A strategic accomplice of HEX venture and a driving health services IT organization, Tplus has marked the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Yonsei University Health System. Both companies have joined hands with the aim to research together on the blockchain-based Medical Radiation Dose Management System.
TPLUS has built up an analytic/therapeutic imaging gadget called ‘Dosetracker.’ For the first time in Korea, this kind of device has been developed that oversees the dosage of medical radiation and gives user-centric services to medical workers while lessens the uneasiness of patients about radiation exposure.
As per the medium blog post,
“Dosetracker can manage radiation dose by patient, device and diagnostic check-ups and can be linked with nonstandard devices.”
Various major hospitals in Korea already implemented the DoseTracker and these hospitals are Yonsei University Medical Center, Chaum, and Gyeongsang National University Changwon Hospital, National Health Insurance Service Ilsan Hospital, etc.
TPLUS will check the viability of Artificial Intelligence-based Organ Dose program which was created by Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital at Yonsei University Medical Center and will coordinate in the advancement of the platform.
A TPLUS worker said,
“Through the MOU, we hope to set up the decentralized framework that can successfully manage the radiation dosage of the patient and also medical establishments.”
He further added that the organization would devote their best attempts to create medical solutions for the formation of an advanced therapeutic environment by connecting the local and overseas medical associations through blockchain tech.
A Yonsei Hospital Medical Center staff said,
“There have been considerable interest and various attempts to implement blockchain on the medical industry but haven’t been achieved yet.”
The medical center is planning to apply blockchain on medical radiation dose management which is less difficult than other medicinal data. The medical center will analyze its adequacy and will change the medical data which is stored in the hospital information system into a decentralized blockchain platform.
