Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the necessity for agile health services that enable reliable and secure information exchange, but achieving proper, private, and secure sharing of EMRs remains a challenge due to diverse data formats and fragmented records across multiple data silos, resulting in hindered coordination between healthcare teams, potential medical errors, and delays in patient care. While centralized EMR systems pose privacy risks and data format diversity complicates interoperability, blockchain technology offers a promising solution by providing decentralized storage, ensuring data integrity, enhancing access control, eliminating intermediaries, and increasing efficiency in healthcare. By focusing on a Brazilian case study, this paper explores the significance of EMR standards, security challenges, and blockchain-based approaches to promote interoperability and secure data sharing in the healthcare industry.
