Panel Description:

There has been increasing hype around blockchain technology's potential application in health information management that is now plateauing as we enter a period where organizations are understanding how it can bring value to their use cases and enhance their business processes. Over the last couple of years, healthcare organizations have been at work building consortia and piloting blockchain-enabled solutions to address an array of health and life science use cases. These groups have conceptualized, prototyped, and piloted these solutions, and have already entered production use and are delivering business value. The panel will explore the path that these solutions, and the organizations pioneering them, have travelled to deliver real-world application and value from this technology. Panelists will reflect on the technical, industry and regulatory challenges faced, how they overcame them, and share best practices for organizations seeking to engage in a blockchain consortium or solution relevant to their business use cases.
