Blockchain, the distributed ledger technology at the heart of digital cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, has the potential to transform and re-imagine fundamental aspects of healthcare delivery. There are currently a number of key areas for blockchain's application for healthcare, including digital health identity, health data interoperability, supply chain validation, revenue cycle management, and clinical trials.
