Industry must follow government regulatory changes with the implementation of new technologies that enable collaboration and interoperability. We would call that a vertical merger.
Blockchain can also contribute to substantial cost savings, compliance with regulatory requirements, and ultimately assist in better patient care. The potential for healthcare industry applications of blockchain and distributed systems is vast.
Blockchains provide a much more powerful common transactional platform through the implementation of smart contracts. Rather, as with digital signatures or records, if a change happened it would be identified, and even more so because of the redundant and distributed nature of the ledger which increases the ability to detect changes.
Many of mobile phones supporting high speed data transmission, video services, and mobile devices with powerful computational ability. The opportunity is immense for healthcare enterprises that embrace the innovative promise and dedicate resources to experimentation and iterative fast failures.
Even further, blockchain-enabled IoT platforms could also be used in provenance tracking for biologics and allograft tissue implants and medical equipment asset tracking. This creates a secure environment for digital data sharing. At a gargantuan Meanwhile, new business combinations are hitting healthcare, too.
This newfound capacity will be a game changer for governments and their citizenry. The technology is an effective foundation to help industry redesign organizations, products, and services at a time when collaboration, consortiums, and networked alliances are the new competitive advantage.
A public blockchain is a fully decentralized platform where anyone in the world can view and add information to the platform as well as contribute to the consensus process.
Those that choose to insulate themselves will find an already volatile and competitive global economy even more inhospitable. Today, the lack of data sharing between disparate health IT systems and vulnerability to security risk, has limited healthcare providers to effectively communicate and provide the highest quality of care.
While battles over health reform rage throughout Congress, Americans continue to be faced with soaring costs, quality of care deficiencies and barriers to medical service access.
An example of where blockchain could assist in compliance is with the administrative simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act HIPAAwhich require healthcare providers and payors known as covered entities enter into business associate agreements with vendors i.
Storage complexity can be an ROI killer. Health management and administrative systems are rife with inefficiencies, misaligned incentives and remain relatively untouched by innovation.
Blockchain offers so much promise, in part, because it: For those who day trade, the concept of self-executing contracts is not new.By enabling health IT systems with the technology, all the existing challenges like security, reliability, privacy and even data interoperability can be addressed and fixed.
It gives timely access to data that healthcare professionals can use to make crucial diagnosis and deliver appropriate treatments.
Distributed: Health is just around the corner, and so is voting day! Just a reminder that if you live in Nashville, you still have a few hours left in early voting - and if you'll be attending from out of state, remember to check your early voting times, so that you can take part in the democratic process AND ensure you don't miss a minute of the intersection of blockchain tech and healthcare!
