The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) and the office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) are proud to present the 4th installment of the Interoperability in Action Webinar series, which will focus on the use of blockchain technology and its current and future implications in the healthcare field.
