Hyperledger Fabric-based Reliable Personal Health Information Sharing Model
Keywords:Hyperledger fabric, blockchain, health information, secure sharing
To provide optimized individual-oriented medical service, an open eco system is required so that personal health information could be safely recorded, managed, shared and viewed.
However, the current health information is being separately collected, stored, managed by various management institutions, so data linkage is not guaranteed. The data ownership for personal health information belongs to management entities not an individual and also health information is electronically recorded and managed, so it’s vulnerable to forgery and leakage like other electronic data.
This paper proposes a personal health information sharing platform applying the Hyperledger fabric. The proposed platform was designed based on blockchain to provide user-oriented health information management and access rights. Therefore, it is possible to create, manage and share reliable medical data.
