Call For Papers
BHTY 2023 Call for Manuscripts
BHTY is delighted to announce the new 2023 Call for Manuscripts, focused on blockchain for healthcare and data science. BHTY editors seek high quality and novel research, including failed experiments, to share with a global ecosystem. Visit the editorial board here.
BHTY invites scholars, graduate students, post docs, researchers, professors and market experts to develop and submit a manuscript addressing the opportunities, challenges, and real world case use in healthcare, which may be addressed by leveraging data science tools and techniques, and blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT).
Submitted manuscripts are expected to provide new conceptual, theoretical, and practical insights based on empirical data emerging from recent market or research activities. Use cases from demonstrably successful existing distributed ledger communities across a range of sectors are also welcome, as the learnings may be applicable in healthcare scenarios today or in the future.
Manuscripts may focus on, but are not limited to, the leverage of data, blockchain or digital ledger technology for healthcare, data science tools and techniques, and failed experiments including the following topics:
Data sharing to inform public health
Security infrastructure requirements of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) for healthcare
Quadruple Helix Innovation - encompassing science, policy, industry and society
Frameworks, methods and tools to develop and align blockchain/DLT-based projects for multiple parties with Peer-to-Peer (P2P) capabilities
Decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and varieties of consensus-oriented blockchain-based associations
Cybersecurity of distributed ledger communities, including permissioned, permissionless, and hybrid permissions, as well as exchange and non-exchange cases
Aligning multiple stakeholders and consortium members in a distributed ledger-based community with shared ecosystem scaling objectives
Specific use cases may include:
Patient health records
Human and social aspects
Health systems interoperability
Patient and device identity management
Legal and policy challenges
Digital tokens and incentives
Medical payments and billing
Data security, privacy, anonymity
Fraud detection and prevention
