Blockchain, Encryption, IoT, Health, Security


A blockchain network offers flexible and trustworthy solutions for the storage of sensitive data like patient’s medical records. Nowadays IoT devices are used to connect and transmit sensed information between object and human using internet. IoT has major applications in almost all the sectors like smart transportation, cities, and healthcare etc. In healthcare sector a doctor can monitor the patient parameters remotely in case of any emergency. The wearable IoT device is continuously sense the patient parameters and export the data over cloud or any storage unit. The accurate previous data and real time sensed data must be shared with doctor immediately during an emergency. In this paper the aim is to improves the functionality of healthcare system by integrating IoT system with blockchain network which is used to store all the sensed data by IoT devices.
