Secure Healthcare System using Blockchain Technology

HtweHtwePyone, KhinThan Mya

Abstract— Due to the popularity of crypto currencies, blockchain technology has gotten valuable for various areas. In the healthcare domain, blockchain became a key component that can drive information streams as significant and adaptable enough to enable continuous secure human services framework. So, this system is proposed as the secure healthcare system by using blockchain technology. To reduce the redundancy from each block of health data, this system proposes the modified mutual information (MMI) method as the contribution. MMI method identifies the quality of relationships between features of various natures without dispersion law limitation. And then, this system uses MD-5 (message-digest-5) hash algorithm for the hash value. Each block with hash value is transmitted through the blockchain. So, this system allows the healthcare providers to easily and securely share health data.
