Healthcare service is increasingly creating the scope for Blockchain and machine learning (ML) applications to enter the biomedical and healthcare world. Today, Blcokchain,AI, ML, and deep learning are affecting every imaginable domain, and healthcare, too, doesn’t remain untouched. Through its cutting-edge applications, AI and ML are helping transform the healthcare industry for the better. Blockchain is a decentralization communication platform that has the potential to decentralize the way we store data and manage information. Blockchain technology has potential to reduce role of middleman, one of the most important regulatory actors in our society.

Blockchain technology enables a decentralized and distributed environment with no need for a central authority. Transactions are simultaneously secure and trustworthy due to the use of cryptographic principles. In recent years, blockchain technology has become very trendy and penetrated different domains, mostly due to the popularity of cryptocurrencies. One field where blockchain technology has tremendous potential is healthcare, due to the need for a more patient-centric approach to healthcare systems and to connect disparate systems and increase the accuracy of electronic healthcare records (EHRs).

In this special session, an analysis of state-of-the-art blockchain and ML research in the field of healthcare will be considered.
