    • Health quality data scoring - How do we validate data when its streaming in
    • Clinical IOT - validating data coming out of them and then writing them into a blockchain so that the patient has access
  • Jeremy - One of the use cases we are looking at is streaming data on to the Blockchain from wareables
  • Maria - Private Blockchains for clinical trials some are in pilot none are ready to discuss the challenges

Next Meeting
