Venrock released its 2019 Healthcare Prognosis report, which included insights on the progress of artificial intelligence and blockchain within the industry.
In 2019, blockchain in healthcare may not exist, Venrock found. The report showed that 75 percent of industry experts are struggling to find blockchain’s role in healthcare. Another 18 percent are finding use cases that benefit patients, and 7 percent are still unclear on what blockchain is.
While AI is slowly finding its place within healthcare, blockchain continues to struggle. Venrock suggests that although AI is maturing in healthcare at a traditional pace, blockchain may never matter within the space.
