Despite the hype and noise, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and Blockchains hold great promise in healthcare if executed correctly. And there lies the challenge…’If done correctly!’
This CIC report sees Dr Robert M. Learney, a qualified doctor who studied medicine at Oxford University present the operational opportunities that blockchain and DLT could deliver to the healthcare ecosystem. Many will want and need to understand what is practical and how such technologies can address the demands and changing dynamics of the healthcare stakeholder community. Important questions such as how DLT and blockchains can advance and secure engagements and interactions within national and global healthcare networks.
Specifically, CIC’s report offers insights into how DLT and Blockchains can be used to break walls between data silos and offer new ways for standardising healthcare data. Readers will be left with a number of take-away points that they can use to learn from what is promised by distributed ledger technology in healthcare and what has emerged so far.
