Blockchain Reset: Seeing through the Hype and Starting down the Path, Part 2

June 05, 2018

Thank you for joining us for a continuation of our HIMSS18 conversation! Watch Part 1 of this series, which occurred in the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS18.


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 builds 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 also share practical deployment strategies to help you to get started with blockchain in your healthcare organization, and take time to answer your burning questions on the technology and its role in healthcare.

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.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
