Abstract

In the rapidly evolving landscape of health care, the security and management of patient data emerge as paramount concerns. Traditional centralized systems have shown vulnerabilities, leading to breaches and unauthorized access. This paper delves into the transformative potential of blockchain technology as a solution to these challenges. Blockchain, primarily recognized for its role in cryptocurrency, offers features such as decentralization, immutability, and transparency, making it a promising candidate for secure health care data management. Through an exploration of its fundamental principles and a comparative analysis of two case studies, the practical implementations and outcomes of blockchain in health care settings are highlighted. The findings suggest that while blockchain presents significant advantages, its integration into health care is accompanied by certain limitations and ethical considerations. As the health care industry stands on the cusp of a potential shift in data management, this paper provides insights, recommendations, and a vision for the future, emphasizing the promise and implications of blockchain technology.
