Healthureum will also be operational in India.

"India is suffering from healthcare challenges and we believe Healthureum will provide an easy solution to all the challenges pertinent to easy accessibility and transperancy," Healthureum CTO and data scientist Malcolm Wilkinson said in a statement.

"By adopting a decentralised approach to data management, we eliminate human errors, third-party influence, the risk of tampering and manipulation. Thus, we can achieve a more robust means for storing and sharing data securely," he added.

With the help of Blockchain, it will be easier to track the transaction nodes between the key participants like drug manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacists, medical representatives, thus securing the product information.

Similar to Bitcoin and Ethreum, Healthureum is offering its own token "HHEM" for consumers, institutions and businesses to pay for the Healthureum services.

Healthureum will have its first Token generation event on Feburary 10.
