Abstract: The healthcare systems are making changes by incorporating technological innovations to serve patients and secure medical data. Blockchain is an emerging field that has become one of the most examined techniques for managing and securing data transfer over trusted peer-to-peer systems. This study focuses on the existing literature to identify the challenges and solutions in healthcare systems. Several research articles were thoroughly examined and analysed to conclude how blockchain technology can overcome security challenges in the healthcare sector. This paper was completed using a systematic literature review to find and aggregate all relevant studies to answer specific research questions. The anticipated contribution of this paper is to provide an overview for healthcare organisations and practitioners to understand the significance of blockchain technology solutions in healthcare. In addition, to motivate and provide direction for advancing knowledge to better secure, distribute, and manage medical data.
