Revolutionizing Public Health: A Blockchain - Based System for Secure Genetic and Medical Data Management

Kunal Dhanda [3] | Sweta Sehrawat [3]

Abstract: This research paper introduces a groundbreaking concept for a blockchain-based government system, specifically designed to securely record and maintain comprehensive medical and genetic data of individuals. The primary aim of this system is to equip future generations with crucial information regarding their genetic health predispositions, thereby facilitating informed decision-making in areas like family planning and healthcare. Leveraging the robust security and transparency features of blockchain technology, the system ensures the utmost confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of sensitive medical records. This innovative approach not only fosters proactive health management but also aids in identifying potential genetic risks, significantly contributing to the prevention of hereditary diseases. By providing insights into familial medical histories, the system can play a pivotal role in preventing marriages with high genetic risk factors, thereby reducing the likelihood of transmitting serious genetic conditions to offspring. The paper explores the design, ethical considerations, implementation strategies, and potential impacts of this novel system, highlighting its role in transforming public health strategies and genetic research.
