Enterprise blockchain VeChain reportedly disclosed details of the release of a blockchain-powered smart medical care initiative – “MyBaby”, in collaboration with Shanghai’s Renji Hospital.
Specifically, “MyBaby” reportedly operates as a In-Vitro fertilization (IVF) service application, run on blockchain, and is a collaborative work between VeChain, Renji Hospital and DNV – a VeChain partner, currently offering supply chain governance, as well as product and digital assurance for the initiative.
Vechain – an entity specialising in smart contracts and supply chain management – reportedly revealed that MyBaby is “the first service”, able to utilize both third-party IVF data with blockchain features.
“The cryptographically secured properties of blockchain technology create a secure and reliable environment and enhance the user experience in a way that is unprecedented in the IVF field.”
The MyBaby reportedly has a goal of enhancing the IVF process, via offering data transparency for the related blockchain-traceable development of eggs into embryos, to family members.
VeChain reportedly expects that the project will assist in easing anxiety, depression and stress that come with the IVF cycle.
As part of the MyBaby offerings, every information and data trail from the IVF process, including “imagery produced by medical tools to the delivery of the zygote itself”, will be made visible via the VeChainThor blockchain – where only authorized personnel are able to access.
“MyBaby’s benefits are multifaceted, allowing users to view and track the extraction, labeling, and scoring of fertilized eggs as well as the cultivation and preservation of embryos”.
The project reportedly claimed to offer enhanced security for sensitive and private medical data, via limiting the number of “intermediaries between production and delivery of data.”
