Blockchain has evolved over time into a very powerful tool allowing assets to be tracked and controlled across the multiple transactions necessary to move product from supplier to end user. In particular, the healthcare sector has faced challenges implementing this technology. While leaders carefully work to integrate blockchain platforms with existing systems and avoid redundancies, careful consideration must also be taken to satisfy current and future regulatory requirements that track and trace medical orders to help fight the growing opportunity for counterfeiting activities.
