The intent of this webinar is to dispose of the hype, bring out the migration and operational issues to provide a clear strategy outline for moving forward with a blockchain solution Go-No Go decision and then making the right moves to actualize it.

Why you should Attend: In recent times, blockchain technology - usually in the form of cryptocurrency - has been extolled as the latest in a series of "silver bullet" solutions to certain nagging problems: supply chain and inventory control, records management, authentication, electronic contracts, and similar needs where tracking, item integrity and ownership, and authentication of claimed identity are of highest concern. But what to consider and how to decide?

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Hype points - define and eliminate
  • True points - define the real concerns and clarify them
  • Starting point - where to begin, steps to take, and decision points

Who Will Benefit:
  • COO
  • CIO
  • CISO
  • CPO
  • CFO
  • Other Business and Technology leaders within a Healthcare Organization
