Blockchain is the next hot technology in healthcare. While still a nascent technology in the healthcare industry, blockchain has potential to help organizations bridge traditional data silos, dramatically increase IT and organizational efficiencies, keep business and medical data secure, and streamline patients’ access to medical data. Yet most companies have more questions than answers about the technology’s use cases and the impacts it will have on their IT infrastructure and ecosystems. Is it real or is it hype? Can it work with existing systems or will it disrupt business as we know it? This day-long conference brings together top executives from leading hospitals, health insurance companies, health IT firms, and startups to provide an in-depth discussion of blockchain opportunities and implications. Qualifies for 1 CEU, 8 PDH credits.
