The Illinois Blockchain Initiative has joined forces with Hashed Health, a blockchain company focused on healthcare innovation. Using distributed ledger technology, the partners seek to improve medical licensure in Illinois.
On August 8, 2017, the Illinois Blockchain Initiative announced that it has partnered with Hashed Health. The pair will collaborate on methods by which to enhance the “efficiency and accuracy of the medical credentialing process in Illinois” using a blockchain-based registry.
“In the short-term we anticipate this pilot will show how distributed ledger technology can help reduce the complexity of interstate licensing processes in Illinois,” noted Bryan Schneider, secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR).
