MAHRA is a decentralized healthcare record management platform with a vision to solve the problems in the fragmented healthcare industry as well as improved outcomes for patients. Our proposal involves the implementation of a blockchain, healthcare record as an overarching access control manager of electronic health records.
MAHRA provides an easy and secure access to the patient’s health records through a robust mobile or web application. This can simplify the work of doctors, specialists and hospital staff as they can access the information on the go anywhere, anytime in case of emergencies or accidents. Access to good healthcare shouldn’t depend on where you live.
When medical data are generated, for example from a doctor’s note or patient’s wearable device, a digital signature is created for verification. This data is then encrypted and sent to the encrypted cloud storage where a pointer to the health record is registers in the blockchain along with the user’s unique ID.
