Virtual Event

Were you unable to attend the HIMSS18 Blockchain Session in the Interoperabiilty ShowcaseTM? Join us for Part 2 of this session and continue the conversation with our panel of experts.


Join us for a continuation of our HIMSS18 conversation! Blockchain has great potential across healthcare to improve patient care and reduce costs, and is already starting to take hold in healthcare networks from clearinghouses, to drug supply chains, provider credentialing processes, and other critical areas. This panel of experts will build upon their discussion in Las Vegas to help separate hype from reality, identify suitable Blockchain use cases applicable to your organization, and recognize near term opportunities for real value. In this session, we will also share practical strategies for interoperability, privacy, security, compliance, deployment, and performance to help you to get started with blockchain in your healthcare organization. 

Learning Objectives

After this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Apply practical strategies to identify suitable use cases for Blockchain for your organization.
  • Identify frameworks to achieve interoperability, performance, and deployment with Blockchain.
  • Leverage best practices for privacy, security, and compliance as it relates to the use of Blockchain technology.
