Blockchain technology has even infiltrated the healthcare industry. A Swiss-based global nonprofit healthcare member organization called Patientory Stiftung. The organization was founded for adopters of PTOY blockchain. The blockchain stores and manages health information in real time and the information can be accessed in such a manner as well.
The announcement concerning the launch of the blockchain technology is scheduled on May 31, 2017 at the Inaugural Blockchain in Healthcare Summit – North America. It is expected that there will be discussions concerning the open-source quality of the blockchain and its ability to enable companies and startups to ingrate the blockchain into current infrastructures.
We'll be hosting our Inaugural Summit on May 31, 2018 in Atlanta, GA! Join us and hear from the amazing speakers who will be discussing blockchain and healthcare. https://t.co/rB7JV1TcBK $PTOY #blockchain #healthcare #healthcaresummit #PTOYSummit18 pic.twitter.com/HLXZT0Z6v2

Interestingly enough, HealthNet source code will be available before the summit for developers at a hackathon. The purpose of this is to inspire individuals to improve the software and to attempt to integrate it into their proprietary applications. According to Mohsen Safaei, the managing director of Patientory Stiftung,
“The healthcare industry is embarking on an exciting journey as it looks to technology, and more specifically, a blockchain, to solve many data challenges for physicians and patients alike.” Further, the network “will serve as a catalyst to bring more companies onboard.”
Those who are interested in learning more about the summit and the technology can do so through the website. The registration process is still open and ticket prices range from $25 to $250. There are also sponsorship packages available for those who are interested.
