The adoption of blockchain in healthcare: explored at the Blockchain Global Expo 2019

Industry: Technology

The implementation of blockchain in the healthcare industry will spur on the ongoing trends towards digital democratisation of care delivery models and more personalised treatments. According to the World Health Organisation, there is a global shortage of over seven million physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals. Not only do doctors need to meet the growing needs of their patients, they also need to stay on top of the rapidly evolving technological landscape.

Research from Frost & Sullivan predicts that the next 5 to 10 years will see the emergence of a ‘blockchain ecosystem with healthcare-focused use cases’ centered around the following areas: health data exchanges, smart assets management, insurance and payment solution.

Blockchain-based technology could be the solution everyone is waiting for. Looking into the future, as more personalised biological information becomes available, services could be offered that are based not only on genomic data, but also other health, biological, and environmental information, facilitating new insights into disease processes. The new adoption of Blockchain technology removes the vulnerabilities associated with cloud databases. This means it would be safe to store even the most sensitive DNA and healthcare data on the blockchain, without fear of it being stolen or misused in a cyber-attack.

The Blockchain Global Expo 2019 running on the 25-26th April at Olympia Grand London, focuses on several of these exciting healthcare topics.

Blockchain Expo has been embraced by the blockchain community with notable experts and leading organisations joining the conference agenda.
