1. Introduction

The assignment focuses on the study of blockchain technology used in healthcare industries. It would highlight the changes that the technology would provide to healthcare industries including the improvements of the health care systems, increasing the privacy, interoperability, and security of the medical data of the patients. The study focuses on the improvements in recording data electronically and their significant objectives. The study examines the usage of blockchain in the healthcare sector and its influence on the care services to the care users.

Along with its benefits of using blockchain technology, some major risks need to be detected earlier to overcome these risks safely. Blockchain technology plays a vital role in healthcare industries, as securing information is mostly required in these types of industries. The project aims the methods skillfully used by the organizations to provide the approach of using electronic records (Medium, 2018). This technology provides wide implications for the stakeholders in the healthcare industries. Health care industries include hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and other health care institutions which are industry lowing the blockchain technologies. While using this technology these industries need to focus on the challenges and to provide a backup plan of defensive strategies to protect the information. Hence, the study will reflect the overall aspects of using blockchain technology in healthcare organizations. 

1.1 Background

With an increase in technologies almost every industry including healthcare, introduces innovative technology to enhance their services. The major aspect of using blockchain technology in healthcare helps in reduction in the cost of the medicines. It is required for recording documents securely to solve the problem of wasting money and time (Forbes, 2019). Deploying the blockchain would highlight the occurrence of a change in the healthcare industries.

With the help of this technology, the patients are provided with benefits on their medicine by reducing the cost or even providing free medicines. The companies related to pharmaceuticals are beneficial in billing and accounting of different orders as well as helps them to provide information about their inventory stocks (Deloitte, 2019). A major benefit in terms of medical frauds can also be seen that are ameliorating the service effectiveness of healthcare organizations.

Although technology is providing help to millions of people and industries that does not mean it cannot provide risks to the organizations. It has become the most popularized technology in recent years. There can be a risk of documentary damages due to certain electrical faults or some external factors that would affect the privacy of these documents (Siyal et al. 2019). It has totally changed the methods of working in the healthcare organizations by providing security as well as privacy to those documents, which can be misused illegally.

Comparing the recent use of technologies, blockchain technology has become the most significant technology in healthcare industries. It helps the doctors as well as the whole organizations to provide data as well as information of a specific patient effectively with less consumption of time (Medium, 2018). The overall study focuses on the key benefits of using blockchain technology in healthcare organizations. According to the HIE surveys it was found that the blocking of the information has been popularized which is still ineffective in recent years. For curbing the problem of information, blocking there is an immediate need for a collaborative relationship to be maintained within these organizations along with powerful financial incentives and by increasing the transparency of the actions done by the staffs.

1.1.1 Medium of Propagation

  • Exploitation of data share ability, security, and interoperability
  • Hindrances occurring in multi-purpose authentication
  • Need for monetary incentive to make it a mass reality
  • Need to standardize universally
  • Lack of knowledge among the staffs

1.2 Objectives and target deliverables

The project focuses on the major objectives of blockchain technology in healthcare organizations. It provides the importance of this technology as well as its changes in the pharmaceutical companies along with healthcare units. It provides a trustable base to the patients as well as to the staffs and doctors (Deloitte, 2019). In this section, the assignment would provide some targeted aspects, which are required for improving this technology.

The main objectives of this project are to provide ways of using blockchain technologies in

  • It provides knowledge about the prototype used by blockchain technology
  • To provide security to the documents by using blockchain technology

2. Project Methodology

This project is based on the application of blockchain technology in the healthcare industry for elevating the effectiveness of information management system associated with the healthcare industry. This is a research project and for developing this project following considerations will be adopted- 

  • Development research by considering previous research in this ground
  • In this study, secondary data collection will be considered as the method of data collection
  • Development of the final project report and presentation on this topic
  • Sort-out effective resources in by reading different resources in this ground

3. Project management approach

Cryptography can be considered one of the basic building blocks associated with blockchain development. Development of an effective cryptographic coding can help to increase the security of digital communication process, which is the main functional unit, related to the information management associated with the healthcare service. In this project, an effective cryptographic coding will be developed and will be used for a database management system in healthcare industries. In this context, the public key and the hash key will be developed by considering the number of care users.

Figure 1: Cryptographic process

(Source: Medium, 2018)

Cryptographic application in the digital communication process can be considered one of the most secured processes of digital communication (Medium, 2018). In cryptography, both sender and receiver use a key for opening the encryption and decryption of a specific message. Due to this reason, without having the specific key the content of massage cannot be hacked. This makes the entire process of digital communication secured. For each particular private key, a particular public key is developed at the beginning of the cryptographic process. Hence, without this particular key, this message cannot be opened. Since the channel of distribution of messages associated with the healthcare industry is insecure, hence the application of cryptographic process can help to elevate the security level.  

3.1 Results and outcome with scope

This research report will provide knowledge related to the application of the blockchain process in the information management system associated with healthcare services. In order to elevate the effectiveness of this report proper breakdown structure of this project will be provided in this report in such a manner by which project time can be optimized. This report also will delineate the procedure of development of public and private associated with the encryption and decryption process by considering the knowledge associated with this topic from the previous ground. This report also provides knowledge related to the considerations of different procedures at the time of developing hash, public and private key, which can help to realize the process by which the application of blockchain process can be made more effective in healthcare.
