Topic: How to effectively use blockchain based solution to tackle Opioid crisis.

Abstract: Patching Leaks in Opioid Prescription Drug Access with Blockchain: With each day that passes, more people are dying from opioid addictions and more people are becoming addicted. Pharmaceutical companies and hospitals are routinely deceived by patient addicts in order to gain drug access because there is no system that gives pharmacies and doctors a common operating picture of their patient’s opioid drug prescriptions. With blockchain as the common and unalterable ledger, the health and pharmaceutical industries can begin to contain the crisis.
