IEEE Standards Association Webinar: Blockchain - The Game Changer in the Optimization and Efficacy of Clinical Trials Webinar - 11 October 2017

Speakers: Robert Barkovich, CEO & Founder, Health Linkages; Edward Bukstel, CEO, Clinical Blockchain; Vladimir Petrovic, Clinical Biomarkers and Diagnostics, Amgen

Moderator: Maria Palombini, Director, Community and Initiative Development, IEEE-SA

On 11 October 2017, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Corporate Membership Program held an exclusive blockchain webinar. Data sharing, data privacy, and patient recruitment in clinical trials are significant challenges for clinical research. There is a clear competitive relationship between data sharing and privacy where both must be satisfied:

  1. The need for data-sharing amongst stakeholders (researchers, healthcare providers, and regulators); and
  2. The need for patient privacy and confidentiality have created an unsustainable environment for existing legacy platforms that cannot ensure data integrity.

Blockchain has made significant strides in the financial and healthcare sectors offering a new perspective and platform for data management, distribution, and verification in this global data-sharing economy. This webinar will address the potential applications for blockchain applications within the clinical trials process.
