Block-Education: Applying a “Fit-for-Purpose” Framework to Advance Health Blockchain Education
Session Description: This session will provide an overview of the “fit-for-purpose” framework that is applied to blockchain and healthcare education at UC San Diego in professional and continuing education offerings and as planned through future graduate course offerings. The presentation will outline how blockchain healthcare use cases need to be “fit-for-purpose” within the context of blockchain design principles and expected outcomes. The three primary use cases used in this course design are: (1) pharmaceutical supply chain; (2) medical device; (3) clinical trials. We will also describe how this educational content is taught in different ways through lectures, case studies, and applied group work that is then subject to presentation and judging by outside experts. This general education approach to blockchain that differs from the majority of online offerings is currently being used and expanded at UC San Diego but also has the potentially to be applied in other settings.
