Topic: Blockchain in the healthcare verticals
Speaker: Tim Mackey

UCSD and IEEE are co-sponsoring a 1.5 day workshop from May 24-25th. The workshop will provide attendees with an in-depth introduction to and exploration of healthcare applications for emerging blockchain-based technologies. These include a primer on the technology, practical approaches to designing a conceptualizing blockchain systems, legal and regulatory considerations, and privacy compliance among others. More focused discussions and a design session on various healthcare verticals such as medical devices, genomics, supply chain, and clinical trials will explore design, technical, and practical issues unique to each vertical.

At our March meeting, Mr. Mackey will preview some of the topics that will be covered at the workshop as well as give an introduction to blockchain. He will also discuss some of the many verticals that will be able to use this much talked about technology.

Everyone is welcome at our meeting, and registration is open for the workshop in May.
