Futurologists believe that the implementation of blockchain in healthcare is our imminent and very close future. Blockchain technology possesses such valuable features as transparency, security, decentralization, you can’t edit data.

It’s excellent for EHR sharing (electronic health records). Patients will be able to decide who gets access to their data; healthcare providers access the records securely, all information is HIPAA compliant and encrypted, info is synchronized between providers and patients.

However, each technology also has its limitations. Here, the modern blockchains are very slow; each transaction has some cost, and hardware costs are to grow exponentially to keep all the participants updated. So, the way out could be to merge blockchain technology with something like Amazon Web Services through APIs.
