I Understand Blockchain, What Else Do I Need to Know?

10:00am - 11:00am Monday, February 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W206A

Description

This session will cover topics beyond what blockchain is.  We will look at non technical requirements and hurdles, available platforms and how they differ, and arm you to evaluate why now and what's coming.  You didn't deploy internet and you won't deploy blockchain.    Network design, protocol, participation, governance,  scalability, interoperability, legal considerations, and what's next are all important parts of the decision to use blockchain.  What do you really need to know to get behind a blockchain project?

Learning Objectives: 

  • Outline considerations beyond the technology and what has worked in current blockchain projects in healthcare
  • Discuss what and where blockchain is today and what is realistic in the near future
