Blockchain-based medical supply chain company MediConnect has signed a partnership with enterprise application software development firm, Rishabh Software.
The partnership will see the two companies build a pilot for its healthcare platform, which will manage the supply chain for ordering personal protective equipment (PPE).
The platform will reliably trace the source of manufactured goods to prevent the distribution of counterfeit PPE and other pharmaceutical products, while ensuring that demand is met by streamlining the different types of workflow events and documentations.
The importance of PPE has been particularly relevant this year in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has locked down the majority of the developed world since February.
With the new partnership, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, key workers and patients will use Mediconnect to securely share end-to-end transaction records, which are verified and transacted using MEDI tokens.
