Abstract
In recent years blockchain technology has shown its considerable adaptability as a variety of market sectors required ways of integrating its potentials into their operations. Blockchain is well-known for its potential applications in financial and banking sectors so far. However, as a distributed technology blockchain can be utilized as a powerful tool for immense daily life applications. Healthcare is one of the significant area of application among others where blockchain is considered to make a strong impact. Nowadays, a huge healthcare data are generated every day from both medical institutions, govt. hospitals, private hospitals and individuals. Storage and sharing such large amount of healthcare data is important while challenging as well.
