King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSHRC), a Saudi Arabian healthcare facility, has effectively established a digital credentialing platform for its patients. This technology, developed by KFSHRC’s Blockchain Lab, will allow healthcare professionals to obtain digital certificates on the blockchain.

In 2021, KFSHRC opened its Blockchain Lab for the first time. The hospital intended to utilize it to investigate blockchain use cases in the Kingdom. They also concentrated on adopting this technology for use in healthcare. The Lab established several potential use cases, but this is their first successful venture.

“KFSHRC is proud to be an early adapter, as this technology will disrupt the healthcare model in positive ways,” said the hospital’s CEO Majed Alfayyadh.

KFSHRC will securely issue, manage, track, and validate hospital credentials using this cutting-edge system. All of this will be achieved in a much more efficient, effective, and accessible manner. Doctors will be sent an encrypted email with instructions on accessing confirmed credentials on the blockchain. They may even download it immediately to their digital mobile wallets.

The debate over digital patient IDs is not new. The majority of conservation efforts have focused on the benefits of this technology for patients. Unfortunately, healthcare data is frequently fragmented and scattered across several healthcare systems. And this is quite inconvenient. Having personal and coverage information available at all times and throughout all phases of treatment offers a stress-free environment. It also prevents data theft. Furthermore, blockchain simplifies problems for healthcare practitioners and insurance providers.

Overall, the facility’s administration is overjoyed that theirs is the first institution in the country to use this novel and very helpful technology.
