In the face of rising medical costs, data breaches, claims-related frauds, and counterfeit drugs, a number of organizations are betting on blockchain to bring greater transparency and cost-effectiveness to the healthcare industry. Blockchain startups, technology leaders as well as healthcare solution providers have joined forces to address age-old challenges and are creating new business models in the process. While governmental stance on the use of blockchain-enabled healthcare solutions is largely unclear in most countries, policies on health insurance, medicaid expansion, health information exchange (HIE), among others, have been favorable in this direction.

At present, a majority of market players are focused on developing blockchain solutions in segments like medical and health records, supply chain management, clinical trials, and billing and claims management. As tech companies continue to innovate healthcare-specific blockchain solutions, the industry is expected to witness significant development of decentralized patient records as a platform (dApp), which will offer ease of access and universal identities to patients.

This report takes a closer look at the uses cases, startups, pilot projects, and innovation trends to understand where the industry lies in the blockchain adoption life cycle and what changes to expect by 2028-30.
