Your Blockchain Network Is Live-What Happens Next?

8:30am - 9:30am Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W414A

Description

Blockchain development and deployment is accelerating across the healthcare market. For many organizations, the question is no longer about whether to adopt blockchain but rather how to maintain, grow and extract maximum value from a deployment. In January of 2018, Change Healthcare went live with a production blockchain network that manages millions of transactions a day between payors and providers and continues to expand its use of blockchain in a number of ways. In this session, Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger, and Emily Bailey, director of blockchain development at Change Healthcare, will dive into the challenges and opportunities that come once the focus shifts from getting an initial deployment into production to ensuring your organization is getting the most from individual and cross-industry networks with returns such as increased efficiencies, reduced risk and improved outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Assess new technologies and standards that will drive interoperability, extensibility and scale
  • Analyze key considerations for expanding a deployment, including the role of blockchain as a service and avoiding vendor lock
  • Identify lessons learned and successes drawn from Change Healthcare’s experiences
  • Debate the next wave of healthcare use cases and applications that widespread blockchain adoption will be able to support
