About the Episode

We decided to tackle an important, complex industry: Healthcare.

It is especially problematic in the United States, so we invited an expert based out of California: Ryan Kuriakose of theĀ Open Health Exchange.

Ryan and I talk about the challenges of the current ecosystem and examine where blockchain tech may be able to help:

  • Lowering costs
  • Data efficiency and control
  • the Big Pharma industry
  • Help for the underinsured
  • Service providers and the middlemen
  • Regulatory issues
  • Blockchain opportunities in the industry: peer to peer, logistics, empowerment and control of patient data
  • The Open Health Exchange, Ryan's platform
