Blockchain technology has the potential to transform the current healthcare industry, as it aims to place the patient at the center of the health care ecosystem by means of increasing the interoperability, privacy, and security of health data. The vision for blockchain to disrupt traditional healthcare is far-reaching and full of promise, prompting healthcare providers and tech innovators to leverage blockchain solutions for organizations and providers throughout the healthcare ecosystem.
As the Healthcare industry shifts from legacy systems to blockchain, a greater understanding of the blockchain healthcare relationship is needed to encourage and ensure future adoption and implementation. In response to this need, Roosevelt Strategic Council will hold the Blockchain Health IT Summit on December 5-6, 2018, at the Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center, San Diego, California. This summit will provide a full-spectrum viewpoint of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies in the healthcare setting, and how this disruptive technology will transform healthcare systems and delivery, as well as traditional healthcare business practices.
