Report Introduction

Blockchain in Healthcare

Blockchain is one of those buzz words you can hardly miss in the media these days. Yes, it was propelled to the public imagination with the rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but the technology can have many other uses cases beyond moving money from one side of the planet to the other.

In fact, it is now in minds of many tech giants and even governments which can clearly see blockchain's power to transform how businesses operate by decentralizing business models, creating more efficient processes, and providing a more secure and reliable way to exchange data.

The healthcare industry is one of the sectors where blockchain can really prove its worth. For one thing, it can reduce the liability and accuracy concerns related to the exchange of medical data, while providing cryptographic security to protect patient identity "out of the box." Eventually, every patient will have its own "data wallet" to store and manage his/her medical records, and provide third parties with access to that data when needed.

Beyond health records, the technology could also be used to automate many administrative tasks in healthcare, thus removing human errors in areas such as payment processing and claim adjudication, which in turn could lead to improved accuracy and reduced costs.

Another use case for blockchain is in supply chain management, where a decentralized network could help medical suppliers and pharmaceutical companies better track how their products are moving from the production facilities around the world to a local pharmacy and to the patient.

And that's just a start... In this research brief, we'll take a look at some of the use cases for blockchain in the healthcare space. As the possibilities of and interest in the technology grow, more companies will be jumping on the bandwagon, creating even better solutions some of which we may not be able to imagine today. And that, we think, is what the idea of progress is all about.

Is This The Report For You?

DHbriefs reports are made for today's busy people, including:

Pharma
You probably already know Big Pharma is investing millions in digital health technologies. After all, it is easier and more affordable to launch a digital therapeutic than develop a brand new drug with all the lab work and trials, let alone regulatory requirements, that come included with a brand new drug launch.

Payors
Digital health apps and services provide insurance companies and other payors with tools they could offer to their customers so they could lead healthier lives. As a result, payors get to save money and offer better, more personalized services — i.e. the more you walk every day, the lower premium you end up paying. Ultimately, such incentives also lead to better outcomes.

Software developers
With the growth of digital health, we saw many non-traditional players entering the space — software developers being one of them. They see there's money to be made by helping doctors and hospitals digitize their businesses while providing patients with that much better services. In that sense, our reports help software developers find their niches in the market and even potential partners.

Job seekers
Digital health is the industry every job seeker should try to break into. It is growing fast, offering huge opportunities for everyone looking for a great career (and a fat paycheck, we might add). The best part is that you don't have to be a software developer — there are job openings across the board, including in marketing, sales, social media, PR, admin, and more. And YES, our reports will give you an unfair advantage on the market.

And that's not all...

growth

We are also confident that our reports will help other parties, including (but not limited to):

  • Investors in the (digital) healthcare or those looking to enter the space
  • Contract Research Organizations (CROs)
  • Healthcare business analysts
  • Savvy physicians looking to familiarize themselves with modern technologies
  • Government-employed healthcare professionals
  • The NGO sector involved in the healthcare space

As well as for everyone else looking to advance his/her career by being ahead of the curve.

But don't take our word for it. Here's what some of our clients have said about reports:

caret-down caret-up caret-left caret-right
"As a mid-level manager in a relatively small pharmaceutical company, I'm trying to read as much information as I can - so I could advance in my career and even change jobs. Yes, I get a ton of material from our corporate Intranet but all of it is organized in some strange way. I prefer going through your reports on my iPad - they provide me with structured information and I'm honestly now better prepared for what lies ahead. Thanks!"
Jonathan Brown London, UK

"I work for at a major Medicare Advantage Plan and honestly, I never thought I'll need or want to get a report from a third party. At our company, they send us more brochures and information than any human can possibly comprehend. But I decided to try your Premium Membership and I'm glad I made the move. Now I much better understand up and coming technologies that will be relevant for my work in the next few years. I also like the way how reports are structured which makes them easy to grasp."

Jennifer Wilson Massachusetts, USA
"Me and my web dev team were looking to enter the digital health market but didn't know where to start. We've searched the internet and read all we could but it was overwhelming and hard to grasp. Your [Senior Care 2.0] report helped us select the niche we want to compete in and now we're back in development mode with our first product launching in 6 months. Thanks a ton. Well worth the money!"
David Zielinski Krakow, Poland

The main idea behind our reports is to save time and consequently money. We did the research, spent hours and hours consolidating all the different information, and summed it all up for you. We are sure you have more important things to do - why bother with research when you can have everything delivered to your iPad, computer, or whichever device you happen to use.

While we're sure you have your own sources — and let's face it — some of which may be even better than ours (i.e. if you're an investor), we are sure you will appreciate our work as well. We took an extra effort to analyze and synthesize all the data, so you get only the good stuff.

There are no doubts that digital health technologies are booming. The question is not whether you should get "in"; the question is can you afford NOT to. Get our report and never look back. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee so you have nothing to lose.
