There is no shortage of ideas in the
healthcare startup world. Healthcare entrepreneurs and innovators all around
the world are working to develop the right business models that can solve the
tough problems faced by the health sector, and many see blockchain technology
as a key for success.
As a testament to this, on November
5–6, 2018, the Distributed: Health
conference played host to investor pitch sessions during which 11 companies
proposed their ideas for addressing healthcare’s pain points with
decentralization. These pitch sessions were composed of a diverse audience of
healthcare professionals, investors and technologists.
