HEX Innovation chief marketing officer (CMO) Alexander Richards, commented, “We have built trust for mutual understanding regarding the Philippines medical process and healthcare blockchain technology through the briefing sessions with Ministry of Health, Philippines and major private and national hospitals in the Philippines.”
