Healthcare: Unblocked

October 13, 2017 / 9.30am - 5.30pm / Tech UK, 10 St Brides St, London EC4A 4AD


Standard Ticket £300

Healthcare: Unblocked is Europe’s first public event fully dedicated to explaining, understanding and pursuing the potential of Blockchain technology to deliver healthcare innovation. Did you know that Blockchain projects in healthcare are already a reality and that many other exciting new projects are being conceptualised or piloted right now? A recent report from Deloitte showed that 35% of surveyed healthcare and life sciences organisations plan to deploy blockchain technology in the coming year: this would outpace blockchain adoption in other industries. And among executives with blockchain knowledge, over half (55%) said their company’s competitiveness would be hurt if they failed to adopt blockchain.

This unique conference will include a user-friendly introduction, designed to brief newcomers on what Blockchain technology is all about and why it is set to transform healthcare. This will be followed by a deeper look into specific areas where Blockchain and Distributed Ledger technology is creating waves of innovation – from improving the quality and integrity of medical data, reducing the threat of counterfeit medicines, through to speeding up healthcare insurance claims, and transforming the possibilities of wearables to enhance wellness.

We are assembling a Who’s Who of Blockchain pioneers in healthcare including speakers from, Qadre, Distlytics, and The IOTA Foundation, as well as a start up showcase of new Blockchain healthcare applications. More agenda and sponsor details coming soon.
