In recent years, medical institutions in Taiwan provide patients with access to the online platform to obtain medical inspection reports. However, these medical inspection report can only retrieve online, and there is no convenient way to share the medical inspection report to other institutions. The reason is that the authentication for online report access is cumbersome. Besides, centralized storage medical inspection report method is still vulnerable to prevent the inspection report from being tampered. This study intends to create a blockchain network for cross-hospital healthcare checkup report sharing with the Ethereum consortium blockchain and consolidating the integrity of patient medical inspection report via the immutable feature provided by the blockchain. With smart contracts and token-based design, we provide patients to not only authorize other hospitals to have access right for their checkup report, but also protect their security and privacy during data exchange. Finally, the data format in our proposed system follows the international medical exchange standard HL7/CDA to improve the efficiency of medical data exchange.
