    In this report, the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) has written down lessons learned on how blockchain technology can have an impact on the healthcare domain. By looking at two use-cases, the hospital challenged several teams, participating in an open innovation program and blockchain hackathon, to find a solution that showed the added value of the technology for patient care and scientific research. Besides this practical perspective, the report also considers literature discussing the current state of blockchain technology in regard to developments in the healthcare domain (touching on patient empowerment, data management, regulations, and interoperability between healthcare systems).
