Abstract– As a relatively new technology, Blockchain’s applications are still being explored in many fields. Its usage for the secure storage of data makes it an ideal candidate to update the modern healthcare communication system. Currently, hospitals in the United States have no good way to securely communicate important patient data between facilities. Using Python and Hyperledger Iroha, this project looks into the applications of Blockchain to manage access to healthcare data and improve healthcare for patients and providers.
