KEYNOTE ADDRESS: THE MARKETPLACE BUSINESS MODEL IN HEALTHCARE

  • Healthcare’s current state
  • The opportunity for blockchain
  • Opportunities and challenges in healthcare use case development
  • B2B vs B2C
  • Technical models, business models, governance structures
  • Q&A

Opportunities for improving our care delivery system remain locked inside protected, volume-focused pipeline business models and silo’d interests.  The opportunity for blockchain is to change the current paradigm from the inside out or flank it altogether.  This session will review the various approaches to healthcare blockchain use cases over the past two years. Topics will include a discussion of why use cases are plentiful, but meaningful use will require a sophisticated approach that includes the correct technical solution, business model innovation, and new governance concepts.
