Doctors247 Online Empowered by Blockchain
ATLANTA (December 19, 2019) — Patientory Association, an industry-leading pioneer and global nonprofit healthcare member organization for the adoption of emerging technologies in the healthcare industry, acceptsMedical City Online, as the newest member of the Patientory Association to launch Doctors247 Online, telemedicine software empowered by blockchain technology. Patientory Association will facilitate the implementation of Medical City Online’s telemedicine technology and the PTOYNetwork HIPAA compliant blockchain storage network.
As Telemedicine practices become more common, stringent control is needed to give the patient confidence in the service. With Doctors247 Online, the goal is to impart control of data to the patient who can control, block, release, delete, and archive at will using the blockchain’s conventional methodology of “smart contract” during or before a live teleconsultation.
“Our partnership takes both of our areas of expertise and combines them into one product,” said Chrissa McFarlane, CEO, and founder of Patientory, Inc and President of the Patientory Association “What we are creating is the future of healthcare delivery with the necessary components to address privacy, security and interoperability.”
With Doctors247 Online, conventional blockchain technology will be connected seamlessly with the telemedicine software across the necessary interception points where data security falls into a sensitive domain. A hashtag is created with a date/time stamp for any layer of data transaction between doctor and patient as an immutable record, and it becomes part of the EMR (Electronic Medical Record).
The partnership allows for a patient’s medical records security to be enhanced, data management issues improved, regulation requirements of data encryption met, and together telemedicine software is wrapped with blockchain technology. Conventional Blockchain Technology will be connected seamlessly with the Telemedicine Software across the necessary Interception Points, where data security falls in sensitive domain.

Many veteran healthcare organizations use Patientory to discuss their technology solutions and consulting services. Patientory, Inc. the founding member of the Association is the first-mover in distributed App (dApp) and blockchain-based software solutions for healthcare that address the complex challenges faced by today’s healthcare industry.
