Labchain | A lab without fuss
Blockchain technology is also of great value in the medical world. DDQ proves this with the development of Labchain, the first true open source medical blockchain solution in the Netherlands.
Hospital labs currently work with documents for blood analyzes that have to be retyped at various points in the process. The results are then sent by post from lab to lab. This is an error-prone process.
Lab chain: innovation
Together with the UMC Maastricht, DDQ devised ‘Labchain’, a plug & play box that makes paperwork superfluous. Moreover, it can be connected to any common laboratory information system. With Labchain, lab results are securely transported between laboratories using blockchain technology.
The development and testing of Labchain is a solid first step in setting up processes more efficiently in hospital environments, where advanced technologies such as blockchain are still in their infancy, but can be of great value.
Plus Projects has successfully applied for funding for this project from the SIDN Fund, which supports groundbreaking projects at the intersection of technology and society.
