CHI - Copenhagen Health Innovation
At this CHI Morgen Tuesday May 16, we will focus on blockchain to illustrate, if, why and how blockchain can make an impact in the public healthcare sector.
Convergence of existing and future technologies is foreseen to disrupt the public healthcare sector in the coming years, but their implications are hard to grasp for health professionals, government officials and decision makers.
One of these technologies is blockchain, which is the underlying technology behind Bitcoin. According to experts it has the potential to disrupt almost every sector. The banking sector, the Danish Tax Authorities and container freight companies like Maersk are already onboard, but what are the potentials in the public healthcare sector and how can the health professionals benefit from such a technology?
Join us and get an introduction to blockchain and concrete examples on how blockchain can be applied in healthcare today from
- Michel Avital, Professor at Department of IT Management at CBS
- Christian Lassen, Nordic Leader on Blockchain Technology at IBM.
