BUILDING A PATIENT-CENTERED HEALTH IT INFRASTRUCTURE WITH BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES

The move from centralized and even cloud storage to peer-to-peer data stores for health care is showing potential for building a truly user-centric health care system. Much like Bitcoin’s blockchain enables exchange of value without a central authority, can blockchain-related technologies be used to enable health information exchange in a peer-to-peer fashion without a central authority, and create universal, yet private, health IDs? This presentation will offer insights on the technology and economics of developing an individual-centric health system.
