LifeSciences BC and JLABS: The Future of Blockchain in Healthcare

February 28, 2019

Have you ever needed to go to a walk-in clinic or emergency room, and been frustrated when you need to run through your entire medical history with the doctor because they don’t have access to your files? With blockchain, this is going to and has already started to change.

Blockchain technology has the potential to transform healthcare by placing the patient at the center of the health care ecosystem. It has the ability to create a secure, private, global database that will lead to better patient care and stable, protected personal medical information. Blockchain has the ability to shift precision medicine from a trial concept to common practice.

Join JLABS and LifeSciences BC to learn more about blockchain’s role in the healthcare sector, and how it will (or will not) improve and change the patient experience. Through our presentation and panel discussion, you will see real-world examples of use cases, applications, and hear a real discussion on if blockchain will really do everything we think.
