BLOCKCHAIN’S POTENTIAL TO CREATE BETTER VALUE IN HEALTHCARE

Healthcare is losing an estimated $300 billion per year in untapped data integration.1 How can healthcare provide secure access to critical patient health information?

The answer lies in blockchain, which will allow health systems to realize efficiencies and design more efficient care pathways. Continue reading more about this topic.

"From uncovering demographic trends, to making electronic health records (EHRs) more accessible to patients, blockchain has the potential to:

  • Accelerate R&D
  • Create more efficient care pathways
  • Improve — and measure — patient outcomes"
pdf BREAKING DOWN BORDERS — WHAT BLOCKCHAIN CAN DO FOR HEALTHCARE (.pdf)

The time is ripe to explore blockchain technology, which offers a new way to share, analyze, and verify healthcare information. Better access to secure healthcare data will empower both patients and physicians, lower costs, and may improve patient outcomes.
