BlockTEST HealthChainHack Hackathon Opens to Merge Blockchain and Healthcare
Blocktest Set To Introduce HealthChainHack Hackathon
For many people, any new product being released by MIT, and which features a Chinese connection often gets them bullish or as excited as it means that the young, and bright minds of today are ready to become tomorrow’s leaders. Currently, everyone knows that blockchain and healthcare have started to collaborate.
It is something that has started to place MIT and its partnership with blockchain on an all new and interesting level. How does Blocktest feature in all this?
BlockTest has announced that it will be starting a hackathon that will be referred to as HealthChainHack. The hackathon is expected to be a two-month online-based competition that will make it possible for blockchain entrepreneurs to connect with people running the healthcare industries.
The competition started on 22nd September 2018. However, the organizers announced that registration for the completion would remain open until the tenth day of November. Given the rapid blockchain adoption, it has become important to carry out intelligent data analytics and testnet for the blockchain technologies in the world.
BlockTest exists for this reason: to provide a service where technology progression and adoption can easily be validated and at the same time connected with valuable investments. The hackathon will make it possible to connect the dots that will turn blockchain technology software applications into new realities for the industry.
HealthChainHack comes with a total prize pool that features access to the Google Startup Program, three months free of Z-park incubation, and a cash reward of more than two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
Blockchain Intersecting Pharma And Healthcare
We have slowly started to approach an era where blockchain will be able to meet the future of pharma and healthcare. The hackathon is an event that has managed to bring together amazing and renowned sponsors such as Oasis Labs, Google, NEO, and XtalPi. All these sponsors have committed close to three hundred thousand dollars to the event.
Blockchain groups have already started to gain ground in many college campuses around the world. However, the partnership between BlockTest and MIT is expected to take it to a whole new level. The parties involved are confident that the applications that will be developed in the course of this competition will act as a proof-of-concept for blockchain-based projects that can be implemented in the health sector.
- HealthChainHack has a single goal which is to hasten the translation of academic research into viable advancements in the pharmaceutical industry.
- The competition will assist in fast-tracking innovation by being able to bring together key healthcare players and coders from around the world.
Using the coding camp challenges to introduce changes to the healthcare industry makes a lot of sense. And this is why:
- To foster consensus in the industry
- To identify, as well as do away with risks and cost barriers
- To empower a new generation of researchers
- To stimulate collaboration between different disciplines
BlockTest has a philosophy that helps highlight its increased commitment to human empowerment and the progression of the society. The hackathon is its latest attempt to make things better for the human race.
