BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE
Healthcare data sharing, analysis, and verification

BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

Blockchain’s decentralized, automated third-party system to transfer data freely and securely offers healthcare the ability to accelerate R&D and create more efficient care pathways.

  • Recently Medtronic innovators prototyped a blockchain to help patients share their EHRs with clinicians via a trusted, private third-party intermediary.
  • Researchers project that 55 percent of healthcare applications will have adopted blockchain for commercial deployment by 2025.1

MINIATURISATION OF MEDICAL DEVICES
Tiny medical devices use less energy, are less invasive

Micro-electronics, ultra-low-power medical device circuit board

Using the same technology that compressed computing into the palm of your hand, Medtronic microelectronics experts are reinventing medical devices that:

  • Use less energy
  • Take up less space

“Thinking small” can lead to something really, really big in healthcare’s future.
