Increasing Security and Safety in Healthcare: One Blockchain At A Time with Luciano Pesci of Emperitas

+ more

There have been numerous times in history where an invention’s initial application turned out to not be the optimal use of the idea (Post-it Notes and Play-Doh come to mind). Blockchain technology is mostly known to the general public as something to do with cryptocurrency, but business owners know there’s more to it. On today’s podcast, our host spoke with the CEO of Emperitas and a MarketScale regular, Luciano Pesci.

They discussed how a number of startups in the healthcare field are developing applications for the technology, the benefits blockchain can bring to the industry, and how patients will see increased benefits and safety. “A 2017 IBM survey found that about 16% of healthcare leaders planned to start experimenting with blockchain by the end of the year and 56% are expected to by 2020,” Pesci said.
