[Virtual event] Winter 2017 Interoperability & Health Information Exchange Community Roundtable
January 18, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EST
The recent explosion in development of blockchain technologies – distributed shared ledgers, smart contracts, and to some degree cryptocurrencies – has the potential to up-end traditional barriers to widespread and standardized health information exchange, particularly to the benefit of the patient and care-giver. We’ll look at a number of use cases being actively developed by industry today, so as to see what might be possible, and what technical and business challenges still remain to overcome.
Hyperledger’s Executive Director, Brian Behlendorf will be presenting on The Potential for Blockchain Technology in HIT.
