Blockchain is a series of transactions recorded in blocks and secured cryptographically. It is immutable, decentralized, and transparent and has proved to be beneficial across all domains to protect and store data. Maintaining privacy, integrity, and security, blockchain is particularly valuable to the healthcare industry. of healthcare data. Blockchain in Digital Healthcare provides a panoramic review of prospects of blockchain technology in the healthcare domain. Users can record transactions in blocks in an immutable distributed ledger that cannot be changed once recorded and/or published. Blockchain is also decentralized, which eliminates dependency on a trusted third party to facilitate transactions, enabling clients and other users of the blockchain to take ownership of the data they push on the network. Blockchain also makes transactions more secure as clients have their own copies. Features: Provides systematic and comprehensive understanding of the block chain technology and the potential in healthcare Describes how security and privacy concerns of healthcare data can be addressed using Blockchain Technology Discusses the concept of smart contracts for performing advanced level scripting to create a blockchain network to provide a platform for the development of decentralized applications Includes a chapter on role of blockchain based insurance application using Ethereum/Hyperledger Presents cases of blockchain use for various aspects of drug manufacturing and the pharma supply chain This book serves as a reference book for IT professionals, scientific investigators and researchers who need to analyze the prospects of blockchain technology in healthcare.

Distributed Linear Programming Models in a Smart Grid Excerpt :

This book showcases the strengths of Linear Programming models for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), such as the Smart Grids. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) consist of computational components interconnected by computer networks that monitor and control switched physical entities interconnected by physical infrastructures. A fundamental challenge in the design and analysis of CPS is the lack of understanding in formulating constraints for complex networks. We address this challenge by employing collection of Linear programming solvers that models the constraints of sub-systems and micro grids in a distributed fashion. The book can be treated as a useful resource to adaptively schedule resource transfers between nodes in a smart power grid. In addition, the feasibility conditions and constraints outlined in the book will enable in reaching optimal values that can help maintain the stability of both the computer network and the physical systems. It details the collection of optimization methods that are reliable for electric-utilities to use for resource scheduling, and optimizing their existing systems or sub-systems. The authors answer to key questions on ways to optimally allocate resources during outages, and contingency cases (e.g., line failures, and/or circuit breaker failures), how to design de-centralized methods for carrying out tasks using decomposition models; and how to quantify un-certainty and make decisions in the event of grid failures.
