Our healthcare ecosystem is increasingly complex, with multiple stakeholders engaged in intricate, sensitive interactions that can lead to data security and privacy challenges and operational inefficiencies. Ownership and trusted access to medical information and administrative data is critical, yet the process must be made simpler and less costly.

Attend this session to hear from the authors of IBM’s winning submission to the HHS ONC Challenge on the Use of Blockchain in Health IT and Health-relatedResearch Challenge. Here you’ll learn more about Blockchain and its potential for addressing significant healthcare issues such as:

  • Counterfeit Drug Prevention and Detection: Introduce blockchain-enabled solutions to protect and enhance the pharmaceutical supply chain
  • Validation and Payment of Claims: Reduce process time and friction, including compliance with contract terms
  • Genomics Research: Accessibility to genetic data secured on blockchain
  • Clinical Trial Results: Improve accountability and transparency in the clinical trial reporting process
  • Internet of Things and Blockchain: Consumer-generated health data meets IoT wearables through data accessibility and interconnection with health records
  • Outcome-Based Payments: Assigns each consumer a unique digital identity with data from blockchain (payers measure metrics for positive outcomes)

Please join us and your industry colleagues for a thought provoking discussion on this innovative and exciting new technology.
