Today we are talking about a complex, important industry: Healthcare.
It is especially poor in the United States, so we invited an expert: Ryan Kuriakose of the Open Health Exchange .
Ryan and I talk about the challenges of the current ecosystem and examine where blockchain tech may be able to help:
Data efficiency and control
the Big Pharma industry
Help for the underinsured
Service providers and the middlemen
Blockchain opportunities in the industry: peer to peer, logistics, empowerment and control of patient data
The Open Health Exchange, Ryan's platform
Why are prescription drugs so expensive? Why does everyone HAVE to have insurance?
In the future, will Peer to Peer healthcare become a dominating force?
