Implementation Considerations for Blockchain in Healthcare Institutions
Keywords:Blockchain technology, Healthcare institutions, Implementation, Immutability, Liquidity, Patient records, Protected health information, Tutorial
Objective: This article aims to provide a primer on blockchain technology and implementation considerations for blockchain at healthcare institutions.
Results: After research and interviews, we developed a primer and a high-level implementation guide for healthcare systems exploring the use of blockchain technology.
Conclusions: The use of blockchain technology in health care is at a promising stage in development but blockchain-based applications are yet to be demonstrated as a viable platform for exchanging and reviewing information. Healthcare systems should be cautiously optimistic regarding the potential of blockchain and do a thorough business and technical diligence that is driven by targeted use cases to be successful.
