The healthcare industry is a vast field where technological innovation plays a crucial role in developing a robust medical infrastructure around us. Whenever a patient visits a hospital with any kind of illness, the doctor conducts a few check-ups and sometimes depending upon the health condition, the patient will be recommended to take up further tests which will enable the physicians to make more informed decisions and provide the best treatment to the patients.
From the moment a patient visits the doctor, various information like age, identity, current health conditions, history of ailments, and medications has been collected. In a country like the USA, these data are electronically stored in the form of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Electronic Health Records (EHR). Though the volume of data collected is enormous, the existing centralized medical record management system is still inefficient, clumsy, and they miserably fail when it comes to data analysis, security, and interoperability. Most importantly, giving patients complete access to their information.
If you are looking for a clear, high-security, efficient data management system, data analysis, interoperability, clutter-free medical software development solution, Blockchain App Factory is the right solution for you.
The term Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Medical Records software (EMR) are almost used interchangeably. Both are digital records of patients’ information. EMR is restricted to being a digital version of a patient’s chart, medical and treatment history from the single physician or a hospital. Most often, it’s not shared with another hospital. EHR is a complete record of patient’s information from multiple doctors which includes, all test results, medical history, history of illness, and medication.
|Electronic Medical Record||Electronic Health Record|
|Digital version of patients chart from single hospital source.||Complete Health Record of Patients Information|
|Records are not shared with another hospital||Records are shared and accessed between multiple healthcare service providers|
The EMR /EHR helps doctors track data over time and easily identify which patients are due for primary checkups or other medical screening tests. It also allows physicians to analyse the well-being of the patients based on their parameters, such vaccinations and blood-pressure and other scan results. Doctors can implement new changes without paperwork procedures and repetition of data. These digital medical data improves treatment efficiency, doctor-patient relationship, lower cost healthcare facility, remote monitoring options and better treatment options for patients.
Each incoming patient generates a lot of information, and every such information is important to understand the present condition of the patients. This information ranges from filling a patient's treatment histories to analyzing reports. Considering the importance of such data, the proper maintenance of data is essential for the smooth functioning of the healthcare industries.
Thus, the adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) has brought many beneficial changes in eliminating paperwork. Most importantly, healthcare professionals have more real-time data managed and monitored through a centralized digital system.
Not much that, digitization has paved the way for scheduling appointments, submitting medical claims, etc.
Hassle-free and organized data maintenance is made possible through a digital data structure. Pulling the relevant data as and when necessary, is less time consuming and leads to increased efficiency. It leads to very little to zero paperwork to do, so the risk of human-error is curbed altogether.
The increased dependency on digital infrastructure in the medical industry has led to better access to treatment at a low cost. It is expected that the complete adoption of digital infrastructure can reduce the cost by 3% of the overall medical cost.
Still, it is a challenge to get in touch with the doctors time-to-time under busy schedules. But, digital communication facilities have reduced the requirement of meeting doctors in person. Instead, we can stay connected with the doctor through video calls and other social media apps.
Remote guidance and monitoring have taken the doctor-patient relationship to the next level. They save a lot of time and costs due to frequent visits to regular check-ups.

Blockchain has been an exciting field of research and development for a long time; its benefits have been used across various industries. Similarly, the health sector across the globe is set to benefit from blockchain technology due to data security, privacy, user experience, decentralization, and distributed immutable ledger.
The critical issue that the blockchain technology set to solve is data duplication, loads of medical record papers, misdiagnosis cases, counterfeit drugs, delayed medical care, and inefficient healthcare information exchange.
In the current EHR system, its functionalities are electronic storage of medical records, lab test information, patients’ appointments with the doctor, accounts, and billing. So, blockchain technology should focus on providing secure, tamper-proof, interoperability of medical documents stored inside the decentralized chain of blocks across different platforms, security, and cost-effectiveness.
The anonymity of the user and the difficulty in identifying the account holders
The medical data or information stored on the blockchain is distributed across the network.
The information stored is timestamped in the immutable distributed ledger so that it can be accessed by all the necessary people inside the system.
The information inside the blockchain is stored and secured using cryptographic algorithms.
All the concerned parties who are given access to the information inside the blockchain can read, locate, add, and audit the information as and when it is stored.
With easy accessibility to reliable and updated medical records with all the necessary information, there is no need to take up all the tests from the beginning.
Blockchain App Factory is a team of blockchain enthusiasts and developers who can provide insightful guidance and solutions to strengthen your EMR and EHR systems with all necessary features that enable hospitals/ doctors to improve clinical productivity, analyze patient’s information and stay connected with patients via the portal for excellent healthcare service.
