Mexican Medical Firm Uses Blockchain for COVID Tests

Medical services company MDS Mexico uses blockchain technology to authenticate the instant Covid-19 test results.

According to iProUP news, MDS Mexico has launched a new digital platform that allows patients to access results online and using a QR code. The QR code can be scanned to verify the results and access the patient’s vaccination history on the MDS Mexico blockchain.

MDS also uses blockchain to secure clinical trial results, protect patient privacy, and prevent falsification of covid test results.

The test results uploaded to the MDS blockchain also include the cryptographic signature of the doctor who verified the test result.

MDS is not the first organization in the world to use blockchain to digitize Covid test results. In August, the blockchain industry in Australia similarly pushed for a blockchain-based vaccine registry to stop the spread of fake COVID-19 vaccine passports on the Internet.
