BACK TO EVENTS
Blockchain offers providers and patients greater security in communication and increased consistency across visits and treatments. Blockchain offers the pharmaceutical industry and its regulators a reliable way of tracing the sources of medications and keeping track of the testing process behind them. Insurers can rely on Blockchain to help simplify adjustments, billing, and claims.
No matter which of these categories you fall into, The Blockchain for Healthcare Opportunity Summit offers you the speakers, content, and insights needed to capitalize on Blockchain and Distributed Ledger technologies. You will leave this event ready to provide increased value and security to your customers, clients, and stakeholders.

09:15 - Opening Session: Blockchain Opportunities for Patient Data Donation & Clinical Research
Opening Session: Blockchain Opportunities for Patient Data Donation & Clinical ResearchClinical research is the foundation for medical innovation that can positively impact patient lives, yet significant barriers exist that inhibit the secure and efficient sharing of patient information. Through blockchain’s unique capabilities, there exists the potential to bridge the gap and provide a new platform for patients to be incentivized to share their data to support clinical research. Deloitte & Pfizer have led interactive workgroups and published perspectives on this subject and will share their learnings.Munther Baara, Director, Clinical Innovation, PfizerAditya Kudumala, Principal, Deloitte
10:00Profit Potential of Blockchain Healthcare InitiativesIn order to roll out an innovative technology, you first have to create an environment that encourages and supports organizational innovation. J&J has built a series of “Jlabs” around the country that provide spaces and resources for creative employees to explore the true value that blockchain technology offers for major healthcare organizations.Katherine Merton, Head JLabs, Johnson & Johnson
10:35Blockchain for Increased Trust in Clinical TrialsClinical trials play a huge role in pharmaceutical approvals and access. These trials, however, have a history rife with lack of repeatability, unclear processes and inaccurate documentation. Blockchain can help streamline and secure the complex series of steps involved in conducting and sharing the results of clinical trials.Basker Gummadi, Blockchain and Innovation Lead, BayerShwen Gwee, General Manager, Digital Accelerator, NovartisMark Graves, Co-Founder, CEO, CTO, MyIREJoshua Ashley Klayman, Co-Chair, Blockchain + Smart Contracts, Morrison & Foerster LLPModerator: Mike Edelhart, Managing Director, Social Starts
11:15 - Networking BreakProvider Licensure & Credentialing with IBM BlockchainAs care becomes more digitally connected, traditional geographic boundaries are beginning to blur. Tele-health, remote specialty consults, and the growing desire of consumers to seek out the best possible value no matter where that care is centered have made it more common for providers and consumers to collaborate across health systems or state lines. For payers and providers, the financial imperative to keep patients in-network and prevent leakage in the era of value-based care adds an additional layer of complexity to the problem of managing credentials, ensuring correct licensure, and keeping up with employment changes. Blockchain may offer a solution to these issues by keeping all members of the community instantly updated on where a provider is allowed to practice, whether or not she is accepting new patients, and what new affiliations she has formed. Accurately tracking providers as they move through their careers can improve patient safety, reduce frustration for consumers, allow employers to assess potential workers more completely, and possibly even prevent employee fraud or abuse.
13:25Raising Capital to Drive Blockchain for HealthcareWith over $12.5 billion raised by ICOs since their inception, and with Regulation A+ as an on ramp, the traditional venture capital raising methods seem to be continually in flux. Please join us for a compelling conversation as we explore the various alternative capital raising strategies that can be utilized by companies in the ever-evolving Blockchain space.Spencer Klein, Partner & Co-Head of the M&A and Life Sciences Groups, Morrison & Foerster LLPMark Elenowitz, Founder and CEO, TriPoint Global EquitiesCass Sanford, Associate General Counsel, OTC MarketsModerator: F.

15:00Evaluating the Potential of Patient Data OwnershipBlockchain offers great potential in the form of patient data ownership and transparency between providers and payers. There is currently however, no precedent for getting all of the participants in a healthcare system to cooperate and collaborate on a technological rollout of this scale. This panel will discuss the promising value of increase patient data ownership as well as some of the roadblocks on the path to blockchain transformation.Suzanne Belinson, Executive Director, Blue Cross Blue ShieldWes Donohoe, VP, Product, One MedicalIn Conversation with: Ashish Atreja, Chief Innovation Officer, Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY
