Access and Leverage MedsLOCK
MedsLOCK is a communication and real-time monitoring platform that brings in all the information required for real-time pandemic monitoring like medical supply chain data, patient metrics, lockdown zone updates, blood donor info, and puts them all on one screen. The main idea here is to improve efficiency and reduce unnecessary swivel-chair interfaces.
The primary purpose of MAXathon is to refine further and build on the MedsLOCK system.
What is MAXathon?
The MAXathon will take place from from September 5 to October 3, 2020, and will encourage blockchain experts, developers, and other tech enthusiasts to create innovative, blockchain-based health and sanitary solutions in response to the five main global challenges that have come to light following the COVID-19 pandemic.
These five unique global challenges are as follows:
- Physical Distancing: Governments all over the world are searching for solutions to contain the spread of COVID-19. Physical distancing measures such as stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions have been proven to slow the spread in many cases. Participants are expected to create a contract tracing for social distancing solutions that can be quickly adopted.
- Health Status: As of now, the only way that governments can test if a patient is covid positive or not is to physically conduct a test themselves. Can the blockchain be used to help governments quickly identify these cases using verifiable data?
- Welfare: Will it be possible to promote seamless interactions between businesses and governments without an intermediary? Will it be possible to do this in a transparent ecosystem while incurring low transaction fees?
- Social Networking: Social distancing and isolation have irreversibly disrupted our lives. How can we use the blockchain technology to navigate this change?
- UI/UX: Can the blockchain help create a holistic and multi-dimensional dashboard that will empower us to visually and logically make sense of all the pandemic-related data that’s currently flying around?
Maxonrow is specifically looking for solutions that help solidify their MedsLOCK offering.
