Blockchain For Hospitals: Document Distribution Platform Announces Key Partnerships

Aston[1] has created a Blockchain and security solution for decentralized document authentication and distribution. The system keeps documents on a main Blockchain, but stores edits and updates on side chains to enhance security and speed of delivery.

At BlockShow Asia[2] last month, the company’s head of sales, Kiyoung Tack, announced a partnership with Korean hospitals, as well as with a Blockchain solutions platform.

Per Mr. Tack’s presentation, Aston has recently signed a substantial contract with a network of nine hospitals in Korea to provide document protection services[3] for their patients.

An estimated 180,000 patients will be involved in the new document management system, meaning that the company will be providing protection for upwards of 6.5 mln pages of documents per month.

The connection provides an immediate use case for the Aston platform, prior to the completion of its ICO, which began Dec. 18 and will conclude Dec. 24.

Additionally, the company made a substantial announcement at the show regarding a strategic partnership with Hybridblock[4], a multi-tiered Blockchain education and investment platform. According to Tack, the partnership will focus on creating a new global cryptocurrency exchange.

Held in Singapore, BlockShow Asia[5] saw 1500 Blockchain professionals and enthusiasts gather to share the latest innovations and insights in the industry. In addition to including Tack’s presentation, the show provided a venue for 67 speakers from a host of countries.

During the show, twelve new ICOs launched raising a total of $40 mln to date. The show also included the ICOscar event — a startup competition powered by Waves[6] and Crypto Bazar[7] with a $20,000 prize.
