Although blockchain has not become mainstream, the technology is being used within various sectors, including healthcare.

From giving patients more access to their information and providing healthcare organizations with more security, blockchain has a potential to dominate healthcare.

Below are five ways the technology is already being used in healthcare, according to TechZone360.

  1. To provide a clear and evident data exchange of patient information between physicians.
  2. As a secure data storage to ensure patient privacy.
  3. To help with hindering the high amounts of data breaches within the medical field.
  4. To secure the tracking of records without fear of alterations or changes.

Health System Boards Lack Sufficient Oversight Over Technology, Black Book Survey Reveals

TAMPA, Fla., July 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — In a Q2 2019 poll, Black Book sought to identify the technology presence in the boardroom of hospital and …

TAMPA, Fla., July 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — In a Q2 2019 poll, Black Book sought to identify the technology presence in the boardroom of hospital and health systems to discover that over two-thirds of those surveyed had little to no significant tech expertise on their board of directors. Among currently serving board members, 4% have direct technology experience relevant to the healthcare industry.

According to the C-Suite executives polled, 91% of hospital boards rely entirely on consultants for IT strategy and advisement rather than the healthcare tech expertise of trustees. “The advisors on which health system boards depend are historically inclined to give very broad advice on vendor selections and the competitive landscape, which may not motivate digital transformation, but will keep the organization from lagging behind,” said Doug Brown, Founder of Black Book Research.

A Black Book survey recently asked 494 C-Suite hospital executives, “As a collective governance group, how tech-savvy is your organization’s board on the following Issues?”

Q2 2019 – C Suite Executives

Highly Knowledgeable

Somewhat Knowledgeable

No Knowledge

Don’t Know/ Not Sure

Enterprise IT Functionality





Healthcare IT Vendors





Cybersecurity Trends





Healthcare Cyber Risks





IT ROI & Bottom Line Impact





IT Lifecycle Cost Studies





IT Optimization over New Purchases





Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning





Of the 308 board members surveyed separately, Black Book found 79% feel they receive too little data and or feedback on tech challenges facing the health system. Only 5% of these board members polled have a dedicated technology committee. Trustees and board members in both for-profit and not-for-profit health systems were polled, “As a collective governance group, how prepared is your organization’s board on the following Issues?”

Q2 2019 – Board Members

Very Prepared to Handle

Somewhat or Moderately Prepared to Handle

Not Prepared to Handle

Not Sure

Large Scale Data Breach or Hack





Complete Failure of HIT/EHR System





Switching/Replacing EHR with New Vendor





High costs & overruns impacting financial stability





Implementation Delays impacting physicians/community





80% of CFOs and senior finance leaders disclosed their belief that board members were not impartial in recent vendor selection processes and approved spending that was influenced mainly by either another board member, corporate management and/or the vendor sales executives. Board members being unaware or uninformed of health system technology issues and concerns also increases large, enterprise-wide spends for software and services not well understood, according to 92% of chief financial officers participating in the polls.

“Overspending on IT is just as risky as being overly frugal, so health system boards must ensure they are not encouraging leadership to buy more than is needed or to just get by or layer older technology to save money,” said Brown.

Regarding disruptive technologies to the current health system mission, 76% of executives state their hospital board could not identify new technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning or patient privacy monitoring to understand as a group the risk-benefit equation of their IT approvals and spending choices.

“Up until governmental EHR incentives, the alignment of technology with patient care, quality and financial success meant that IT prowess was needed only at the operational level, but health systems in 2019 are implementing technology supports external-facing functions like marketing, analytics, intelligence, and interoperability, as well as supporting board affairs including strategy, vision, strategic and accountability.”

“Health systems boardrooms are definitely becoming smarter about digital technology but it is a slow work in progress,” said Brown.
