Blockchain is at the top of the heap when it comes to hot disruptive technologies and it’s data collection and management capabilities will revolutionize the way health information is managed.  The benefits are still to be realized as this technology is still in its infancy, but it is thought that it will be most often used in a very challenging area, interoperability and of course  privacy and security (the main tenant of blockchain tech).  There are very lofty goals of improved health information exchange and patient safety and outcomes.

Healthcare is still embracing all that is Tech!  There are many innovative uses of information and technology offer endless benefits to healthcare organizations and to the health and lives of individuals, families and populations around the world. It ensures accurate information is available at the point of care. It enables personalized care based on a patient’s profile and needs. It enhances the patient and provider experience.
