Abstract

Background:


Today blockchain and IoT technologies are being greatly used and exploited in several fields, particularly for Internet of Things healthcare. In healthcare systems, real-time sensory data can be obtained from patients and processed and analyzed by using IoT devices.


Materials and Methods:


The data that are aggregated from IoT are centrally computed, processed, and saved. Data centralization can lead to problems, potential tampering or manipulation, privacy evasion, and then failure. These serious problems can be solved by using blockchain through decentralization and IoT data storage. Therefore, blockchain and IoT technologies can be aimed to become a credible option for using IoT decentralization in healthcare systems.


This paper, firstly, introduces a brief explanation of blockchain. Secondly, it discusses the usage of blockchain of common consensus algorithms in the environment of health. Finally, the extent of the use of blockchain to support healthcare sector ecosystems and services. This paper explained the architecture of IoMT which is used for accessing, managing, and storing the data of healthcare.


Results:


Presenting a survey about studies and research that face the challenges of the Internet of Things and healthcare, and proposed solutions to save data from tampering.


Conclusion:


With the stringent protection standards in the healthcare industry, many studies have centered on the usage of blockchain in IoMT Stuff. The successful implementation of the IoMT, demands a lot of personalized, patient-centric treatment Internet of Medical Things that enhance affordability (reduced operating costs, cost-effective care), enhanced life quality, simplicity and ease of use.
