Growing healthcare is very essentials nowadays. In the present situation, healthcare organizations are facing a serious problem in sharing medical information without giving up the privacy and integrity of information. Also an important research issue is to store large volume of health information and provide safety towards tampering and misuse of records. This paper aims to address the issues of information security and authentication in healthcare. Blockchain technology has the probable of immutability, integrity and decentralized architecture to manage records of the health sector. Here, we propose a blockchain based system using public key cryptography to be tamper resistant and secure the information. Our proposed architecture provides numerous opportunities for healthcare industry such as reduced transaction costs, increased transparency for regulatory reporting, effective healthcare data management and healthcare records universality.
