This presentation described how blockchain can help address the following conditions:
1) 62% of insured adults rely on their doctors to manage their health records
2) 29% keep them in a file drawer or even a shoebox
3) Over 300 different EHR systems in use today,
4) 3 different IT systems of record for every encounter
5) On average we see 18.7 different doctors in our lifetime
6) Little to no communication among systems
7) Our medical records are scattered across many different types of systems controlled by many different IT departments and behind many different firewalls (no one has a holistic view of your health)
