This comprehensive review investigates the impact of blockchain technology on enhancing data security and sharing in healthcare systems. With the increasing digitization of healthcare data and the growing concern for privacy and security, traditional data storage and sharing methods have become vulnerable to breaches and unauthorized access. Blockchain technology, known for its decentralized and immutable nature, has gained attention as a potential solution to address these challenges. Through an extensive analysis of existing literature and case studies, this review examines the effectiveness of blockchain technology in healthcare systems. The study explores various aspects, including data integrity, confidentiality, interoperability, and patient consent management. Additionally, the review evaluates the potential benefits and limitations associated with implementing blockchain technology in healthcare settings. Findings from this review reveal that blockchain technology has the potential to significantly enhance data security and sharing in healthcare systems. By leveraging cryptographic techniques and distributed consensus algorithms, blockchain offers improved data integrity, enhanced privacy, and increased transparency. The technology also facilitates secure and efficient data exchange among different stakeholders, promoting interoperability and seamless collaboration. However, the review also identifies certain challenges and considerations that need to be addressed for successful implementation of blockchain in healthcare. These include scalability issues, regulatory frameworks, interoperability with existing systems, and the need for standardized protocols.
