Comprehensive coverage of blockchain action taking place in the healthcare and pharmaceuticals industry. Blockchain Projects, use cases, consortia, enterprises involved, executive decision makers, and benefits of blockchain adoption.

Blockchain Use Cases

Enterprises from the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries as well as several government departments responsible for healthcare have been very proactive in embracing the blockchain technology. These organizations are testing the blockchain technology for 14 different use cases including, patient data management, medical license management, staff identity management, and health insurance claim adjudication, among others.

There are more than 65 enterprise blockchain projects underway across the globe. The adoption is well-spread among different categories – healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, government departments and agencies, NGOs, drug and distributions companies.

Blockchain Projects

Countries where Blockchain Projects are Underway

The adoption of this technology within the healthcare sector is widespread in terms of countries where the projects are underway, however, the concentration of these projects high in the developed world, especially in the United States. 

These projects are being executed by a mix of large system integrators, specialist blockchain vendors, consulting companies and in-house research teams at insurance companies. There is no clear template for engaging blockchain vendors yet, and different enterprises are using different combinations of Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) providers, customized application developers, distributed application platforms (dApps), and inhouse IT teams.

Enterprises Involved in Blockchain Projects

More than 85 enterprises, government organizations, and regulators have come forward to test this new technology.

These enterprise blockchain projects are helmed by senior executives that include a combination of business and technology decision-makers from enterprises as well as technology and consulting solution providers.

Blockchain Consortia

The urgency for blockchain adoption, within the healthcare industry can also be underlined by the fact that four industry consortia have already been formed by industry participants, which also includes regulators. The formation of consortia will lead to faster and wider implementation of the use cases.
