Digipharm announced today its partnership with the Government of Pakistan for the digitalisation of processes related to healthcare financial assistance for citizens and for the optimisation of healthcare funds under the management of the National Social Safety Division, Bait-Ul-Mal.

This partnership will help the digitalisation of the financial process and procurement activities, speeding up the delivery of support to poor patients that rely on the government support in order to access healthcare services and technologies where 90 m patients (25 m families) can be currently supported by the program.

Digipharm’s blockchain solutions for Pakistan

Digipharm will implement its blockchain solutions for value-based healthcare management, patient engagement and procurement to implement all-encompassing Value Based Healthcare (VBHC) capability.

Additionally, this deal aims to save the Government of Pakistan Healthcare funds by improving healthcare resource allocation, increasing access to high cost therapies and exploring avenues for utilising Digipharms’ digital currency (DPH) to incentivise patient engagement in the process.

Ahmed Abdulla, CEO at Digipharm, said:

 “This is a great moment for anybody associated with Digipharm, the Government of Pakistan and most importantly, patients and individuals whom we seek to serve. Using advanced technology to overcome some of humanity’s grand challenges can only serve to inspire other regions and organisations around the world. We aim to make this implementation and our work with the Government of Pakistan’s Bait-Ul-Mal a beacon of innovation that many can learn and benefit for the greater good of all healthcare stakeholders in Pakistan and the rest of the globe.’’
