STA, 1 April 2018 - Insurance company Adriatic Slovenica has entered a strategic partnership with Iryo, a blockchain startup focusing on participatory healthcare. The Slovenian startup is currently working with a US NGO providing health care to refugees in the Middle East in allowing them to access their medical records anywhere.
The insurance company has said in a press release that one of the biggest wishes of both companies is to establish a private medical centre with a broad range of medical and health services.
Iryo is working to change health care so as to allow patients better access to their own medical records through their mobile devices.
Technologies such as blockchain, zero-knowledge data storage and openEHR will allow the highest possible data security to those using the Iryo protocol.
The startup has recently partnered up with Tying Vines, an NGO that started Walk with Me, project providing health care and education to refugees in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Djibouti.
Iryo's mobile application allows patients to access their health data, which is a significant challenge for refugees, who can now take their medical records with them wherever they go.
