Blockchain applications for healthcare have garnered significant attention recently. For example, as we recently blogged, five major healthcare companies – Humana, MultiPlan, Optum, Quest Diagnostics, and UnitedHealthcare – formed the Synaptic Health Alliance (the “Alliance”) to explore how blockchain technology could resolve current healthcare issues.

Next week, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference will take place in Orlando and will offer a full day symposium on How Blockchain Technology Brings Value to Healthcare. Our firm will have a strong attendance at this event and will provide a blog update on the events of the day. An overview of the symposia can be found here.

For additional details on blockchain and the healthcare industry see our prior blog post How Blockchain Can Impact Healthcare.

Check back next week for an update.
