The Power of Blockchain for Healthcare by Peter B. Nichol


Did you hear about blockchain technology, and how it impacts finance but were more interested in blockchain’s impact on healthcare?

The biggest opportunities for blockchain, still lie undiscovered—that is until now.

In this fascinating book, Peter B. Nichol, an MIT Sloan School of Management recognized CIO and award-winning innovation leader, explores how blockchain can transform healthcare.

In fact, investors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and executives are searching to identify the changes that will result from the introduction of blockchain technology to healthcare. Previously, a book didn’t exist that comprehensively covered the impact of blockchain on healthcare in a practical and fun discussion. Today, we will step outside the headlines and into the unchained world of blockchain technology.

In The Power of Blockchain for Healthcare, author Peter B. Nichol highlights where blockchain is emerging with the potential to transform the patient experience—from payers to providers to patients—embracing blockchain to create sustainable competitive advantages. Nichol magnifies the principles and use cases pioneering a new frontier to revolutionize the healthcare experience. Based on his articles, blogs, and musings, the book shows what is required to transform healthcare from the inside. It explains practical uses for blockchain in a straightforward conversation: what can blockchain do, how will it impact our health, and why should you care as a business leader? Within these parts, you’ll learn:

  • How blockchain can help patients.
  • How to unchain, existing models to rebuild trust in healthcare.
  • How pockets of innovation will energize healthcare.
  • How curiosity will uncover new value for our healthcare ecosystem.
