Cutting Pleasantries: Blasting a Clear Path Forward for a New Era in Healthcare
Session Description: Over the past years many companies and pundits have discussed the adoption of distributed ledger technologies, aka blockchain for healthcare applications. This panel will discuss the juxtaposition of the so-called Health IT industry and the myriad of applications that would positively reduce friction between the provider and consumer. This improved interaction will also reduce costs and bring true transparency to all transactions in healthcare. Many believe that the Health IT industry is completely homeostatic for any type of true disruption. Why does the industry trumpet disruption when their actions speak louder than words? We address these concerns with leaders on the cutting edge of technology.
