Event Details

Digital transformation has become a strategic priority for healthcare industry participants as they strive to justify value in the anticipated data-driven, outcome-based reimbursement regime.

Regardless of digital initiatives, current limitations around security, integrity, and access control for healthcare data transactions are creating critical bottlenecks for care delivery innovation. This, in turn, creates an ineffective digital health workflow, with acute data silos impeding care coordination between different providers, hospitals and payers, and even various departments within a health system.

As healthcare continues to face difficulty identifying the trade-off between the risk and reward of going digital, the potential applications of blockchain and emerging distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) provide a path to mitigate pressing requirements.

We invite you to join Frost & Sullivan’s Transformational Healthcare team and industry experts to discuss blockchain technology with the most potential applications across the healthcare industry, including data interoperability, cybersecurity, insurance fraud management, and drug supply chain provenance. Learn how to differentiate the hype from reality and hear key strategic considerations for future success.

Expert insight you won’t want to miss:

  • Learn how blockchain and emerging DLTs offer the potential of a shared platform that can improve access control, authenticity, and integrity of protected data.
  • Gain insight into the potential to leverage blockchain technology to eliminate the costs and burden associated with data reconciliation, and how to better facilitate interoperability.
  • Listen as experts share thoughts on ways to position blockchain-based workflows to create new outcome-based care delivery and reimbursement models.

Key questions the webinar will answer:

  • What is blockchain technology and what are its implications for the healthcare industry?
  • What are the emerging DLTs beyond blockchain?
  • Who are the key stakeholders in the healthcare DLT and blockchain ecosystem?
  • What is the convergence potential for blockchain/DLT with emerging healthcare technologies?
  • What are the most promising application areas of blockchain/DLT for the healthcare industry?
  • What are the growth opportunities, and adoption and growth trends for healthcare use cases?
