ODEM, creator of the world’s first On-Demand Education Marketplace, is delighted to announce a partnership with WELL to make medical education more accessible and affordable.
ODEM (https://odem.io), which aspires to be the Airbnb of international education, is collaborating with WELL (https://joinwell.io) by using the blockchain-based ODEM platform to streamline the organization and delivery of specialized medical training courses. The platform will also act as a secure warehouse of medical professionals’ credentials and act as a tool for managing ongoing professional accreditation requirements.
“I’m excited by the opportunity to work with WELL specifically on medical education and patient care,“ says Rich Maaghul, chief executive officer of ODEM. “We’re deploying the ODEM Platform for the cause of advancing the practice of medical care even in the world’s most remote locations.”
WELL was attracted to the idea of partnering with ODEM because of the companies’ shared vision of using blockchain, or distributed-ledger technology, to creatively disrupt their target industries; medicine and education.
“We are glad to cooperate with ODEM in striving to promote high-quality medical education and make it more accessible and modern,” said Ildar Fazulyanov, WELL’S chief executive officer. “We plan to encourage WELL’s senior doctors to share their knowledge with younger specialists. It would be great if the most active on the WELL platform doctors create original educational programs on the ODEM platform as well.”
Switzerland-based ODEM sold over 100 million ODEM Tokens in the sale that ended on March 19 2018. Proceeds will be used to fund ongoing development of the blockchain-based platform. A beta version of the education marketplace is scheduled for completion in the first half of this year.
ODEM is partnering with Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Excelorators Inc. in the design and rollout of the ODEM Platform. Excelorators, with more than five years of education industry experience, has existing relationships with more than 200 professors and lecturers who are likely to become early adopters.
KPMG is ODEM’s legal advisor while SICOS (Lux) S.C.S. has provided ODEM with advice and counsel on the crowdsale and its structure.
