Hashed Health has added Accenture as a member of the Hashed Health Blockchain Consortium, a group of leading health companies focused on accelerating innovation with blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, as announced today at the Distributed: Health 2017 conference. As a consortium member, Accenture will focus its efforts on developing industry use cases for blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and identify opportunities where organizations can implement solutions at scale.
Accenture helps institutions implement blockchain technology to improve operational efficiency, security and client service, as well as to capture new revenue opportunities. It helps clients define distributed-ledger strategies, implement business-model transformations, create and protect technology architectures and enhance the end-user experience.
“While adoption grows, healthcare organizations must continue advancing the application of blockchain technologies to achieve and sustain meaningful progress,” said Brian Kalis, managing director of digital health at Accenture in a statement. “We believe that Hashed Health’s workgroup-centered model will allow companies to collaboratively tackle existing problems in healthcare while establishing best practices.”
