Orvium Platform Joins Forces With Partners In Digital Health Publishers

Announcements, Blockchain, ICO News | November 10, 2018 By:

Orvium, a decentralized social platform for scientific collaboration, funding, and publications management based on blockchain and artificial intelligence, has allied with Partners in Digital Health, publishers of the peer review journals Blockchain in Healthcare Today and Telehealth and Medicine Today.

The partnership will see Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) as the first journal to run on the new Orvium decentralized platform.

“We are excited to partner with Orvium and explore what the future of academic journal publishing holds,” said Tory Cenaj, founder and publisher, Partners in Digital Health. “Our portfolio is far-reaching and we are not shy to explore firsts. We were the first to partner with ARTiFACTS and one of the first to partner with Code Ocean. Partnering with Orvium is an equally marvelous opportunity, where academia and scientific research can experience a transparent and universal sharing of knowledge, unveiling what would otherwise remain dark. Ideally, this will lead to a speedier time to market, where both business and patient benefit.“

TMT is an open access, peer-reviewed journal where health leaders and caregivers converge to find solutions in a transformative technology sector, modernizing healthcare. TMT disseminates the launching and scaling of delivery services to achieve sustainable outcomes of integrated healthcare systems. The journal offers rapid review of research articles and commentaries related to innovations in patient-centered care, and cost efficiencies in the sector. Emphasis focuses on advances in program implementation, outcomes, process improvement, financial impact, and clinical research applications across the care continuum in value-based care.

Orvium also outlined plans to undertake an initial coin offering in the coming months. The tokens issued (ORV) will be marketed and registered as a utility token and will underpin the platform’s key functionalities. ORV tokens will be usable by ICO contributors, token issuers, banks and fund managers, legal providers, as well as third-party contractors, such as KYC providers, to access and pay for various services on the Orvium network.

Manuel Martin, CEO and Co-founder of Orvium, said the move would represent “another significant milestone for our platform as we move into this next exciting phase of development. Having a major journal like Telehealth and Medicine Today as the first to go through our decentralized platform is a strong vote of confidence from a major publisher, and underlines the credentials of our platform.”
