Abstract: Current approaches to collecting and verifying patient consent for data sharing are inadequate for the digital age and a roadblock to full interoperability. We will explore digital methods to manage patient consent, including a blockchain-based solution. We will analyze how the implementation of digital consent management could reduce current administrative burdens and discuss the clinical impacts of patient-centered interoperability.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: After attending the poster presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Critique existing consent management infrastructure and it’s potential shortcomings
- Compare digital alternatives to existing consent management infrastructure
- Recognize potential impacts of implementing digital consent management alternatives
