Blockchain and Healthcare
The next generation of connected technologies, lead by the blockchain revolution, promises industry-changing disruptions throughout the healthcare sectors.
ConsenSys Health offers more secure ways to engage with data, more sophisticated ways to derive value from patient experiences, and more interconnected methods of collaboration by leveraging the intersection of these two essential pillars of our future: blockchain technology and modern medicine
What Exactly is Blockchain?
Originally conceived as the underlying protocol of Bitcoin, blockchain technology has since evolved to support a number of applications with the introduction of “smart contracts” in Ethereum. It offers a number of improvements over traditional centralized computing and databases for certain applications. For the first time, blockchain technologies offer the following digital capabilities: immutability, decentralization, cryptographic security and self-executing smart contract code.
“Think of Ethereum as a world computer. What Bitcoin does for payments, Ethereum does for anything that can be programmed.”Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum Inventor
