Yet despite these advances, there is a long way to go. The proliferation of data services who store this critical information has resulted in a patchwork of competing systems that is difficult to navigate, hampering accessibility to patient data when crossing platforms. A recent MIT technology review found 26 different electronic medical record systems being used in the Boston area alone! Such examples illustrate the drastic need for a distributed, easily accessible network.
Blockchain technology presents a tantalizing solution to this problem. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) can be leveraged to eliminate the … Read the rest
Global supply chains account for a total market value of $40 trillion annually, and stand to benefit greatly from the latest advances in blockchain technology.
