Since Bitcoin was first released in 2009, it and other cryptocurrencies have surged in popularity, eclipsing a combined value of $300B in November, 2017. Bitcoin’s major innovation was the utilization of a cryptographic, immutable, distributed ledger, known as a “blockchain,” that is used to keep track of all bitcoin transactions.
It turns out the underlying blockchain technology can be leveraged in far more than just monetary systems, and can be abstracted to hold arbitrary types of data.
From healthcare, to real estate, to education, to finance, many of these industries depend upon trusted intermediaries to share and distribute information; where there are trusted intermediaries, there is an opportunity for blockchain to disrupt.
In this presentation Jad will briefly cover the basics of blockchain, with a focus on potential applications within the medical space. He will also present the work he’s done during his master’s dissertation demonstrating the feasibility, and utility, of a blockchain-based care coordination system.
Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the types of problems blockchain can solve, and some potential applications of blockchain within the medical space that include, but are not limited to, supply chain logistics, IoT devices, health record management, health data markets, and more.
