Mayo Clinic Gives Blockchain Another Try; Will It EVER Catch On In The Healthcare Sector?

Blockchain, a decentralized, immutable ledger most often associated with cryptocurrency, has great potential within the healthcare industry – potential to address privacy and data-security concerns. Potential to ward off cyberattacks. Potential, even, to make the payment process more efficient.

Blockchain can also aid in matters such as medication adherence and blockchain management, but widespread adoption has yet to take place. As Kali Dugampudi, chief technology officer at the healthcare payments company Zelis, told Healthcare IT News in a July 2022 interview, the sector has been “notoriously slow to adopt new technology,” meaning that we are “likely still years away from the healthcare industry widely adopting blockchain technology.”

Straddling the Gap Between Institutional and At-Home Care for Seniors

From our Chairman Joel Landau this month in Senior Lifestyle Magazine, he writes,

One of the most significant trends in healthcare in recent years has been the expansion of personalized medicine and concierge services. This is especially true for older Americans, who, impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, have taken advantage of remote care—telemedicine, remote chronic condition monitoring, etc.—and are becoming more familiar with using technology at home.

While many seniors are comfortable entering skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), more and more prefer to remain in their homes as long as possible…”

The Persistent Problem of Falls Among Seniors: What Can Be Done About It?

From our COO Melissa Powell this month in Senior Lifestyle Magazine, she writes,

The problem of falling among seniors cannot be overstated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, older Americans suffer from 36 million falls each year, resulting in 32,000 deaths. That makes falls the leading cause of accidental death among seniors in the U.S.

Moreover, 20 percent of falls lead to injuries among those ages 65 and over, and some 3 million older adults require an emergency-room visit as a result of an injury suffered in a fall.
