BiHG Focus & Benefits

Advocacy Roadmap

BiHG is passionate about working collaboratively among its members to identify and promote best practices, along with challenging legal barriers in application of blockchain. FY19 will be dedicated to development of an advocacy roadmap beginning with the US that outlines proposed recommendations. This includes opportunities for industry self- governance, as well as communication of any specific policy, regulatory and/or legislative needs to appropriate governing entities.

Education & Awareness

The need for blockchain technology and distributed empowerment in healthcare is stronger now than ever before. BIHG increases awareness and educates healthcare stakeholders by engaging the clinical community and industry in proactive focused discourse across digital channels and live events, engages front line leaders in distributed ledger and blockchain case studies, and promotes action research among providers, payers, life science researchers, and health information technology experts. We also prioritize collaboration and participation as forms of real time education in order to create iterative learning opportunities that improve both human and technology processes across time. The BIHG education team teaches blockchain globally but helps you solve healthcare problems locally by learning in context. BIHG asserts that education is transformation and transformation through the use of blockchain to solve global healthcare problems will take long term sustainable teaching and learning approaches that adapt to local needs and conditions. We look forward to educating and transforming you!

Health Research

Health research is the foundation of evidence-based medicine and treatments that improve clinical outcomes. BiHG engages the research community to identify those points where blockchain can improve the process of bringing research from the bench to the bedside, from basic and pre-clinical biomedical science to clinical trials, population health studies, and ‘big data’ health data analyses. Across every phase of research, there are opportunities to apply blockchain and other emerging technologies to improve individual and global health.

Clinical Application and Adoption

One of the top critical barriers to mitigate for blockchain use in healthcare is appropriate application in the clinical space. BiHG is focused on support of high level adoption of blockchain in clinical applications by analyzing and promoting specific use case models that demonstrate overall positive impact, patient centered design, technical resilience (including data privacy and security) and economic sustainability.
