Blockchain in Healthcare - Thematic Research

Summary

Blockchain technology, often referred to as distributed ledger technology (or DLT), is a means by which the participants in a distributed network can each maintain a copy of an immutable ledger of transactions, and where transactions can be executed without the need for a single, central, coordinating authority. The ability to effectively execute transactions without the presence of a central authority is regarded by many as the key benefit of blockchain technology. It creates the promise that organizations will be able to conduct business with one another without being subject to third-party control.

In the healthcare, blockchain technology will play a role in a wide range of processes, including sharing healthcare data, tracing supply chains, and optimizing the payment process. Blockchain will establish a means through which healthcare stakeholders, including patients, physicians, insurance companies, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, distributors, and government, can interact with each other using a transparent, trusted decentralized ledger.
