UNODC and Doc.com launch a Blockchain telemedicine program in Eastern Africa
Despite the overwhelming market that has seen a very small growth despite the closing of the year, the technology behind cryptocurrency has seen an incredible expansion. Blockchain has penetrated almost every field in recent years and has now taken its first steps in medicine.
UNODC, the United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime, has partnered with Doc.com, a telemedicine blockchain and telepsychology company. The goal of the partnership is to promote and expand the free basic health service throughout East Africa, the report says.
A representative of the regional office of the UNODC for Eastern Africa (ROEA), Amado Philip de Andres, confirmed the news in an official letter on December 20, 2018. De Andres wrote that the organization is willing to cooperate in a new partnership and is planning to introduce both company platforms in the region by the second quarter of 2019.
A blockchain-based telemedicine and telepsychology platform, Doc.com offers its users access to healthcare professionals and advice 24 hours a day. Docademic, the company behind the platform, was founded in Mexico by former medical students who have patented the basic method of the free basic health service.
Tokenised medical assistance
Although operating in 20 countries and with almost 130,000 customers using telemedicine services, Doc.com is not yet a household name. The data shown on the company's website also showed that the telepsychology platform doc.com "Emotions" has amassed almost 70,000 users to date.
The company data and the health care service are supported by the MTC token compatible with ERC20. MTC is currently open for trading in the Coinbene and Kucoin exchanges based in Singapore. Docademic has launched the token as a means of motivating users to exchange their data with the benefits provided by third parties.
The economics of Docademic ICO tokens were calculated based on the funds the company would have to expand in the United States and Europe, with the initial pre-sale price of the coin reaching 0.000035ETH.
And while telemedicine is not a new phenomenon, with many employers in the United States offering telemedicine coverage as part of their benefits package, the model to offer free basic health care to consumers has remained unused.
According to the company's press release, Doc.com has been able to stop the business benefits sector by offering significantly lower prices to employers than current market prices and no co-payment for consultation for employees or employers.
