Blockchain Technology in e-Healthcare Management

Blockchain Technology in e-Healthcare Management

Edited by Suyel Namasudra, Victor Hugo C. de Albuquerque

The healthcare arena has seen a shift in recent years with more healthcare provisions being delivered, as well as managed via electronic means. Healthcare providers can now provide patients with diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, or a prescription without even sharing the same physical space. Nowadays, patients' healthcare data is stored and accessed electronically, and the security requirements of healthcare data are continuously increasing due to the presence of malicious users and hackers. As blockchain technology supports resistance to modification of data, it could be one of the best solutions to achieving traceability of healthcare data, and the security of e-Healthcare systems and services can be improved using blockchain technology.

Introducing the fundamentals of blockchain technology and discussing its applications in the e-Healthcare sphere, this edited book highlights recent research and development of blockchain technology, specifically in healthcare environments, such as e-healthcare records and data security, health insurance management, fraud detection, pharmaceutical supply chain management, and many more. Including a case study on managing e-healthcare data, this edited book also explores the challenges and future directions of using blockchain technology in delivering and managing e-healthcare provisions.

Written by a range of international experts, this edited book will be of interest to researchers and academics in information security, data scientists, and healthcare professionals and administrators with responsibility for e-healthcare records.
