Partners in Digital Health's Telehealth and Medicine Today journal becomes first title to run on the Orvium platform
- 09 Nov 2018

Decentralised scientific publishing and collaboration platform Orvium O▄ has announced a partnership with health-science publisher Partners in Digital Health, publisher of peer-reviewed journals Blockchain in Healthcare Today and Telehealth and Medicine Today. The partnership will see Telehealth and Medicine Today become the first journal to run on the Orvium platform.

Orvium, headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, developed its platform to use distributed ledger blockchain technology to provide infrastructure for incentivised peer review of scientific journals. All transactions - submissions of manuscripts, revisions, publications, peer reviews, patronage results and the like - would be recorded in a tamper-proof historical record that could be referenced to understand how a scientific article came to the state it is in today.

The blockchain also provides a method for decentralised storage of publications when combined with multiple-copy cloud storage. That creates a universally accessible and trustworthy authority of the entire publication process from peer review draft to final release.

Telehealth and Medicine Today is an open access online, peer-reviewed publication. The journal focuses on advances in program implementation, outcomes, process improvement, financial impact and clinical research applications. The objective is to provide rapid research for articles and commentary related to advances in patient-centered care.

Partners in Digital Health expects to use the Orvium blockchain-based platform to reduce costs related to publishing, provide more efficient and trustworthy distribution for articles and peer review.

The Orvium platform is still in beta. It is slated to launch into full release with all attendant capabilities in the next few months. Part of the company's objective is to open up scientific publishing to place greater control over research and papers into the hands of the producers of that research and the peer review that makes it valuable.

The beta service is open access, easily searchable for included articles and journals and includes curated lists cultivated by communities.

The company also announced plans to fund itself with an initial coin offering using its research incentive tokens called ORV. The tokens will be used to underpin the infrastructure of the platform by providing a monetary exchange for publication, distribution, peer review, curation and other activities undertaken by users. Since the tokens will retain a value for utility, they will also be tradable by holders, issuers, banks and fund managers as well as others.

Via Oncology's Via Pathways includes evidence-based proprietary content developed by committees composed of leading oncologists that forms the basis of clinical algorithms covering 95 percent of cancer types treated in the US.

The Via Pathways are deployed to physicians and their staff at the point of care through the Via Portal, a patient-specific decision support tool that is integrated with the electronic medical record and provides seamless measurement of adherence. Via Pathways addresses more than 2,000 unique patient presentations, including expert-defined clinical algorithms and specific recommendations for all significant aspects of cancer care.
