Blockchain Technology in Healthcare Market Dynamics

Blockchain Technology to Offer Patient-Centric Business Model

Blockchain allows a transparent yet secure patient data management and enables tracking of data across computing devices. The blockchain technology offers a consistent database stored through a single record which users can easily trace and audit. Also, the decentralized database wherein copies of data are stored at multiple places without the need of a third-party administrator eliminate the need for a middleman, thereby reducing the administration cost. These benefits allow the blockchain technology to maintain a transparent patient database, thereby holding the potential to establish a patient-centric business model in the healthcare systems. Blockchain technology in healthcare market is likely to benefit due to this.
