Blockchain in Healthcare: Will You Lead or Follow?
Who will lead blockchain innovation in healthcare? Hillary Ross considers this question in an article for Healthcare Informatics. “Leadership for this new and important strategy is key to the success of its implementation and utilization,” she writes. “Senior level leadership will be tasked with defining the vision and setting the path for achieving benefits within the healthcare ecosystem. Highly strategic, blockchain-related roles either belong in the C-suite or reporting there. Is it part of the CIOs office, senior administration, quality/innovation or its own department? With its relatively complex technical nature, blockchain-related roles will absolutely need a highly skilled team of support. In addition to a specialized team, there also will be a budget to support the initiatives involved.”
