Hello to all crypto-enthusiasts and blockchain-learners!
I am happy to announce our next meetup in this season - Blockchain in Health industry.
Our first speaker will present the role of Blockchain Technology in Healthcare:
Tremendous developments of the blockchain technology happened over the last few years, and the interest for potential applications in healthcare is growing. However, the quest for a compliant digital health system that guarantees privacy and efficiency continues.

In this talk Alevtina Dubovitskaya will present applications of the blockchain technology in healthcare and analyze the challenges of adopting such system in medical practice.
