We’ve been blogging about blockchain for the past year. The power of this technology cannot be overstated. For the healthcare industry which is buried under mountains of patient records that are sent multiple times to various stakeholders; patients, doctors, service providers, insurance companies through manual (remember that Xerox copy?), electronically via fax, email and other web enabled protocols, mobile devices and the old recreate from memory that list of medications you’re currently taking…blockchain technology may just be the solution to the endless problem of current patient records – security, accuracy and custody are all part of the solution.
Other areas of the industry that can benefit: research, contracts, collaboration, staffing and care coordination, just to name a few. Interested? Learn more about a few new start-ups that are exploiting this technology in this article. If you’re interested in how we can help, get in touch.
