TUESDAY DECEMBER 6, 2016
1 PM Eastern, 12 PM Central, 10 AM Pacific
EHR-to-EHR data exchange alone can't support healthcare's move to value-based care and its increased consumer focus. Blockchain will disrupt the interoperability status quo with its capability to support a seamless healthcare experience by centralizing, securing, and orchestrating disparate information. Attendees of this webinar will be able to confidently describe how blockchain works technically, how it's being used, and the healthcare opportunities it creates. They will also get a preview of DokChain, the first-ever running implementation of blockchain in healthcare.
This webinar is geared toward the following executives and professionals: Healthcare IT, Innovation, Technology, Patient Access, Patient Experience/Engagement, Product, Planning, Care Coordination, Population Health, for healthcare technology companies, hospitals, healthcare providers, payers, and BPO organizations.
Attendees will be able to:
1) Identify the fundamentals of blockchain
2) Describe how blockchain can provide an economic solution to value-based care
3) Articulate the value of smart contracts and where consensus mechanisms come in
4) Specify how blockchain can facilitate patient-centered care
