Bring on the built-in trust of blockchain

Let’s talk about trust. It’s a word that gets bounced around quite a bit in the healthcare technology conversation. But what if “trustless” was an idea we should be paying just as much attention to? Blockchain is sometimes called a trustless network — not because business partners don’t trust each other, but because in a trustless network, they don’t have to. And that’s a good thing.

A trustless network brings information together and provides control over that information, allowing merchants to count on its accuracy without having to rely on third-party intermediaries. Trust is built in; middlemen are left out.

The power to revolutionize healthcare

Before we get too far down the trustless road, let’s take a closer look at blockchain and why it matters.

Simply put, blockchain holds the potential to revolutionize healthcare by putting the patient at the center of all operations. And the entire system is overhauled with better security, privacy and accessibility. But how exactly does blockchain make all of this happen?

Simply put, blockchain holds the potential to revolutionize healthcare by putting the patient at the center of all operations.

In a nutshell, by streamlining complicated processes and protecting them from tampering. It offers control over information, which provides trust that the information is accurate. And because blockchain tracks every record, the technology is auditable in real-time. That means no more painful pharmacy benefit audits. And by offering the added advantage of data ownership, plan sponsors don’t have to pay for access to what’s already theirs.

For these reasons and more, a blockchain-based platform that connects employers, insurers, pharmacies, and consumers, stands to replace the costly, centralized reimbursement model we know now.
