Rapid technological evolve brings great changes. As technology advances, it replaces the old way of working or doing things. With the electronic format of paperwork, the efforts of organizations are greatly reduced. But it gives rise to new problems i.e. how to store, access and update the records. As the data is available online, it may affect data’s privacy and security. A healthcare domain greatly advances with new innovations. The documents can be saved easily and accessed everywhere. A patient and system can effectively use this system to access his medical records, medical history and currently prescribe medicines. It gives the patient as well as his family to easily access the data, sharing of medical reports and use signed prescriptions at the pharmacy anytime anywhere. The data should be available but need to take care of data security and privacy. The patient must be the owner of data. Using blockchain technology, data will be available in a decentralized manner. Using digitized signature
the authentication of data can be verified. With the use of cryptography, data will be secure. While consensuses algorithm used for the reliability in a network. The system provides privacy using privacy agreement storage. Only with permission from the patient or authorized person the data can be used. The owner will be able to see, who is using his data and for what purpose. The system will be efficient to handle the data electronically as well as effective in confidentiality, authenticity and patient-centric.
