Witty Health Inc., has launched a cancer decision-making tool to ascertain if a particular drug prescribed for a patient is improving their condition. The Oncology Blockchain company has revealed that this is a tool that will help to enhance the level of medical care given to cancer patients.
Blockchain-based Tool to Enable Oncologists Create Case Studies
OncoPower is the name of the tool, and it is based on Blockchain Technology. It allows oncologists to enter certain information that will not be linked to them. This will be information such as drugs used for treatment, cancer type, lines of therapy, and many more. Within a matter of minutes, the OncoPower will return a result after accessing each of these data. It will also compare it to the patient’s specific cancer and stage.
The results will help oncologists to conclude if prescriptions are leading to the patient’s improved state of health. The doctor can then use the tool to make comparisons between their proposed treatment plan with that of their peer’s expertise. All of this is to ensure that the treatment will be safe for patients and also lead to their restored health.
Rating the Effectiveness of Drugs Through Case Studies
Karthik Koduru MD, Witty Health Co-Founder and Chief Oncologist noted OncoPower would enable oncologists to publish case studies. They will be able to rate how effective a drug is, and this rating is based on their real-world usage. Therefore, it will be beneficial to anyone involved in the “cancer care value chain”. These are the patients, pharmacists, drug discoverer, amongst others.
According to the Chief Oncologist;
This drug rating aims to improve efficiency, delivery of care, and outcomes by providing patient specific and data-driven smart treatment options to Oncologists.”
Blockchain Technology’s Application in HealthCare
We’ve also made reports on a disease prediction tool from the company ICONLOOP. This tool is also based on blockchain technology. It is cable of forecasting a person’s state of health three years from now. The Lifelong Healthy Life tool as it is called will allow people to have more control over their health information.
For more Blockchain-based tools designed for health, a Spanish company is also trying to ensure that the chicken consumed by people is as healthy as possible. Therefore, the company has designed a system that keeps track of chickens that have not been treated with antibiotics. These are known to be more healthy for consumption.
