The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) will implement a blockchain solution based on the Hedera Hashgraph to monitor the storage of the COVID-19 vaccine, Cointelegraph reports.
The drugs used in the country to fight the coronavirus must be stored under strict conditions.
Everyware will provide the NHS with an appropriate solution to track the staging, distribution and administration of a vaccine.
In addition to software based on the Hedera blockchain network, the company uses its own equipment at medical facilities.
The Everyware Platform is built on Amazon Web Services EC2 cloud infrastructure and offers customers the ability to integrate with Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.
The corporate network Hedera Hashgraph is used to store and process data from IoT devices that control the conditions of the vaccine.
The blockchain is used to record the order of events in the vaccine supply chain and create temporary impressions. This approach is expected to simplify the exchange of data between suppliers, storage facilities and shipping companies.
Everyware initially provides a Hedera-based solution to a select group of NHS facilities in the South Warwickshire region. The vaccines will be tracked from production to use in local hospitals.
Recall that in mid-January, more than 340 fake ads for the sale of coronavirus vaccines for bitcoins were found on the darknet.
