In an industry first, ShelterZoom gives Argentine patients control over their medical records with its smart-document SaaS


ShelterZoom’s blockchain-based tools empower Policlinico Modelo de Cipolletti patients to fully control and monitor their medical records via document tokenization, preventing bureaucratic delays and mistakes

ShelterZoom, a leading blockchain-based, smart-document SaaS provider, partners with Policlinico Modelo de Cipolletti, a leading private hospital in Argentina known for adopting tech advances. Through the partnership, the hospital will integrate ShelterZoom’s DocuWalk and Document GPS solutions to empower patients with complete ownership and control over their medical records, offering a glimpse into Web3’s potential to drastically improve healthcare delivery.

Historically, medical records have been considered property of clinicians or health institutions, and a study conducted by Yale researchers found that only 53 percent of hospitals allow patients to receive their complete records. This lack of patient access makes sharing sensitive medical records between hospitals and healthcare providers or facilities a complicated process  defined by bureaucratic hold ups and patient frustrations. As a result, patients experience unnecessary delays in receiving care, which directly impacts the quality of care.

By leveraging ShelterZoom’s document tokenization tools, Policlinico Modelo empowers its patients to take full ownership over their sensitive medical records to improve communication between patients and relevant parties and, ultimately, improve healthcare outcomes. ShelterZoom shields patients’ medical data from cyber breaches and allows them to bypass the bureaucratic hurdles by delivering their own medical records directly to a specialist or clinic.

With Document GPS, ShelterZoom’s newest product, the sender has a timestamped log in their interactive attachment library built into their email interface. This empowers senders to track how recipients interact with each file. ShelterZoom built Document GPS on the same innovative blockchain technology powering its entire platform, allowing users an extra layer of security integrated into the system.

“Our partnership with Policlinico Modelo de Cipolletti is the first time in history that patients will have complete ownership and control over their medical records,” says Chao Cheng-Shorland, CEO of ShelterZoom. “In addition to empowering patients to own and control their own medical records, they will also benefit from unprecedented levels of security due to them being tokenized via the blockchain. This allows patients to share the necessary parts of their medical records with a clinic or pharmaceutical company and then revoke access when it is no longer relevant.”

“Back in 2000, we began a process to build our own internal digital system for patient data, and it has shown to have major benefits regarding patient care,” says Salvador Scafidi, Owner of Policlinico Modelo de Cipolletti. “Now, decades later, our partnership with ShelterZoom provides us with the ideal digital tool because it allows our patients to own and control their complete medical history. We are excited to integrate such an innovative tool into our existing system and look forward to the improved quality of care it will enable.”
