Workshop “Decentral Databases for Logistics in the Medical and Health Care Industry” with Tec4med on December 5, 2019, in Frankfurt

What is the content of the workshop?

Currently, the data of the logistics chain is managed centrally by the main contractor. However, logistics consists of many smaller units that interact with each other and forward goods and data. This is currently done partly via the central database of the main contractor with many media discontinuities as a source of errors. Here we think a decentralized solution could minimize errors and enable new use cases.
