Seoul, South Korea, October 19 2023 – Solve.Care, a healthtech company that utilizes its blockchain digital healthcare platform to deliver better care, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Blockchain Research Institute Korea (BRI Korea) to explore areas of collaboration for the Korean market.
BRI Korea is the Korean chapter for the Blockchain Research Institute headquartered in Canada. BRI Korea is represented by BOSagora. The main focus of BRI Korea is on research that provides strategic implications of blockchain technology for businesses, the government, and society in Korea.
Through the partnership with Solve.Care, all parties will explore areas of mutual interest, to provide blockchain solutions for users in Korea, especially in the area of healthcare.
“As part of our mission to increase access to healthcare and improved care coordination on a global scale, we are seeking to increase our eco-system of partners in Korea that can help us achieve that goal,” said Dr. Uhn Lee, President of Solve.Care Korea. “For example, I see great synergies where BRI Korea will add value to the expansion of our Care.Labs 101 education course, which has been developed in collaboration with Inha University.”
“This partnership is a great way for BOSagora, which aims for ‘everyday blockchain’, to have a positive impact on expanding into the healthcare field. In addition, BRI Korea’s accumulated research data and infrastructure will have a synergistic effect in expanding Solve.Care’s domestic healthcare ecosystem,” said Kim In-hwan, CEO of BRI Korea and chairman of the BOSAGORA Foundation.
Don Tapscott, co-founder and executive chairman of Blockchain Research Institute and project advisor to BOSagora also welcomes Solve.Care to the consortium. “The real-world use cases for blockchain in healthcare show us the importance of this technology. It will be critical to improving the lives of billions of people, and this partnership is an important step forward in making that happen.”
