Partners in Digital Health, publisher of  Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) has announced a partnership with Orvium, the first decentralized social platform for scientific collaboration, funding, and publications management based on blockchain and artificial Intelligence. TMT will be the first journal to run on the new Orvium decentralized platform.
 
Manuel Martin, CEO and Co-founder of Orvium, said, “This represents another significant milestone for our platform as we move into this next exciting phase of development. Having a major journal like ‘Telehealth and Medicine Today’ as the first to go through our decentralized platform is a strong vote of confidence from a major publisher, and underlines the credentials of our platform.”

Headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, Orvium is a new open-source decentralized platform which aims to revolutionize the speed with which the academic review process takes place, incentivizing peer review on the blockchain through tokenized economic and reputational rewards. With a team drawn from CERN, NASA, Amazon, Oracle, and others, Orvium uses several cutting-edge technologies, including blockchain and artificial intelligence, to drastically reduce the long and often costly process of having research published by traditional publishing houses. The project aims to make scientific data more accessible while giving researchers more control over their work and distribution rights.
