Blockchain technology has been widely studied and has been used in various industries to provide benefits such as security, privacy, and decentralization. The healthcare sector can also benefit from blockchain technology, particularly in the area of electronic health records (EHRs). EHR systems often face issues with data security, integrity, and management. This paper includes the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of blockchain in EHR. A blockchain based model has also been proposed and implemented by following the SSDLC methodology. Our model aims to provide secure storage of electronic records through the use of blockchain storage. This framework could provide a scalable, secure, and integral blockchain-based solution for EHR systems.
