One of the most talked about technologies of 2018 is Blockchain. The blockchain technology market is expected to grow to 2.3 billion US dollars by 2021, from 339.5 million US dollars in 2017. With an annual growth rate of 61.5%, it is one of the fastest growing technologies in the healthcare industry. It is vital to first understand the nature of blockchain technology, to differentiate the hype from the reality and then to see real-world case studies of how blockchain can be, and is being, applied to pharma and healthcare systems. Blockchain is quickly increasing in interest and has received praise for its far-reaching applications, mainly because of its recent expansion into pharmaceutical companies. Blockchain holds great potential as a unified solution for efficient and secure management of pharmaceutical supply chains around the globe. Its uniquely distributed network would enable the development of complete end-to-end supply chain management for every company and product. By allowing multiple stakeholders to participate in distributing the network, it creates an incredibly secure database, without the patchwork configuration of previous supply chain technologies. Some of the most important features of blockchain in pharma have yet to be fully developed and realised in the industry.
Pharma Blockchain 2019 will address some of the most achievable possibilities of integrating blockchain within pharma and healthcare. Through a mixture of practical, lectures and roundtable discussions specifically designed to help you get to grips with the technology, learn from those already benefitting from blockchain systems and overcome obstacles associated with integration, the event will help you join the future of the pharma and healthcare industry. With enhanced networking sessions, an evening social and a buzzing exhibition room the event is one not to be missed.
