The team at Hashed Health has secured another partner as it seeks to develop and build out use cases for blockchain in health care.

Two-year-old Hashed is teaming up with Global Healthcare Exchange, a tech and data automation company, on projects aimed at innovating the health care supply chain.

“Starting in the late ’90s, my work in supply chain has focused on proving that trading partners in health care can mutually benefit by working together in new ways,” said John Bass, founder and CEO at Hashed Health. “This partnership with GHX begins a new chapter in our quest to create shared value in the healthcare supply chain.”
