Rising use of blockchain in the healthcare sector

With the increasing investments and spending in healthcare, surging hospital costs, growth in healthcare data storage, and other related factors, the necessity of advanced distributed ledger systems and technology will continue to surge at an exponential rate. According to the World Health Organization, global healthcare spending rose between the years 2000 and 2019 reaching more than US$8.3 trillion. Moreover, according to statistics compiled by Dell EMC, healthcare organizations, worldwide, had seen s surge in health data growth rate of around 878%, since the year 2016, reaching around 8.41 petabytes. This has to a growth in data disruption attacks and challenged their resources and abilities to protect the data, across their respective networks. These developments are some of the major factors in the increasing usage of blockchain in healthcare. Blockchain in healthcare is used in several applications, such as protection of healthcare data, management of electronic medical record (EMR) data, electronic health records data management, personal health record data management, and other related applications. A single blockchain network could offer a secure and digital environment and create a universal electronic health record. Various companies have been making significant developments in the market, in the past few years. For instance, Abto Software provides and offers custom software services and blockchain solutions that enhance the collaboration between healthcare stakeholders, reduction in operational costs, and automate business processes.

As many Asian countries are mainly export-driven economies, blockchain-based apps and platform that optimizes trade finance transactions, are expected to gain ground and transaction in the coming years. Furthermore, Asian countries have a rising middle class and young population. For instance, India has a median age of 28.7 years and had been expected to rise by 1.04% in the year 2021, according to the country’s official sources. Major countries in the region have been making significant developments in the market, in the past few years. For instance, in 2019, The Monetary Authority of Singapore announced that it had built a blockchain-based multi-currency payment and transaction platform.

The novel platform had been able to process different currencies, within the same set of networks, and took the input of Temasek Holdings and JP Morgan to create. There have been other developments in the market in the past few years. China, one of the biggest economies in the world, has been accelerating its plans to develop and adopt blockchain technology, intending to become a world leader in this respective technology, by the year 2025. The country had announced the establishment of an advanced blockchain-based industrial system, to incorporate and use the technology into its development and economic plans.
