One of the major driving factors of the blockchain technology in healthcare market is the increasing number of regulations for safeguarding consumer data. Governments across the world are implementing stringent regulations to protect consumer information due to the growing incidents of data breach and theft. For instance, a new European Union data protection rule, the “General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”, came into effect in May 2018. The GDPR aims to protect EU citizens from data and privacy breaches, and because of the existence of such regulations, companies across the world have to invest in data security.

The growing investments and funding in the technology is another key factor due to which the blockchain in healthcare market is growing. The technology is attracting major funding and investments from both public and private organizations, owing to its enormous scope and possibilities in the field of medicine. For instance, Akiri, a blockchain health startup, received $10.0 million investment from Health2047, a company funded by the American Medical Association, in January 2018. This grant was expected to be used for the creation of a blockchain-based platform for health data.
