One of the companies to respond most quickly to the COVID-19 crisis was IBM, whose blockchain division quickly developed and launched Rapid Supplier Connect, a platform for tracking trusted healthcare suppliers using blockchain technology. In this one-time-only event, you’ll hear from Mark Treshock, IBM’s Blockchain Solutions Leader for Healthcare and Life Sciences, who will walk us through a video demo of IBM’s platform, already trusted by dozens of governments, hospitals, and companies to get critical equipment where it’s needed. We’ll explain why getting our health care supply chain in order is so essential, with a demonstration of how blockchain is helping. This event is required viewing for anyone in healthcare, government, or business who’s looking to real-world Coronavirus solutions.
