The list of IBM’s partners includes an insurance company Health Care Service Corporation; PNC Bank; Aetna, the subsidiary of a pharmaceutical giant CVS; the provider of health plans Anthem.
Besides other things, the members of the collaboration are going to explore the usage of blockchain in storing personal data on the patients, filing health claims, making transactions quicker and safer.
