The Inaugural Blockchain Conference for the Healthcare Industry
The healthcare industry is ripe for optimization. Information about an individual's health ranks among the most privileged data in existence, yet major data breaches continue to occur at an alarming pace. Critical patient records are barely able to travel between neighborhood clinics, much less across starte or national borders. Blockchain technology offers a real and lasting solution not only to healthcare privacy but to the transparency, immediacy and accuracy that can save both money and lives.
Distributed: Health is a forum where healthcare leaders blockchain innovators from around the world are coming together for the first time to reimagine how electronic medical records, pharmaceutical inventory management, medical payments, connected devices, real-time analytics, insurance claim processing, systems interoperability, personalized health and more can be streamlined with this revolutionary technology.
Together, we'll drill down into the business cases, technical considerations, regulatory approaches and proof-of-concept demonstrations that will reshape the future of health and medicine.
The conference will feature a 24-hour hackathon prior to the conference itself. Participants will have 24 hours to build and then demo an original blockchain-powered application in competition for more than $20,000 in cash prizes.
Our speaker lineup features healthcare executives and leading blockchain innovators including:
John Bass, CEO, InVivoLink, an HCA Company
Jeff Cunningham, CTO, Informatics Corporation of America
Micah Winkelspecht, Founder and CEO, Gem
Russell Moore, Director, Client Consulting, TSYS
