Blockchain and Healthcare
One critical vertical that IEEE Blockchain is exploring is the use of blockchain in healthcare. From supply chain and clinical trial management to securely recording and protecting patient data, the integration of blockchain technologies in healthcare will revolutionize the industry worldwide. Potential benefits include the ability to securely store and share critical data, which is often contained in silos. Blockchain can also give various healthcare providers immediate access to patient records, streamline IT and operational costs, reduce fraud, facilitate telemedicine -- which involves the remote delivery of healthcare services over telecommunications, and ultimately support better health outcomes for patients.
One of the ways in which IEEE Blockchain aims to address this rapidly evolving global transformation is by introducing a new collaborative, virtual event series,
IEEE Healthcare: Blockchain & AI.
Through podcasts, virtual keynotes and industry forums, digitally curated poster competitions, globally connected standards collaborations, and publications, this series aims to deliver actionable discussions from all aspects of industry.
