Blockchain in the healthcare sector
What influence do blockchains have on our everyday life? "Little to no influence" could be the answer right now. But the significance and opportunities of Blockchains are growing ceaselessly. One field of application that is currently being closely investigated is the healthcare sector.
Blockchains e.g. offer the ability to share patient data quickly and securely, as well as simpler compensation management and drug traceability and availability.
There are already several start-ups working with hospitals and healthcare organizations to digitize healthcare while ensuring safety at the same time.
The biggest challenge right now is strategic planning. Everyone involved must be ready to reconcile their platforms, protocols and systems. So, until the healthcare sector can really rely on blockchains, there is still a long way to go.
