MyBaby, a blockchain-based tool that records IVF development, has been launched by VeChain in collaboration with leading Shanghai-based Renji Hospital.
VeChain, an enterprise blockchain, has announced the introduction of “MyBaby,” a blockchain-based In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) service application, in collaboration with Shanghai’s Renji Hospital.
The initiative also involves a partnership with Vechain partner DNV, which will provide supply chain governance and product and digital assurance for the project.
MyBaby is the “first service” to connect third-party IVF data with blockchain technology, according to Vechain, supply-chain management, and smart contract platform:
“The cryptographically secured properties of blockchain technology create a secure and reliable environment and enhance the user experience in a way that is unprecedented in the IVF field.”
The MyBaby initiative promises to enhance the IVF procedure by allowing families to see all data linked with the growth of eggs into embryos traced on blockchain in real-time. The MyBaby app, according to VeChain, has the potential to reduce anxiety, despair, and stress connected with the IVF cycle.
All information and data trails from the IVF procedure, including imaging created by medical instruments through the birth of the zygote itself, will be uploaded to the VeChainThor blockchain as part of the MyBaby service, with the information available only to approved users of the MyBaby Application.
MyBaby’s benefits are diverse, according to the Medium article, with users being able to watch and follow the extraction, labeling, and scoring of fertilized eggs as well as the nurturing and preservation of embryos.
