Panel: I Understand Blockchain, What Else Do I Need to Know?

Date/Time: Monday, February 11th 10:00am – 11:00am.

This session will cover topics beyond what blockchain is. We will look at non-technical requirements and hurdles, available platforms and how they differ, and arm you to evaluate why now and what’s coming. You didn’t deploy internet and you won’t deploy blockchain. Network design, protocol, participation, governance,  scalability, interoperability, legal considerations, and what’s next are all important parts of the decision to use blockchain. What do you really need to know to get behind a blockchain project?
  • Outline considerations beyond the technology and what has worked in current blockchain projects in healthcare
  • Discuss what and where blockchain is today and what is realistic in the near future
  • Review how to evaluate your use case and if you need a blockchain
  • Identify the platforms being used today and some of their differences
  • Look at what is coming and how to be ready
