  2. Blockchain is approaching the “zenith” of the hype cycle
     
    “Is it time for agencies to join the blockchain conversation?”
    Tim Gilday for Federal News Radio, November 22, 2017

    “Originally developed for Bitcoin transactions, blockchain technology has rapidly broadened its sphere of applicability because it can be autonomous, permanent, highly secure, cryptographically auditable, open and capable of automating contractual agreements (‘smart contracts’) between parties in a network. We can expect artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud and other technologies layered into most comprehensive solutions.”
     
    Gilday adds: “Despite Gartner’s caution of an impending zenith in its  hype cycle for emerging technologies, the promise of blockchain is very real — but it does require a solid grasp of the technology fundamentals combined with innovative and big-picture thinking.”
     
    As far as I can tell, the technology is not applicable to dentistry. Nevertheless, do you remember Newt Gingrich’s giddy hype of EHRs? The nation fell for it.

    In healthcare, hype has arrived
