On Wednesday, MHW learned that eWellness Healthcare Corporation – a provider of the state of the art PHZIO Platform for the physical therapy and telehealth markets — plans to move its PHZIO platform to Blockchain in order to create higher security and better health data interoperability.
Curtis Hollister CTO for eWellness provided a statement to media explaining the reasoning for the move.
“Our PHZIO platform is already Tokenized,” Hollister says, “so the move to Blockchain is the obvious next step in the evolution of our PHZIO treatment platform. This Blockchain upgrade is anticipated to be completed no later than August 2018. One of the benefits of this upgrade is it will provide us with the ability to provide insurance companies with a digital confirmation that a patient completed their PT sessions, thus reducing patient fraud.”
More information about the move is expected in the days and weeks ahead.
