In November 2017, Fady's wife was rushed to the hospital in agonizing pain. She had undiagnosed internal bleeding from an ectopic pregnancy. The medical staff were unsure what was causing her pain so the first information they required were her medical records to find out if she had allergies to medicines, any chronic conditions, recent surgeries or any other factors which may effect her treatment.
After four life-threatening hours she was rushed into the operating room. By this time, she had lost over 3 liters of blood and had a blood pressure of 50/35.
While all this was going on, I was preparing to go back to work after maternity leave and deciding what my final Masters in Blockchain project will be.
When Fady and I talked about the situation with his wife, we couldn't believe the absurd notion that we have access to so much information at the touch of a button, but not to - our most vital information, our medical records.
Suddenly, it all made sense.
We recognized that this world is in dire need of a platform that empowers patients to have instant access to understandable, engaging and complete medical records. We understood that this platform can only truly be powered through a global ecosystem that connects all stakeholders in the healthcare industry and that blockchain technology was the revolutionary innovation that can make that happen. Of course I was glad that I found the topic for my final thesis, but that paled in comparison to what both Fady and I realised we needed to do.
