Improving Smart Contract Security in Healthcare Supply Chain

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W330A

Description

Supply Chain is moving from the era of customized Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Resource Planning Systems to cloud-based technologies. Organizations relied upon custom-developed business logic that integrated with their infrastructures to meet their business requirements. With the move to the cloud, the ability to customize goes away. Smart contracts, which have received renewed focus due to Blockchain, provide a vehicle for organizations to augment their existing data interchange systems while utilizing this technology to provide even more business value. This presentation will go over the history of EDI and ERP, why customizations bring risk, and how to implement smart contracts to address these risks and improve the overall security picture for health system supply chains.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the current customization issues with cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning systems, and how smart contracts can help address their organization's needs
  • Analyze available smart contract solutions and develop a framework to assess and address their use within their organization
  • Apply the knowledge learned in this session to augment existing processes and assist in providing a secure solution to facilitate consortia
  • Describe how to identify and address security, contracting, validation, and execution concerns with the usage of smart contracts as part of an ERP or MRP system
