Blockchain in healthcare, a talk between Davide Casaleggio and Massimo Tortorella

22.Nov.2018 | Insights

Consulcesi Tech was among the main characters of the conference organised by Casaleggio Associati entitled “B2B: il futuro digitale del business tra aziende”. At the centre of the debate among some of the main economic and business corporations, both at the Italian and global level (like Poste Italiane and IBM), the blockchain and the ways it will revolutionise the activities of enterprises and some sectors, like the healthcare one.

Organ donation, medical certification, Continuining Medical Training of healthcare professionals: the advantanges that the blockchain can offer to healthcare, a sector in which Consulcesi Group is leader in Europe, are numerous. And they are at the centre of the talk between Davide Casaleggio, President of Casaleggio Associati, and Massimo Tortorella, President of Consulcesi tech, at the end of the conference.

«When there is the need of not changing the data while always ensuring it visibility and transparency, it is possible to use the blockchain – explained Casaleggio -. In Estonia, for example, the organ donor register is blockchain-based. And the same technology might be used for medical certification, so that it is easily possible to know whether a patient can do specific physical activities».

«The same – said Casaleggio – is true for the certification of training credits in healthcare and in any other sector: if many companies deal with education, they will certify whether that person attended the course. For these reasons, the blockchain can be used in this framework too».

Talking about education, it is impossible not to face the need of training people able to develop the potentials of the blockchain. This is one of the purposes that Consulcesi Tech wants to reach: together with the Link Campus University, it is organizing an MBA in “Blockchain and Economics of Cryptocurrencies” that will offer comprehensive education to those who want to know better this new and pervasive technology that, as Casaleggio remembered, «within 2027 will have an impact on 10% of the global GDP».
