IBM and VetBloom Advance Veterinary Industry through Blockchain

In an effort to advance learning credentials in the veterinary industry, IBM will collaborates VetBloom to bring blockchain technology into the vet industry. The aim is to give out digital badges as credits are completed according to a competency-based framework a source from PRNewswire claims. Vetbloom is apart of the Ethos Veterinary Health digital learning ecosystem.

"We have worked diligently with IBM over the last year to bring key industry stakeholders into this initiative, creating a veterinary ecosystem that will join IBM's broader work around learning credentials and blockchain," said Patrick Welch, DVM, MBA, DACVO, Chief Knowledge Officer of Ethos Veterinary Health and Founder of VetBloom. "Blockchain is a team sport, and the only way this initiative will succeed is through collaboration with likeminded entities in the veterinary space." 

Project collaborators include: the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), the International Council for Veterinary Assessment (ICVA), and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

"It has been incredibly rewarding to work with VetBloom and the other collaborating entities in the veterinary learning space over the past year," said Alex Kaplan, IBM's Global Leader, Blockchain and AI for Credentials. "IBM sees tremendous potential for the learning credential blockchain to support competency-based learning and digital credentials in veterinary education, and we look forward to continuing our work together in 2020."
