WHERE THE WORLD
CONNECTS FOR HEALTH
Disruptive innovation is driving the future of health and healthcare – and blockchain is one of the hottest technologies leading the pack. Blockchain is revolutionizing the way health information is managed, decentralizing data collection and management, and increasing data security and transparency. It is most often used in interoperability and in privacy and security, with goals of improved health information exchange, patient safety and outcomes.
There are many obstacles to implementing and using blockchain in healthcare – including the existence of well-entrenched business models and data management processes, implementation costs and regulations, technical challenges, workflow adaptations and more. Before healthcare organizations are able to implement the power of blockchain on a widespread basis, they must determine how to best overcome these myriad complex challenges.
