Blockchain for Clinical Trials
From a global perspective, the application of blockchain technologies in the context of clinical research is broad and promising.
Tracking the complex data flow with numerous diverse stakeholders, and documenting it in real-time through a timestamping workflow, is a key step towards proving data consistency and inviolability, and will hence improve clinical trial methodology. The Blockchain for Clinical Trials Insights Program is a multi-phase eye-opening learning program that will introduce and evaluate blockchain applications for clinical trials while examining the impact of convergence of emerging technologies such as IoT and AI and blockchain for optimizing the process.
