Abstract

Blockchain is a peer-to-peer (P2P) decentralized digital data base of distributed, secured, and immutable transaction between any untrusted parties without the involvement of trusted third party via an agreement though smart contract algorithm. These characteristics of blockchain are brought together with precision medicine to achieve the overall interoperability of medical health records within trusted environment. The focus of this paper is to present a review of integrating the precision medicine with blockchain technology to overcome the challenges in the field. This research also investigates the role of blockchain technology to resolve the issues of trust, ownership, and transparency in precision medicine field.
