Dr. Ann Ingraham

The session will address the nationwide whole patient care coordination challenge that is hampered because of the lack of healthcare interoperability. The lack of interoperability negatively impacts the seamless flow of health information to the right people, at the right place, and at the right time to better inform decision-making, improve the health of the individual, community, and population, and facilitate the Quadruple Aim. The Quadruple Aim addresses improved quality, improved patient-centered care, improved value-based care, and improved provider experience. The use of blockchain ledger technology as a platform for healthcare delivery integration will enhance data transparency, traceability, trust, data sovereignty, and tamper resistance. These blockchain technology capabilities will promote elevated interdisciplinary healthcare delivery within a patient’s care ecosystem and lessen the interoperability gap.

Time: 75 Mins including Q & A

What you will learn and key takeaways:

  1. Understand the nationwide challenges faced because of the healthcare IT interoperability gap
  2. Understand how the use of blockchain ledger technology can be used as a healthcare delivery platform to close the interoperability gap
  3. Understand how the use of blockchain ledger technology can positively impact the Quadruple Aim
  4. Outline strategies for implementation
  5. Outline strategies for technology adoption and acceptance

It is designed to drive strategic thinking in the topic of the session.

“Connecting the Roots, Building Networks Together for Profit and Purpose”

Digital Transformation, FinTech & Artificial Intelligence. Blockchain technology is a transformative technology of the 4th and 5th industrial revolutions. Healthcare delivery and the digitization of healthcare data can be better enhanced and improved by adopting and incorporating blockchain information technology into the overall healthcare delivery ecosystem — therefore, closing the interoperability gap. Additionally, exposure to the benefits of this innovative nascent technology outside of FinTech can reduce the gap in knowledge and bolster its application in healthcare for Caribbean as well as mainstream health care providers.

The session will drive UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #3 – Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being by demonstrating and contributing to the conceptualization and education of how blockchain technology can improve healthcare digitization and delivery by reducing the interoperability gaps.

In addition it brings information often priced out of access by many in the BCAME Community (Black, Caribbean, Asian and Other Minority Groups).  Equity, inclusiveness by affordability and acess as well as SDG 4 – Quality Education gets boost from this session.
