TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE 2 Technology in Healthcare The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act made it mandatory for all public and private healthcare providers to get on the electronic medical records (EMR) platform by the year 2014. Blockchain technology may be the solution to the problem of interoperability of the different information technology (IT) systems within the healthcare system. The technology helps in the sharing of health data, keeping track of heath information and conveniently involving people on health related matters. Blockchain technology uses peer-to-peer (P2P) ledger technology, meaning that it takes a devolved methodology to interactions within the network participants (Peters, et al, 2018). The design behind blockchain has an in-built fault tolerance and disaster recovery, and other technology such as cryptography which are used and accepted in the industry. This means the exchange of information is secure and the system accepted within the industry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
