Lunch & Learn - Understanding Blockchains and the Digital Transformation of Healthcare
1601 Cumberland Mall SE
Atlanta, GA, 30339
Thank you to our event Sponsor!!
Digital Transformation will change the world more in the next 5 – 10 years than it’s changed in the past twenty. And perhaps no technology will drive that change more than Blockchain. Blockchain is enabling the Digital Transformation of business ecosystems from financial services to energy to supply chains around the world. No industry, process, or profession is immune to the impacts of Digital Transformation – least of all healthcare.
Healthcare providers, payors, suppliers, and technology companies are increasingly aware that Blockchain is an important emerging technology, but it is still not yet well understood by most healthcare professionals. Blockchain technologies promise to finally make Patient Mediated Health Data Exchange truly viable by providing patients with self-sovereign, patient-centered Electronic Healthcare Records.
But the implications of Blockchain for healthcare go far beyond just the EHR. Areas that Blockchain will help to dramatically transform over the next few years include:
Healthcare Claims Adjudication and Payment
Integration of such Medical devices as sensors, monitors, and wearables into the EHR
Doctor-Vendor RFP Services
Counterfeit Drug Prevention and Detection
Supply Chain Provenance of Parts and Materials
Health Document Notary Services
Clinical Trial Results
Population Health Management
Healthcare providers, payors, suppliers, and technology companies must understand the impact of Blockchain on their organizations and on the overall Healthcare Ecosystem. And they must understand the kinds of skills and capabilities they’ll need to survive and prosper in the rapidly emerging digital healthcare environment.
Key questions Jack will address in his presentation include:
What is Blockchain? How does it work?
How will Blockchain work with our existing technology? How will blockchain alter the healthcare landscape?
What is a Smart Contract? How do Smart Contracts affect healthcare?
How will Blockchains and Smart Contracts impact our organization?
What are the opportunities?
How do we plan for Blockchain and Smart Contracts?
