04 What I learnt

Future of Health Care

Be aware of the limitations of different health care systems and laws across different states/nations.

Start to think how telemedicine would be applied to the future healthcare industry

Understanding Blockchain System

Understand the concept of a block chain that many own segmented information.

Used Blockchain as a means of achieving full privacy which is a big challenge in the medical industry.

Artificial Intelligent's possibility

Understand the roles and functions that AI can perform.

Mainly, natural language communication frees communication with patients who lack medical expertise.
