Blockchain Technology for the Internet of Medical Things

Speaker:  Gautam Srivastava – Brandon, MB, Canada
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


The healthcare industry has been at the cutting edge of technology since time immemorial. Hardware, software, medication, surgical procedures; the quality of care available to patients in 2022 has never been better. And yet, the administration and data management underpinning that care is severely lagging behind. In this talk, we will examine how Blockchain Technology may be a game changer for the Medical profession. The technology most commonly associated with Bitcoin could actually transform how we manage electronic medical records (EMR). Deploying EMR using blockchain has the potential to fundamentally disrupt the healthcare industry for good. During this tutorial, we will look at the pros as well as the cons of such implementations. We will dive into current research that is ongoing in this growing field and try to predict future directions this research may take.
