The State of Blockchain in Healthcare: A panel discussion on moving from hype to reality in 2019

7:15am - 8:15am Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Room 202A


HIMSS19 Breakfast Briefing hosted by IBM

The exchange and sharing of information, money, and supplies across the healthcare ecosystem has long posed challenges to health organizations. Despite major initiatives to digitize healthcare information, the industry still lacks true transparency and interoperability.  This, along with administrative errors, create additional cost and friction that impede the effective exchange of healthcare information, delivery of healthcare and the patient experience. Many agree blockchain technology could alleviate some of these challenges, but CxOs are interested in moving beyond the hype to better understand practical application and timing.
This session will feature an interactive discussion with industry leaders on emerging use cases for blockchain technology in healthcare and steps that IBM and others are taking to support deployment of these solutions in 2019.
Breakfast and refreshments will be served.
