PANEL DISCUSSION: BLOCKCHAIN INNOVATION FOR HEALTHCARE SERVICES

Blockchain capabilities, such as transaction record immutability, mean little for healthcare except in the context of changes in how services are delivered and how complex patient conditions can be treated over time. On the panel are healthcare innovators who are using blockchain to address specific challenges in healthcare data access, service delivery, and patient engagement. The panel will showcase innovative solutions in health data access, patient connection to providers and communities, service integration, and health system interoperability in a distributed environment.
