Healthcare Technology

Blockchain has the potential to transform healthcare in India

Recently we came to know about an interesting incident at a corporate wellness camp. The health workers recording the vital statistics of the participants were making key mistakes in recording the observations. A good example was the height of one of the participants was recorded wrongly as 147 centimeters instead of 157. Immediately the participant became obese as per the record. Similarly, BP was recorded wrongly for another participant. Though both mistakes were eventually rectified, we were left wondering how many such errors happen in the healthcare ecosystem daily and what the consequences of these errors would have been.
