Resumen

Patients’ and doctors’ mistrust of data security in third-party information storage is a latent and relevant problem in the healthcare sector in Ecuador. This paper presents a data model to improve information security in Ecuador’s healthcare sector by using Blockchain technology. A descriptive research is conducted using an exploratory-deductive, qualitative methodology to analyze relevant studies referencing Blockchain and Smart Contract technologies in the healthcare industry. The results of the study present the definition of participants and roles for a Blockchain-based healthcare model in Ecuador, a conceptual architecture to improve information security in the healthcare sector and impact factors. It is concluded that Blockchain technology allows sharing information securely; the proposed model is developed in the Hyperledger platform with 56% of information analyzed remaining as a private network.
