It seems like there is no day that goes by without hearing or reading about something blockchain or cryptocurrency related. Many people are not only are confused as what Blockchain is, but also wonder what the hype is all about. Much is still unknown about the technology and the real applications, but it’s certainly making headlines and people are diving in trying to learn.

Today, there are a number of emerging use cases and applications across various sectors, predominantly in FinTech. Healthcare, based on the need for extreme security and tracking of information, has emerged as an industry where there can be incredible impact. As applications and technology are becoming more widely discussed, this area is emerging and we will hear more about the impact overtime.

HealthTech Women has brought together some leading female influencers in the blockchain and healthcare industries to discuss the basics of blockchain. We will dive deep into various applications in healthcare such as data exchange and interoperability, claims and billing management as well as Population health.
