Blockchain Technology at Saint Lukes Health Network
October 12, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Chad Brisendine, VP/CIO, St. Luke’s University Health Network, and Rob Faix, VP Technology Services, Impact Advisors, LLC, introduce the fundamentals of blockchain technology, practical application, impacts, and benefits to the healthcare industry. Blockchain technology, most notably associated with the digital currency Bitcoin, continues to be explored as a technology framework for the trusted sharing of information of all types. As the healthcare industry continues to emphasize the need for increased interoperability and the sharing of information between healthcare organizations and patients, blockchain technology has emerged as one potential solution. Recently, St. Luke’s created an internal IT Think Tank to explore emerging technologies, like blockchain, and identify potential use cases to satisfy current or future business needs.
