Blockchain is coming to healthcare, and here are some of the jobs that might emerge

Open blockchain jobs are on the rise. In fact, according to a Glassdoor report, the number of unique jobs related to blockchain rose from 446 in August 2017 to 1,775 for the same month this year. That’s an eye-popping 300 percent.

Not bad for a new technology. And blockchain in healthcare? It could be just around the horizon.


When blockchain does become widespread in the healthcare industry, it will likely bring with it some high-paying jobs, since blockchain jobs trend to pay well above the U.S. median salary. The median in blockchain is now at $84,884, according to Glassdoor, and can reach as high as $233,667.

Slightly more than half of those jobs will be in technical and engineering roles. Below are a few that are related to the role of healthcare finance.


Product manager (76 job openings, 4 percent of the total)

Risk analyst (45 job openings, 3 percent of the total)

Marketing manager (30 job openings, 2 percent of the total)

Community manager (26 job openings, 1 percent of the total)

Product designer (23 job openings, 1 percent of the total)

Strategy manager (14 job openings, 1 percent of the total)


Blockchain holds big potential for overcoming issues of trust and ironing out technology wrinkles when it comes to sharing clinical and financial data in healthcare. And evidence is emerging that practical uses of blockchain are closer than previously thought.
