12 Prospective Blockchain Use Cases for Payer Care Management

By: Jeff RivkinResearch Director, Payer IT Strategies


This IDC Perspective explores the emerging set of care-related blockchain use cases for the healthcare payer vertical. Blockchain interoperability needs time, cooperation, and momentum to mature toward a wider scale of adoption and to truly impact health insurance and healthcare. However, the future is now, and the market clearly reflects much buzz around the technology and its potential for forming a next-generation vehicle for data management and middleware.

"Early adopters are passionate about how the promise of this particular middleware data management solution has caught on," says Jeff Rivkin, research director, Payer IT Transformation Strategies. "But with the potentials of payer-provider data integration, patient care optimization, and data access and control, which incentivize and optimize the behavior and care process, one must pay attention. Payers must be patient and steadfast through this technology's fits and starts. Don't get left behind."
