The blockchain company VeChain, in partnership with Shanghai Renji Hospital, announced the launch of an intelligent health project called “MyBaby,” a blockchain-based in vitro fertilization (IVF) service application.
The project also includes the collaboration with DNV, VeChain partner Working with the platform to provide supply chain governance along with digital and product assurance for the project.
Vechain, a platform for supply chain management and smart contracts, said in a post that MyBaby is the “first service” to combine third-party IVF data with blockchain technology:
The cryptographic security properties of blockchain technology create a secure and reliable environment and enhance the user experience in a way unprecedented in the IVF field.
The project MyBaby aims to improve the IVF process so that families can transparently see all data related to the development of egg cells in embryos that is tracked on the blockchain. VeChain believes the MyBaby app is able to provide relief from anxiety, depression, and stress related to the IVF cycle.
As part of the MyBaby service All information and traces of data from the IVF process, including “the images taken from the medical devices to the delivery of the zygote itself,” are uploaded to the VeChainThor blockchain, and the information is only available to authorized users of the MyBaby application.
“The advantages of MyBaby are manifold: they allow users to see and track the collection, labeling and evaluation of the fertilized eggs, as well as the cultivation and preservation of the embryos., it says in the middle post.
The project claims it provides additional security for sensitive and private medical informationby reducing the number of “intermediaries between the generation and delivery of data”.
This isn’t the first time Renji Hospital has tried to incorporate blockchain technology since In 2019, it teamed up with VeChain and DNV to bring the “world’s first blockchain-based intelligent tumor treatment center” to market..
