DULUTH, Georgia, January 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc. ("MIHI" or the "Company") (OTC: MIHI) today announces that its future development efforts will include blockchain technology. The Company understands today's methods of protecting patient medical and financial data that is continually threatened by 'digital assassins' dedicated to finding weaknesses in systems for the purpose of stealing sensitive data and/or holding companies' hostage for return of data. This environment cannot continue to exist. MIHI sees blockchain, an immutable ledger of information that can be permissioned, shared and trusted, as a key part of the answer to solve these critical weaknesses.
The Company recently announced its endeavor into the Health Care Sharing Organizations (HCSO) marketplace and has determined the systems necessary to best capitalize and manage this marketplace will be blockchain centric. The Company expects other faith-based and ethics-based sharing organizations to incorporate the MIHI Blockchain Platform where appropriate security and exchange of data is a requisite to ensure patients, providers and payers are all able to benefit from this technology platform. This will make for a more efficient movement of secure data, resulting in lower transactional costs of moving data across a world-wide network. MIHI plans to release an initial version to support its own operations and then later migrate the application to allow third-party sharing organizations to utilize the platform under a transaction fee arrangement.
As information moves to patient portals that allow universal access to data across disparate medical systems in hospitals, physician offices, insurance companies, and employers, blockchain technology will enable the patient to finally be at the center of their care model and thereby providing them with the best system to provide protection and create trust between elements of their care continuum. This trust extends beyond borders and will eventually allow the company to accept foreign payments for telemedicine services across the world.
Arturo "Jake" Sanchez, MIHI CEO, stated, "We are at a beginning of a technological trend that will revolutionize how we use and share medical and financial information. For example, today's method of having patients fill out medical history forms will become outdated as patients will be able to electronically share their own virtual records and interface them to disparate medical record keeping systems. Everyone in the chain will have instant, controlled access to any changes in the data distributed across all members of the chain that can include other medical practitioners, insurance providers, CMS, drug manufacturers and other parties."
"Committing MIHI to blockchain development will insure that the medical data we move across the health care ecosystem can be trusted, secure and immutable and that our automated workflows will be a tremendous differentiator in a crowded market," concluded Mr. Sanchez.
