Healthtech solutions company offers mobile training and work certificates app using a distributed ledger platform (DLT), enabling access to restricted areas throughout the pandemic
LONDON AND WARSAW — Jan. 18, 2021 — CCube Solutions, the leading provider of digital health solutions, joined forces with enterprise DLT creator Billon Group and digital services company The Gekko Group, to launch the Ready-to-Work app in Q2 this year. The app uses the distributed ledger document management platform designed by Billon.
It will allow medical and non-medical staff to easily prove they have all the necessary certification and training to work in restricted COVID-19 areas or to move between clinics — potentially saving days of certification delays and administrative hassle. Interested CCube clients can join a free pilot, submitting their interest no later than Tuesday, January 25.
CCube Solutions Managing Director Dr. Vijay Magon comments: “CCube serves over 30 NHS Trusts & Health Boards today, and during these pandemic times, we hear the need to help improve the ability for staff with necessary skills to move more freely to where they are needed and to be able to prove they can enter a restricted area. This product perfectly solves this need, and we are excited to be a partner.”
The Ready-to-Work app is a certification wallet where users can store the required onboarding documents (such as medical training, test results or vaccination certificates) and share them with any employer or third party when required. Users can present certificates online or in person, showing up as a QR code in the app. This saves time and expenses and avoids the inconvenience of needing to search for and carry around physical documents. Billon’s immutable DLT back-end makes documents fraud-resistant and protects the privacy of data in a way that cannot be done easily with traditional technology.
Billon Chief Growth Officer David Putts comments: “We put the integrity of data and verifiable credentials at the forefront of our solution. This new form of distributed ledger technology makes it possible to share credentials which can always be verified for integrity, and where the encryption hides private data from even the operator of the system. Only the issuer of a certificate and the receiver of a certificate have access rights.”
The solution relies on Billon’s DLT platform for credentials storage and sharing which addresses considerable practical, legal and technological challenges for data security and identity protection across large populations. Blockchain-based, it provides decentralised and immutable data storage – the ultimate level of reliable, tamper-proof security. Once a certificate is linked to an ID, it is immutably stored, so it cannot be modified by any participating party. This feature ensures an individual’s capacity to control and protect their data is not compromised while mitigating the individual and public health risk.
Key benefits of the solution are as follows:
- Hospitals: The platform certifies who has complied with essential standards for returning to work, such as a medically established COVID-19 immunity or completion of specialised training. This makes it possible for medical staff to move between locations and show their training or health status, linked to identity, which saves time and money by eliminating paperwork and background checks
- Staff: The platform lets the staff use their phone or other digital device to instantly provide proof of vaccination, workplace safety training or negative test results. Accessibility and data privacy enable simple and secure processes in their onboarding, eliminating delays and paper-based processing issues.
- Administrators: The immutable certificates can validate on demand any onboarding and access documents required for compliance processes. Administrators are able to verify immunity and other required checks instantly — and in a fraud-resistant manner.
Apart from Billon, CCube Solutions is partnering with The Gekko Group for design and development of the user interface and mobile application. The Gekko Group’s team of UX/UI experts create the user journey unique to each client, while Billon’s back-end developers customise the processes and create APIs to connect to any existing system.
The Gekko Group Founder Michael Eriksson comments: “Gekko Group brings an all-star team of leading developers who understand the importance of user experience and who share the passion that sustainability requires for digital solutions that can be shared in the new form of ecosystems emerging today.”
The app is being developed with funding from Innovate UK and in line with NHS requirements and other government initiatives. Innovate UK’s Fast Start Competition previously gave Billon Group a £50,000 grant to build a distributed ledger platform to store COVID-19 related certificates to support workers’ safe return to the workplace. This pilot scope, now refined, progresses to a fully functioning prototype for sharing, storage and verification of a wide range of workplace training and medical test documents. Billon and The Gekko Group recently won a £326,000 grant to deliver a solution to the market, bringing the value of the project to over $400,000.
