Rational Surgical Solutions Partners With Blockdrive To Add Blockchain Technology To Rati-Fi® Informed Consent Patient Education Platform
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rational Surgical Solutions is pleased to announce that it is the first company in the healthcare information technology space to offer a Blockchain process for confirmation of informed consent for surgical or medical interventions. Over the past year, the application of Blockchain technology in the Healthcare sector has experienced significant traction and endorsement, as "Blockchain technology (…) holds the potential to save billions of dollars by optimizing current workflows and disintermediating some high-cost gatekeepers." ("Blockchain Technology in Global Healthcare, 2017-2025," Frost & Sullivan, June 2017.)
"I have been fascinated with the potential of Blockchain technology in healthcare information technology," says Dr. Jonathan Fialkov, CEO and Founder of Rational Surgical Solutions. He goes on to say, "There is tremendous pressure on healthcare institutions of all sizes to improve security, reduce costs, and increase transaction performance, especially around patient data, all while providing an outstanding patient experience. Blockdrive's Blockchain technology was the logical next addition to our Rati-Fi platform."
Blockdrive is a private blockchain platform hosted in the cloud that stores data using advanced cryptography. Transaction records cannot be altered in any way and data cannot be hacked. Backup data is instantly available in cases of data corruption and server outage.

"Adding Blockchain capability to their Rati-Fi platform is one of the best use cases for this technology in the healthcare industry we have seen thus far."
