Blockchain is not a cure-all for everything that ails the healthcare system. However, it has the unique ability to bring cohesion and enable trusted data sharing in a currently disparate and overly complicated system. By establishing trust while improving access and transparency to near real-time data across the healthcare ecosystem, blockchain over time can contribute to better clinical decisions and outcomes, reduce administrative burdens, and empower patients to own their healthcare data. This presentation explores how it can work in healthcare and what is not working.

Learning Objectives

  1. Demonstrate how blockchain technology is improving the ability to coordinate care 
  2. Assess for provider leadership the varying levels of implementation that are possible with blockchain in a hospital setting   

  3. Define various approaches used currently and in future blockchain implementations for coordinating care, measuring

  4. Outline current piloting and testing efforts by vendors and organizations to implement blockchains

  5. Illustrate some of the key ongoing problems and risks associated application of blockchain technology in health provider and payer settings
