Abstract
Accurate and complete patient data is important and valuable to both patients and referrals. Due to this policy, the patient's medical records cannot be shared between different medical facilities or hospitals, and the patient must be re-diagnosed at another facility. Patients are also experiencing delays in treatment and appointments due to the high utilization of high-end government hospitals. Due to limited knowledge of the medical history, doctors cannot easily diagnose the patient. The auction of patient medical records is another risk for these institutions. Therefore, secure storage that facilitates access to medical data and privacy protection is an important issue. A decentralized and encrypted network of medical records using blockchain can help solve these problems. With this distributed storage, patients can make seamless appointments and get permission to share medical records with different hospitals, without the risk of data theft. Doctors can also view the medical history of patient and upload treatment and patient’s profiles. Your doctor may help others to make a diagnosis in the future. Therefore, it has been found that creating a decentralized, encrypted network for storing medical records improves the speed and quality of patient care.
