KEYNOTE ADDRESS: A COLLABORATIVE PATH TO DEMOCRATIZE DATA IN HEALTHCARE

Our Healthcare system relies on large centralized entities with walled gardens of valuable information. “Freeing” this data is not solely a technical problem but can be enabled by a decentralized industry utility that incentivizes collaboration and enables stakeholders to treat data as an asset. Collaboration is crucial for success as the landscape shifts from fee for service to value based arrangements. Blockchain technologies can provide the technology foundation to power this dramatic change, but the incentives are key to change the existing behavior and culture. This presentation will discuss some example opportunities and known barriers to set context and then use those as reference while walking through a proposed solution.
