The PharmaLedger project aims to bring value and trust to the healthcare ecosystem through blockchain technology.
Together, we will create a Blockchain-based framework for the efficient digitization of the healthcare industry.
The goal of the project is to provide a widely trusted platform that will support the design and adoption of blockchain-enabled healthcare
solutions while accelerating delivery of innovation that will benefit the entire ecosystem - from manufacturers to patients.
