Saudi Arabia Medical Institution Implements Blockchain-Based ‘Digital Credentialing Solution’

Saudi Arabia’s King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre recently became one of the country’s early adopters of blockchain technology after it implemented a “digital credentialing solution.”

Saudi Arabia’s Blockchain Goal

The Saudi Arabian medical institution, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, (KFSHRC) recently completed a deployment of blockchain tech when it implemented “a digital credentialing solution” for all residents that use its facilities. The implementation was carried out via the recently launched Blockchain Lab which has already identified several viable use cases for the technology.

As a result of the deployment of this solution, the hospital can now publish digital certificates directly on the blockchain where they can be verified by residents. The deployment of this solution, according to a statement released by the hospital, aligns with Saudi Arabia’s goal of building blockchain know-how as well as the adoption of this technology in healthcare.

Hospital an Early Adopter of Blockchain

Using the blockchain is also said to enable the medical institution to quickly verify and manage the credentials of residents. The statement explained:

KFSHRC is now able to securely issue, manage, track and verify hospital credentials in a much faster, efficient and convenient manner. Residents receive a secure email that allows them the ability to view their verified credentials on the blockchain and/or download it directly to their digital mobile wallets.

Meanwhile, the hospital’s CEO, Majed Alfayyadh, is quoted lauding the fact that KFSHRC is one of the first institutions in the country to adopt blockchain technology. He added that this implementation “has [also] opened the door for real, applied use cases within healthcare.”

As previously reported by News, Saudi Arabia’s IT decision-makers have identified blockchain as one of the emerging technologies they intend to prioritize in 2022 and beyond. KFSHRC’s implementation of the digital credentialing solution suggests Saudi Arabia’s IT leaders are now backing up their pledge to prioritize the technology.
