From Awareness to Possibilities: Blockchain Reducing the Interoperability Gap

The GBA Symposium on the Future of Money, Governance & the Law will include a discussion about Blockchain in Healthcare. As part of the symposium,  Dr. Ann Ingraham and Seth Pichette will be discussing the awareness and possibilities of leveraging blockchain in healthcare to reduce the technology interoperability gap. Nationwide whole patient care coordination is hampered because of the lack of healthcare interoperability. The lack of interoperability negatively impacts the seamless flow of health information across the care continuum to the right people, at the right place, and at the right time to better inform decision-making, improve the health of the individual, community, and population, and to facilitate the Quadruple Aim. 

Dr. Ann Ingraham and Seth Pichette bring awareness to the value of leveraging blockchain technology as an enabler and technical integrator to achieve the Quadruple Aim of quality care, lower per-capita cost, patient-centered care, and provider experience. Important to promote awareness and adoption of blockchain in healthcare is establishing awareness, developing a blockchain roadmap for healthcare, establishing standards, and identifying healthcare interoperability use cases. To demonstrate, Seth Pitcette presents the Blockchain Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) Drug Manufacturer To Consumer Provenance use case.
