"Change Healthcare Deploys Blockchain Network On Amazon Web Services" - Meg Bryant
Change Healthcare has announced the availability of its blockchain-powered Intelligent Healthcare Network on Amazon Web Services. The network, coupled with a cloud-based offering, will let hospitals and insurers track the status of claims from submission to payment in real time. The collaboration highlights industry enthusiasm around blockchain. "It is extremely early in the development cycle of this technology,” said Noah Zimmerman, MD, director of Mount Sinai’s newly-launched Center for Biomedical Blockchain Research. "We're really building the infrastructure and plumbing right now." That makes Change's sync-up with a powerhouse like AWS all the more worth watching.
