Full-service blockchain technology company Bitfury Group and Longenesis announced a partnership with radiology blockchain marketplace Medical Diagnostics Web or MDW to deliver next-Generation healthcare Blockchain.

Under the deal, Bitfury, Longenesis, a partnership between Bitfury Group and AI company Insilico Medicine, and MDW will create a next-generation platform. It will be used to maintain, share and secure medical imaging and diagnostics data.

Bitfury expects the deployment of the blockchain infrastructure, built on its Exonum private blockchain framework, to set new industry standards for healthcare blockchain implementation.

The digitization of trust that blockchain offers, paired with the medical potential of AI algorithms, has the ability to revitalize medical systems all over the world."
