Ergo is delighted to announce our membership of the SimplyVital Health Nexus Blockchain consortium. Ergo are a hub for innovation excellence in Ireland especially in Healthcare. In the past two years, Ergo has secured funding in excess of €1.2 million from Enterprise Ireland to develop its Digital Platform, which has a commitment to investigate and research blockchain.
The focus of the consortium is to demonstrate the ability to securely share summary patient ehealth data using blockchain technologies in collaboration with clinical stakeholders. Ergo’s interest is in relation to medical data sharing for research trials.
We are aiming to produce a working smart contract proof of concept which will be used for reviewing the process, identifying technical, governance and legal challenges experienced, as well as opportunities to expand on this initial research into other usecases for blockchain in Healthcare.
This membership builds on our expertise through our successful partnership with FutureNeuro, funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). We’ve been collaborating to use our Digital Platform framework on the Epilepsy Lighthouse Project with its core aim being to improve the Ireland’s e-health infrastructure.
