Abstract

Nowadays, health data are fragmented and scattered across various systems and technologies. Complex support infrastructures, data system silos, and administrative bureaucracy have led to inefficiencies and inefficacies. This article aims to propose a blockchain platform to share big health data in real time between the authorized actors while ensuring a high level of health information protection. The proposed platform can offer a highly innovative approach to administering benefits and keeping all parties in sync. Implementing a blockchain for managing health data is a valuable support for diagnosing and monitoring the progress of the therapies of individual patients under treatment. In addition, it helps to reduce the time required for the exchange of information and keep the healthcare operations under control. Healthcare organizations and ecosystems will benefit from having a complete picture of a patient's health condition and reaching a global audience through the blockchain platform.
