HCi Viocare to develop proprietary Blockchain based system for handling client records and Sensing-technology data.

Glasgow, Scotland, Wednesday, January 31st, 2018.  HCi Viocare (OTCQB:VICA), is pleased to announce that its management, acknowledging the tremendous advantages of Blockchain technology, has decided to develop its own proprietary Blockchain based system for handling the sensitive client records in its Scottish Clinics subsidiary. Furthermore, the team will develop a proprietary Blockchain based system for handling and storing the data produced from the medical applications of its FlexisenseTM technology.

 

 

Christos Kapatos, HCi Viocare’s co-founder stated: “Blockchain technology is much more than just a way for crypto-currencies to function. We are convinced that it will soon become the standard way to log and handle all data that matter, be that for business contracts, real-estate transactions, medical records or anything else. It is the way forward and any company which doesn’t adapt early enough using its own resources, it is probably going to pay much more later on to migrate to a third party’s platform. Our Blockchain based system, will ensure that the data produced by our sensing technology in medical applications, are going to be stored and handled without anyone having the ability to tamper with them or violate the confidentiality of such personal information. In the case of clients’ records in our P&O clinic, it is our view that Insurance companies will very soon enforce such practices on the care givers, in order to acknowledge any compensation claims”.
