and cost efficiencies, but it also ensures high security and transparency of sensitive data. In the healthcare sector, protecting patient data is paramount; hence we are proud to implement the next deployment of BPaaS within the healthcare sector where it will contribute towards saving countless lives and raising the quality of care that patients receive.”

Wassim Merheby, Dhonor Healthtech, CEO and co-founder, commented, “Through Dhonor’s core business tenet as an advanced patient safety platform, our ability to empower patients through innovative technological developments will be significantly enhanced with du’s BPaaS. The need for transparency and visibility to verify the authenticity and condition of the medicines that patients’ lives depend on is essential.”

“By adopting blockchain into our everyday operations, this will be an important step towards the digitisation of the UAE’s healthcare sector and revolutionise patient-centricity,” he concluded.
