Tierion: ‘Separate Hype From Reality’
Tierion, which produced the report a year on from the start its blockchain healthcare project, seeks to highlight its findings as “separating the hype from reality.”
“Many blockchain reports portray overly optimistic scenarios,” the company explains. “We aim to provide a balanced perspective that addresses the opportunities and risks for the use of blockchain technology in healthcare.”
The report comes as the US government is turning its attention to blockchain healthcare, having announced a competition in July for companies to submit their most innovative implementations.
