KEYNOTE ADDRESS: BLOCKCHAINS IN HEALTHCARE: TRANSFORMING STRATEGY AND BUSINESS MODELS?

The digital age is turning traditional business strategy inside out.  Two of the guideposts of the past fifty years lie in the dustbins of history: 1) the BCG experience curve explaining economies of scale and, 2) Porter’s 5 Forces Model describing value chains and competitive strategies.
This session will describe and discuss the potential for blockchains to create new business models and strategy. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Blockchains as platforms
  • Network effects
  • Understanding transaction costs
  • How blockchains can decentralize or recentralize power structures
  • How both disruptors and incumbents can use blockchains
  • Case study: companies and initiatives using blockchains with health records/data
