Each time a pharmaceutical company produces medicine, they communicate with our Blockchain database and request a unique QR code from us. This unique QR code is printed on the foil/packaging for the medicine.
When you receive your medicine, simply scan the QR code with your phone or tablet using your verifymymeds app. The app will decrypt the QR code, verify its digital signature and will check the code against the Blockchain database.
If it is a valid code then the product details will be displayed in the app on your device. If the code fails then you will be advised that this product is not genuine and should be returned.
There are more QR code combinations available than there are atoms in the known universe! So there are a few to go around! One of the many advantages of using a (patent pending) Blockchain architecture is the speed of processing. Our Blockchain database processes millions of transactions every minute. Our servers are distributed across the planet so there is always one near you for faster communications.
One of the many advantages of our (patent pending) Blockchain architecture is that the transactions are anonymised. We will never be able to associate any medical products to a specific person or group of persons.
When you download the app to your device the app generates a random user key (128 digits of gibberish!) which we use to log the scans you take. That's it! You don't register to use the app, and we don't take any personal details from your device either.
A fraudster can create as many fake QR codes as they like, but none of them will get past our encryption!! The first thing our app does when you scan a QR code is to decrypt the code using our encryption keys. Only genuine QR codes, created by our Blockchain database, will be able to be decrypted by the verifymymeds app. If you scan a fake code then the app will tell you straight away that this is a fake code and that the product should be returned.
Our product tracking system will flag this up and tell you (via the app) that this is a copied code and hence the product is not genuine. We track the movement of the product through the supply chain and we know where each product is distributed from and to where they go. We have an AI system which uses several criteria to verify if the code has been fraudulently copied.
Nope. We don't, and nor will we ever, carry any form of advertising.
Nope. We don't collect any personal information on you in the first place, and even if we did, we wouldn't sell it, to anyone, ever.
We charge each of the pharmaceutical companies a fee for providing the service. It is in their interest to ensure that the medication you are taking is 100% genuine. That is what we are trying to ensure, and that is our only driver.
