Opportunities and Challenges of Blockchain in Healthcare
Please join HBS Healthcare Alumni Association (HBSHAA) of Philadelphia and the Harvard Club of Philadelphia (HCP) for an informative discussion and Q&A covering opportunities and challenges in effectively realizing the transformative potential of blockchain in healthcare.
Blockchain is a rapidly emerging technology that will play an important role in reshaping the healthcare landscape in the accelerating move to value-based care. Blockchain is most well known as a method for decentralizing and improving security via a decentralized ledger system and most commonly associated with management of cryptocurrencies. However, its potential to help transform the health care industry is just beginning to be appreciated.
