It is a technology that is transforming the storage of patient data and securing nationwide interoperability, ensuring drug traceability, improving the authentication of health records, ensuring a higher probability of accurate diagnoses, more effective treatments, protecting genetic data and delivering cost-effective healthcare.

With its potential exceeding any other to revolutionise the healthcare industry, it is crucial for industry leaders and healthcare professionals to understand the nature of blockchain technology in order to foresee its impacts on their businesses.

Those who are interested in the possibilities of Blockchain and how it can be applied in the healthcare industry, should look no further than Global Engage’s brand-new event: the Blockchain in Healthcare Congress. Taking place in London on 3-4 May 2018, Blockchain in Healthcare Congress will provide the perfect opportunity to learn about the Blockchain and its possibilities.

Taking place over the course of two days, the congress will address some of the most achievable possibilities of integrating Blockchain within healthcare. During the first day of the congress, our world-renowned speakers will seek to answer the question: “What is Blockchain?” by disseminating hype from reality and exploring the challenges and opportunities of the Blockchain.

The second day of the conference will focus on Blockchain in pharma and precision medicine, with roundtable discussions, which will be focusing on the ways in which Blockchain can be incorporated into pharma models, using Blockchain for MedTech logistics, and using the technology for clinical trials and life sciences.

We have a stellar line-up of speakers, from industry leaders to academics, specialising in the field, including Katherine Merton, head of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Melek Somai, fellow in eHealth and Research at the Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering at Imperial College London, Disa Lee Choun, director of Head Data Acquisition at UCB, and John Bass, founder and CEO of Hashed Health.

Through a mixture of practical workshops, lectures, and roundtable discussions specifically designed to help you get to grips with the technology, learn from those already benefitting from Blockchain systems and overcome obstacles associated with integration, the congress will help you join the future of the healthcare industry.

Key players in Blockchain adoption consist of regulators, industry groups, academics, and market makers, so this conference provides something for everyone. With enhanced networking sessions, an evening social, and a buzzing exhibition room, the Blockchain in Healthcare Congress is not one to be missed!
