Accenture has joined healthcare innovation firm Hashed Health's blockchain consortium.

Tennessee-based Hashed Health, a consortium leveraging blockchain and distributed ledger technologies for the US healthcare system, has partnerered with public and private sector clients to collaboratively develop solutions and networks that solve health delivery challenges.

As a consortium member, Accenture will focus its efforts on developing industry use cases for blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and identify opportunities where organizations can implement solutions at scale.

Brian Kalis, managing director of digital health at Accenture, said: "While adoption grows, healthcare organizations must continue advancing the application of blockchain technologies to achieve and sustain meaningful progress.

"We believe that Hashed Health’s workgroup-centered model will allow companies to collaboratively tackle existing problems in healthcare while establishing best practices."

Hashed Health CEO John Bass, commented: "Accenture adds a broad range of expertise to the Consortium workgroup and will help clients improve performance and create sustainable value. Their global viewpoint and experience with large scale deployments brings a unique perspective to our decentralization initiatives. In turn, Accenture will benefit from the consortium’s efforts to advance market intelligence and industry best practices."
