On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking with John Bass, the Founder and CEO of Hashed Health. Hashed Health is a Nashville based healthcare technology company focused on accelerating Blockchain and distributed ledger technology in healthcare. John and his team are coming up with next generation ideas to help break down those walls between care and commerce and rebuild the system in a way that is better for healthcare and better for patients.
When asked about the impetus for his interest, he said, "A central theme in all the businesses I've been involved with in my professional career has been that of helping bring people together around opportunities to share infrastructure, data and other ways to improve patient care outcomes while mitigating cost of all kinds. Rather than building a healthIT platform atop Microsoft SQL, technologists can consider using Blockchain which has real advantages in creating distributed databases of trusted logs of transactions related to any asset or value, and which can be audited, but which "can't be changed or broken or stolen."
WHAT IS HASHED HEALTH?
Hashed Health is leading a consortium of healthcare companies focused on accelerating meaningful innovation using Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. To empower its consortium members, Hashed Health provides value-added services such as product development, product management, regulatory guidance, and technology support services for blockchain solutions and blockchain networks.
Based in Nashville, TN, Hashed Health’s healthcare experts focus on making sure the business problem drives the appropriate technical solution. In the words of Hashed Health: "We help members launch new industry level solutions more effectively and at lower cost. We also provide exposure to existing networks that are actively exploring, piloting, or using existing solutions."
