Bitfury and Longenesis Partner with Medical Diagnostic Web to Deliver Next-Generation Healthcare Blockchain

Tech Sets New Industry Standards Today at HIMSS19

ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Bitfury Group and Longenesis today announced a partnership with
Medical Diagnostic Web (MDW) to bring some of the best implementations
in blockchain technology to MDW’s growing radiology marketplace.

The partnership between Bitfury, the world’s leading full-service
blockchain technology company, Longenesis, a startup that merges AI and
blockchain, and MDW radiology marketplace will create a next-generation
platform for maintaining, sharing and securing medical imaging and
diagnostic data. Deployment of this blockchain infrastructure is
expected to set new industry standards for healthcare blockchain

MDW is the first radiology blockchain platform designed to connect all
players in the medical imaging ecosystem to create an open and
transparent marketplace for image interpretation. It allows radiologists
to contract with imaging facilities and securely share patient data and
medical images such as X-rays and CT scans for interpretation.

The groundbreaking combination of new technologies, built on Bitfury’s
Exonum™ private blockchain framework, will take the security of
sensitive medical information to the next level. It will provide users
with a more robust and discrete environment, while allowing transactions
to be validated by nodes installed at a variety of respected sites,
using “anchoring” technology to increase trust in recorded transactions.

Longenesis’ state-of-the-art data management practices will ensure that
medical data, while recorded transparently via blockchain, is accessible
only by authorized parties in full compliance with HIPAA, GDPR and
“right to forget.”

Blockchain technology can strengthen patient data security by providing
a tamper-proof record of patient history while simultaneously providing
an avenue for doctors to more easily share information,” said Valery
Vavilov, CEO of Bitfury. “The digitization of trust that blockchain
offers, paired with the medical potential of AI algorithms, has the
ability to revitalize medical systems all over the world.”

This advanced new infrastructure, with baked-in data anonymization,
advanced encryption and user permissioning, complements MDW’s existing
immutable blockchain audit trails and tamper-proof records of patient
data that create a safe and transparent way for users to exchange data
and increase care quality, while improving efficiency and
interoperability along the care continuum.

We at Longenesis welcome how the medical data management industry is
adopting new approaches in data storage and analytics by leveraging both
the ultimate trust offered by blockchain and AI-powered data insights,
allowing users to extract more value from data sets,” said Garri Zmudze,
CEO of Longenesis. “A complete life data storage ecosystem should be
transparent, smart and equipped with advanced cryptography tools. Thus,
this is the blend we are building.”

The MDW marketplace is already successfully enabling radiology
stakeholders to forge new business relationships. Radiologists enjoy
immediate compensation for services, while radiology groups can access
as-needed resources to boost reading volume, decrease exam
turn-around-time and attract new clients. AI companies benefit through
access to the highly specialized annotated imaging datasets and raw
imaging data required to train and validate algorithms.

A partnership with these industry innovators will enable MDW
marketplace to provide the most advanced healthcare blockchain
technology available today,” said Michael Averbach, MDW CEO and
co-founder. “Our new hybrid private/public blockchain will provide the
best of both worlds — a transparent and flexible yet protected and
secure environment for medical data. We believe that together our
advanced technologies will pave the way for a new quality standard in
healthcare blockchain.”

The platform also helps solve many of today’s significant medical
imaging problems, including service access and delivery, results
communication and integration across the continuum of care.

MDW, Longenesis and Bitfury are announcing the partnership today at the
HIMSS 2019 Global Conference & Exhibition (booths 669 and 9000-147
Innovation Live).
