About Game Chainger:
Our Vantage Point
Those of us in healthcare have devoted time, energy, and resources pursuing education to support our career aspirations and poured sweat equity into our industry. As patients as well as employees of providers or payors, we have seen first-hand the inefficiencies in the healthcare industry we call home to our careers.
We have witnessed complications artificially infused by various stakeholders into this industry making healthcare one of the most complicated sectors of our economy. Many would say there are more stakeholders in healthcare than in any other industry and every one of those stakeholders is understandably passionate and critical of the two focal points the whole healthcare industry is focused… enabling us to experience the best possible health while delivering the highest quality of care. It is truly baffling that with so many stakeholders caring as much as they do about health care we could have so many complications, excuses, games, and distractions getting in our way of making this the best performing industry in the economy.
We could leave our workplaces every day complaining and moaning about the problems we face, the lessons we've learned, or the scars we've accumulated. Or we could put the passion that led us into this industry, the observations we have collected along our careers, and the energy of our frustration to more productive use exploring new paradigms and solutions to address as many of the root cause issues of our industry's challenges.
We firmly believe that Blockchain/Distributed Ledger and Artificial Intelligence technologies are significant forces being applied at intersections in industries where transactions are inefficient and trust has been broken among stakeholders. It's not a question of IF Blockchain and AI will disrupt countless aspects of healthcare it's just a matter of WHEN.
Game Chainger was created with the contexts outlined above in mind. Our hope is to examine the inventory of pain points, wish lists, and proof of concepts we've gathered applying these to the complex world of Blockchain and AI. There are several parties investing significant effort to these two technology concepts, but these are each equally complex and abstract. There is a critical need to spread awareness of our industry's current challenges and most especially the potential these two technologies offer. The daunting task of adopting Blockchain and AI across an enormous cohort of patients, providers, and payors is required to make these technologies reach widespread adoption. The learning curve is steep and the majority of the industry isn't even aware of these technologies. We feel called to provide a clear set of insightful resources, a forum to discuss these innovations, our own proof of concepts, and a mechanism to share what is transpiring in this arena.
We strive to help patients, providers, and payors learn quickly about Blockchain and AI technologies. Our primary goal is helping these critical stakeholders achieve the Blockchain/AI "aha! moment" where one moves from learning how the technology works and switches to imagining how the technology can begin to solve real problems. We will work with all who are interested to see the healthcare industry through a different paradigm. Together we will thoughtfully explore options that will make the industry a more efficient and effective place to receive care, conduct business, and reach our expectations for how the industry should REALLY work.
We hope you participate with us here at Game Chainger as we appreciate what brought us into healthcare, reflect on where areas of opportunity exist and find ways to accelerate our industry towards long overdue efficiency and longstanding improvement.
We Need Change
Stakeholders in healthcare will quickly agree that a change is long overdue. The game between providers & payors and between payors & patients isn't working for anyone.
Efforts are underway to study the inefficiencies, financial delays, and trust breakdowns in healthcare and apply Distributed Ledger (Blockchain) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to change this game bringing economic progress, financial viability, and improved health to all involved.
Healthcare patients, providers & payors built this site for healthcare patients, providers & payors that are seeking a game changer for their current challenges. Blockchain & AI could be just what we need. This site is intended to help us move through the Blockchain & AI learning curves quickly to change the game for the better.
