Decentralized Electronic Health Records (DEHR): A Privacy-preserving Consortium Blockchain Model for Managing Electronic Health Records

Mahdi Ghadamyari, Saeed Samet

Abstract

Blockchain applications have proven the potential of this disruptive technology to achieve a disintermediated model for improving efficiency and reducing the additional costs. The de facto healthcare applications suffer from lack of interoperability, which is a result of using traditional centralized platforms that create private data silos with poor interoperability and a high maintenance cost. In this paper, we introduce a blockchain-based Decentralized Electronic Health Records (DEHR) model that enables healthcare providers to control their electronic health records and share them among other organizations involved in the system in a secure and consortium manner.
