HIMSS Wine Down Wednesday- Blockchain in Healthcare

8/29/2018 4:00am, EDT - 5:30am, EDT

Join us at the HIMSS Innovation & Conference Center to celebrate making it half-way through the work week-- with beer, wine, and great views of Lake Erie! It's the perfect way to unwind as you keep up on new topics at the intersection of healthcare and technology.

Shane McNamee, will discuss the dire need in healthcare for Blockchain: a process of linking data, or blocks, together for more secure communication. Most specifically, how Blockchain can be used in patient identity matching and securing record access so that healthcare data can be utilized in advancing healthcare without sacrificing the privacy of the patients. Also, we will dive into the natural connections between Blockchain and FHIR standard that is currently used in healthcare for accessing discrete data from EHRs.

It all happens inside a global powerhouse of health innovation, the 30,000-square-foot HIMSS Innovation & Conference Center in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The space is designed to provide health professionals, developers, business executives, investors, students, researchers, HIMSS members and others with access to educational and business opportunities in a vibrant, interactive facility focused on the transformational promise of digital health innovation.
