Over the course of recent years Blockchain technology has taken a variety of the globe’s industries by storm, at the same time building up a lot of hype, for healthcare included.

Blockchain technology works as a decentralized system that stores transactional records in interconnected blocks. This is where miners and cryptography come into play.

Blockchain technology in healthcare can positively effect the whole industry in different ways. 

Blockchain technology can revolutionize the following aspects of healthcare:

  • Management of medical records (transmitting medical data to the blockchain will serve as proof of data security and stability. Blockchain can ensure the integrity of data as well
  • Patient consent management (different states and countries have different consent regulations and privacy policies; blockchain can record the consent of every given patient and allow/forbid the use of certain data consequently)
  • Management of micropayments (i.e. healthcare plan rewards)
  • Elimination of insurance fraud (dishonest service providers and receivers will no longer be able to submit false claims to receive insurance benefits)
  • Boost the creation of a single global medical information database (currently, medical institutions perform drug testing and clinical trials locally)
  • Enable security in pharma supply chain (prescription drugs are consistently stolen and sold illegally, the losses of pharma industry reach $200 billion annually)

Both patients and service providers can benefit greatly from the intelligent incorporation of this technology. The most exciting opportunity this technology offers is probably the merging of patient’s data into one secure system that can be safely accessed by authorized people at all times and circumstances.

Nowadays the majority of health care institutions use outdated and inconvenient methods for dealing with medical data. They are various e-health records, prescription drug data, insurance information, patient medical data. Such data handling influences patient treatment and the speed of it. The whole situation is getting worse because most medical facilities in the health care sector have their own methods for storing and accessing medical data.

Problems in getting proper patient data can sometimes even mean the difference between life and death. These days, no universal method for storing data exists and there are no appropriate standards set in place. Thus, Blockchain and healthcare can come together to improve healthcare applications.

      Token is similar to Crypto coins, they both are used for buying and selling purpose but with slight differences like tokes can be used it is created industry alone. Example, if the token is developed for Entertainment purpose then it cannot be used in Hospitality industry. Tokens are cost-effective and easy to create, that is because the tokens are developed from the existing Blockchain and best example for that is, Ethereum Token - which is developed from the ethereum blockchain.

      As humans, we have a tendency to ignore the small tasks involved in a gigantic project. For example, we might relish the delivery of our new Play Station, but we would never give in a second thought about the fact that how it reached us!
      Well, it is not just about the single Play Station, but it's about the initial processing of every single product that's delivered to us. To be accurate, there is a complete chain of several interlinked elements, that take care of delivering the required products to us.
      Do you know what this connected chain is known as?
      From raw material sources and factories to the complete distribution network, it consists of several elements that interlink the complete process. Now let us get into some details.

      What Exactly Is Supply Chain Management?
      The proper management of the transferable goods, information, and services, which involves the movement and storage of raw materials, from one place to another is known as supply-chain management.
      It consists of well-integrated planning and final execution of several processes. Here are the major 3 things that it consists of:
      ·         Material flow
      ·         Information flow
      ·         Financial flow
      It consists of a network of several individual entities, businesses, organizations, and technologies that are involved in the manufacturing of goods or services. The chain usually starts from delivering the raw material to the manufacturer to providing the finished product to the user.
      A good flow of supply-chain can result in the generation of great sales and revenue. It is also responsible for the decline in frauds and any additional cost. Last but not least, supply-chain management is also one of the reasons behind the whopping production and distribution.
      Of course, it might appear as a piece of cake to you, but maintaining a supply-chain is nothing less than moving a mountain. The interlinking of several elements in businesses slowly becomes very difficult to maintain, as soon as the businesses start glowing. This is the reason why emerging businesses have started to adopt technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and most importantly blockchain technology.
      So today, let us see how blockchain is providing solutions to the problems faced bu supply-chain management.
      Blockchain Technology In Supply Chain Industry
      Let us check out the advanced and automated solutions provided by Blockchain technology to this Industry.
      1. Reduced Cost
      In supply chain management, the real-time tracking of goods and services, with the help of blockchain decreases the overall costs of moving the items. Apps based on blockchain technology reduces the frauds and scraps the risk of duplicity.
      2. Building Trust
      The most important thing that is necessary to maintain in complex supply-chain with several participants is trust. The immutable feature of blockchain technology guarantees the same.
      3. Provenance Tracking
      Gargantuan industries and companies have a lot going on in their supply chain. Which makes keeping track of every record very difficult. With blockchain-based supply chain management, provenance tracking gets a lot easier.
      The more we explore this area, the more solutions we would be able to discover. It would be interesting to see what the new decade would bring to the supply chain industry.
