The healthcare industry can greatly benefit from blockchain technology. Healthcare has been slow in adopting new technologies and most of them are centralized data systems, health data regulation, and a mandate to focus on digitizing medical data in partnership with different electronic medical record (EMR) service providers. The data in healthcare is siloed that is fragmented and does not interact with one another. The interoperability is important in scenarios where health care providers want to seek information of the patients, during medical trials accessing information of the participants, companies seeking to ensure the authenticity of drugs circulating global markets.
