Making Healthcare Secure

“..blockchain technology has the potential to transform healthcare, placing the patient at the center of the healthcare ecosystem and increasing the security, privacy, and interoperability of health data.”
– Deloitte

The healthcare industry is overflowing in data that is heavily fragmented across the healthcare ecosystem, which impacts the efficient delivery of healthcare services and research for all stakeholders – patients, providers, pharmaceuticals, insurance. Blockchain has the potential to solve for these inefficiencies as it enables solutions with increased security, trust, and traceability required to manage highly sensitive data. The promise of blockchain to transform healthcare has led to growing global interest.

Patientory Association is hosting its second annual blockchain healthcare summit – BlockHealth Summit at the Future Blockchain Summit in Dubai from April 1-3, 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Center. Join us at the BlockHealth Summit to hear directly from industry experts about this transformative technology and explore its potential to transform the healthcare ecosystem.
