Cleveland, Ohio is working hard to lead the way in becoming a cryptocurrency and blockchain friendly city. There is a downtown technology hub in the works as well as a new think tank devoted to blockchain technology research and adoption. Many of the region’s universities, such as Baldwin Wallace, are already incorporating blockchain into curriculums. Additionally, Ohio just became the first state in the nation to accept cryptocurrency for business tax payments.

Patientory had the pleasure of experiencing Cleveland’s technological drive at the inaugural Blockland Solutions: Blockchain for Business & Government, a conference at the start of December. Both the presentation and the healthcare panel featuring CEO Chrissa McFarlane went very well, and we were highlighted as a premier blockchain company. We also discovered opportunities to build case studies with healthcare organizations for enterprise-level adoption of blockchain.
