Blockchain in healthcare provides an extra layer of security for cloud-storage as it accurately monitors track changes and makes it difficult for anyone to access data or modify it secretly
Fremont, CA: Blockchain technology is a database shared across a secure network of users. Blockchain in healthcare is a new concept, but it could positively influence the future quality of data.
Here are three beneficial impacts of blockchain in healthcare:
Blockchain in healthcare provides patients additional access and management of their personal health information. This technology is traceable, reducing the risk of deleted data and false claims of medication or health history. With blockchain, patients can access their data, update it, and safely access the history of their medical information. They can also take control of their medical records by removing a medical provider’s centralized authority over their data. Blockchain streamlines how inaccurate information is recognized and updated, and influences a patient’s ownership of their records, outcomes, security, and engagement.
Efficiency and Security
Blockchain manages access in Electronic Health Records with cloud-based storage. Most providers adopt cloud storage to access patient data from different locations or devices with a username and password. It keeps data secure from computer crashes or information lost. Blockchain in healthcare provides an extra layer of security for cloud-storage as it precisely monitors track changes and makes it difficult for anyone to secretly access data or modify it.
Blockchain in healthcare provides a solution for interoperability that streamlines data sharing on approved platforms and optimizes the accuracy of the data with each user. Modifications are monitored and approved by each user so that providers who are authorized to view the data can see an extensive medical history and make better clinical decisions.
