We can all agree it’s unreasonable to command a newborn to jump rope in its hospital crib. It’d be just as silly to ask a first-year medical student to be head of an intensive care unit.
So why would anyone expect that blockchain technology, in its relative infancy, is already at work in the healthcare industry?
A number of healthcare businesses have already implemented this technology in their processes. Experts agree that use cases for the blockchain in healthcare remain largely unfulfilled. There’s plenty of talk of its potential — it can store medical records and keep track of how pharmaceuticals move through a supply chain — but live applications remain few and far between.
Give it time.
