Digitizing patients EHR (Electronic Health Records) is the first critical step. Interoperability between EHR's remain one of the key barriers limiting the transition to value-based care. Is this an opportunity for blockchain based solution?
Great progress has been made in digitizing patients EHR (electronic Health Records). Some key challenges still remain.

Is this an opportunity for blockchain based solution?
More than 80% of doctors, have adopted electronic healthcare record systems, according to a new report from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT.
