How Blockchain Failed to Meet Expectations

12:15pm - 12:35pm Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Hall D | Booth 7145 | Lightning Sessions Theater

Description

The world of clinical research is full of challenges technology might address. As we re-platform MACRO (Elsevier’s Clinical Study Design and Electronic Data Capture tool), we hoped to leverage Blockchain to manage consent, audit history, and more. As we dug deeper, more and more underwhelmed us. We had to ask, “Are we using blockchain just for the sake of using the technology?” Join us for postmortem analysis of Blockchain and why we decided to go with more accepted industry standard approaches.
