The blockchain revolution has made its way to the healthcare industry, and it's only the beginning of what's possible. Healthcare Rallies for Blockchain, a 2017 study from IBM, found that 16% of surveyed healthcare executives had solid plans to implement a commercial blockchain solution this year, while 56% expected to by 2020. Healthcare companies, tech innovators and the rest of the healthcare industry are grappling with what's possible now and what blockchain could solve in the future.
Co-presented by SGInnovate and ACCESS Health International, the Blockchain in Healthcare panel discussion will enable healthcare professionals to understand how blockchain technology such as cryptocurrency, smart contracts, distributed databases, and public ledgers will continue to transform their sector.
