Abstract

With the development of medical data informatization, the data security, data privacy, and data controllability of electronic medical data with patient's personal privacy have gained social attention. Blockchain technology has decentralized characteristics, and the development of blockchain technology provides an effective solution for the secure sharing of e-medical data. Many scholars have proposed e-medical data security sharing solutions based on blockchain technology, and these solutions have attempted to solve the security problems encountered in sharing traditional e-medical data. By summarizing and analyzing the schemes in this field, this study analyzes the advantages, disadvantages, and challenges that the current mainstream schemes have, mainly in terms of blockchain data security storage, access control security sharing, and so on, in order to promote the further development of the e-medical data security sharing scheme based on blockchain technology. This study analyzes the blockchain-based e-medical data security sharing scheme proposed by scholars by analyzing the blockchain technology, cryptography technology, smart contract technology, P2P network technology and other related topics. Through systematic analysis and comparison, it explores the challenges of the current research and provides references for the future proposals of blockchain technology-based schemes.
