When and where is it on?
MediChain will be hosting their first event in Kings Cross, London on Tuesday 27th February at 6:30pm – 9:00pm. It will be hosted at the impact hub, a coworking and events space in London.
What is MediChain?
MediChain is a Medical Big-Data Platform for storing and linking medical data to eventually harness the power of big data for augmented medical decision-making. With MediChain, users will be a part of a unique project set to revolutionise global health. Not only will they have control of their own health records, but they will also be in control of sharing this data to researchers and external bodies to help find cures for the diseases that affect the user.
MediChain stands out from other medical blockchain companies through its core focus on big-data. The MediChain team consists of both experienced technologists and healthcare specialists, with team members highly experienced in building startup businesses. MediChain’s CEO, Dr Mark Baker, has founded a number of companies before and worked as a medical data research scientist at Cambridge and Oxford university. Dr Baker has designed, consulted and mentored in various data-driven medical technology companies and establishments including Harvard University and Hoffmann-La Roche AG in the space of blockchain, big data, security, algorithms and behavior. This differentiates them from other medical blockchains that are often primarily being lead by healthcare professionals.
How many years has it been going?
Dr Mark Baker, MediChain CEO and founder, has been hosting events via his digital innovation group since 2013. The Digital Innovation Group is always evolving and previous events have covered FinTech, digital strategy, hackathons and startup accelerator events. This season’s theme will be blockchain and cryptocurrency and for this event they will be co-hosting with the London Healthcare Blockchain.
