  • Improving Medical Device Safety & Quality Using Blockchain
    Improving Medical Device Safety & Quality Using Blockchain
    David Houlding, Principal Healthcare Lead - Microsoft and Susan Ramonat, Chief Executive - Spiritus Recorded: Oct 25 2018 64 mins
    Spiritus and the British Blockchain Association investigate the practical application of blockchain using medical devices as a user case.

    Find out how medical device tracking using blockchain offers compelling value to healthcare, in supporting fast recalls, and improving the quality and safety of medical devices.

    Modern healthcare critically depends on medical devices. Whether in the patient in the form of implantables, on the patient in the form of wearables, or around the patient monitoring their environment, medical devices are already pervasive, and rapidly growing.

    Artificial intelligence and machine learning provide powerful new tools for real-time analysis of data from this Internet of Medical Things to empower healthcare professionals with new insights regarding patient health, and opportunities to improve patient care. However, for medical devices and analytics to deliver full benefits, the quality and safety of these devices is paramount.

    Faulty devices can not only lead to suboptimal results, but can directly compromise patient safety. Expediting recalls and tracking the health and maintenance of medical devices not only through the supply chain, but also through multiple lifecycles of use across different organisations, can greatly improve the quality and safety of medical devices and patient care.

    Join us in this webinar to hear how blockchain provides a powerful new tool to track medical devices, expedite recalls, and improve quality.

    Key take-aways:
    •Medical devices in, on, and around patients, and the critical importance of safety and quality
    •Blockchain as a tool to track and trace medical devices to expedite recalls and improve quality
    •Key challenges and solutions for using blockchain to improve medical device quality and safety
    •Evolution of blockchain for medical devices: status, next steps, and future projections

    4. How to conduct blockchain research - from asking the right questions to publishing the research work
    5. How should INVESTORS do Due Diligence before investing in a blockchain start up
    6. Why do we need an Evidence Based Approach to establish facts
    7. What is the role of peer review in Blockchain research and how does a peer review process works
    8. How to write the best White Paper

  • Anarchy, Blockchain and Utopia: A Vision of a Future Society
    Anarchy, Blockchain and Utopia: A Vision of a Future Society
    Dr Brendan Markey-Towler, Researcher, University of Queensland Recorded: May 9 2018 46 mins
    On the face of it a prosaic bookkeeping technology, Blockchain belies the capability it has to radically transform our societies by making the formulation, promulgation and curation of institutions and public records possible without a decentralised authority.

    In this webinar we discuss how this makes “cryptosecession” and an anarchic society possible. We use evolutionary, institutional and psychological economics to study the evolution of such a society and what makes a Blockchain “fit” to be selected and retained as a technology for organising and recording socioeconomic interaction. From this we obtain a vision of the future: an evolving, diverse, rich and at least partly anarchic society organised by Blockchains.
