A Secure Transaction of Electronic Health Record in Healthcare System Using Block-Chain Technology
Main Article Content
This paper deals with the secure transaction of electronic health record, for storing information of the patient which consist of the medical reports. Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are entirely controlled by Hospitals instead of patients, which complicates seeking medical advices from different hospitals. In the existing system of storing details of the patients are very dependent on the servers of the organization. In the proposed all the information of the patient are stored in the blockchain by using the Meta mask and these details are stored in the block chain as a block of data. Each block consists of the data which is encrypted data. Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems record health-related information on an individual so that it can be consulted by clinicians or staff for patient care. The data is encrypted by the algorithm known as SHA-256 which is used to encrypt all the data of the patients into a single line 256-bit encrypted text which will be stored in the block at ethers can. These records for not only useful for the consultation but also for creation of historic family health information tree that keeps track of genetic health issues and diseases it can also be used for any health service with the authorization from both the patient and medical organization.
