A Framework for Secure Storage and Sharing of Electronic Health Records using Blockchain Technology
Ramrao Adik Institute Of Technology, Nerul, Navi Mumbai, India
Public Healthcare issues have been the main focus of any governing body for the last decade. Each day a large amount of Healthcare data is generated by individual and Medical Organizations. This information is considered highly sensitive and private, which needed to be securely stored and protected against unauthorized access. In a traditional system, all the data is stored in a centralized system which comes with lots of drawbacks. This where blockchain technology comes in because of its Peer-To-Peer nature and Security. Several studies highlight the importance of blockchain and how it can be implemented in Electronic Medical Record(EMR) systems which face problems regarding privacy,security,decentralization and confidentiality.In this paper, We explain how blockchain technology may be utilised to improve EMR systems and how it could be a solution to these problems. We offer a framework for implementing blockchain technology in the healthcare industry for EMR.The aim of our proposed framework is first to implement blockchain technology for EHR and secondly to provide secure storage of electronic records by defining granular access rules for the users of the proposed framework. Moreover,this framework provides the EHR system with the benefits of a blockchain-based solution that is scalable, secure, and integrated.
