The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the need for people to have more access to and control over their data in order to effectively manage their health and care. In addition, care teams and other healthcare stakeholders need a more complete picture of individuals, across the care continuum, in order to provide the best possible experience. To achieve this transformation, organizations need to break free from traditional silos to collaborate across boundaries with the goal of providing a better experience for people and their caregivers.

In the wake of COVID-19, there is an increased urgency to find innovative technology solutions to help solve the challenges healthcare is facing. With its open, interoperable platform, blockchain technology supports data sharing and transparency while ensuring privacy. In this webinar, we will discuss how blockchain technology can remove friction, build trust and unlock new value in the healthcare industry to tackle the most pressing challenges.

Attendees will learn:

  • How blockchain technology can help payers and providers partner to share relevant data while maintaining personal privacy and regulatory compliance
  • How blockchain can solve key challenges in the healthcare market around health status, member consent, supply chain, and value-based payments
  • Next steps and how to get started on your blockchain journey
