It has been discovered that the storage problem of complex health records and data has been addressed, but there were still several issues with data security sharing with cloud technology. The decentralization attribute of blockchain will help in solving the problem. In electronic health records, blockchain can assist in reducing data sharing and interoperability in the industry by creating an overarching mechanism connecting different personal forms. It can also mimic data sharing by directly bridging the gap between owners and buyers. Therefore, this chapter will provide detailed information on Advancing health research data analysis with blockchain.
