HIMSS19 Blockchain Forum
February 13 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC-5
Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies have great potential across healthcare to improve patient care, reduce costs, and enhance the experiences and engagement of patients and healthcare professionals in a whole new way. These emerging technologies have already started to take hold in healthcare networks: from clearinghouses to drug and medical device supply chains, provider directories and credentialing processes, health information exchange, and many other critical areas. Much of the promise of blockchain comes with its potential to disrupt and change how healthcare works, leading to questions and concerns among the healthcare community.
The Blockchain Forum will address the following questions: What is real in blockchain? Is it secure, private, and compliant with regulations? What is appropriate and not appropriate for blockchain? Join us for a highly interactive educational program that is anchored to real-life use cases and projects, and will provide an opportunity to have dialogue with global experts about the business and value proposition of blockchain.
