Blockchain, healthcare, IoMT, framework, measures


Blockchain and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) are widely used in numerous fields, including Healthcare, for applications like secure storage, transactions, in addition development automation. There are no security measures for IoMT devices, which can easily be hacked or affected. Providing remote patient diagnosis is another requirement of smart healthcare. Data protection, costs, memory, scalability, trust, and openness among diverse platforms are all major concerns for the smart healthcare framework. Moreover, blockchain is a revolutionary innovation by immutability structures that provide secure administration, authentication, and access control for IoMT devices. IoMT devices support immutability, as well as secure management provided by blockchain technology. Remote data processing and collection are key features of the IoMT service, a cloud-based internet application. To meet the needs of the healthcare area, an accessible, fault-tolerant, secure, perceptible, and private blockchain is required. In this research work, a blockchain-based autonomous model is being proposed by utilizing fused machine learning to enhance the quality of patient healthcare monitoring in a better and more efficient way. The proposed framework simulation results are enhanced than the previously published approaches in terms of 93% accuracy as well as a 7% miss rate.
