The multi-layered blockchain-based electronic health records (ML-BbEHR) framework aims to address persistent healthcare issues such as data privacy and access control. Utilizing a multi-layered blockchain architecture, ML-BbEHR segments EHR data into categories like medical histories and clinical datasets, each managed within its distinct blockchain layer. This enhances security and optimizes data management. Unlike single-layer systems, this architecture mitigates latency issues. Additionally, the framework incorporates fingerprint authentication as an alternative to traditional cryptographic keys, bolstering patient identity verification. Smart contracts are also deployed across layers to delineate rules and permissions for healthcare data access, enhancing data integrity and security. This architecture is built on a general, non-specific blockchain platform chosen for its robust security features.
