SAN FRANCISCO, CA – (August 29, 2017) –The Patientory Foundation is delighted to announce that it has joined forces with Hyperledger to further advance healthcare and the blockchain ecosystem. As a partner in the new program, amidst recent partnerships with Dash and Blockchain Web Services provider BlockCypher, the Patientory Foundation will integrate its current blockchain with Hyperledger’s open source code.

“As one of the first companies to bring blockchain to healthcare, we are delighted to join Hyperledger,” said Patientory Founder and CEO Chrissa McFarlane. “With cyber attacks projected to cost hospitals $305 billion USD by 2021 and medical information already worth ten times more than credit card numbers on the deep web, the need for secure patient data is critical. We are eager to collaborate with Hyperledger’s broader community to develop the technology further and form relationships that can help us advance the implementation of blockchain in the health space.”
