Why Do Healthcare Providers & Startups Prefer Blockchain?

Patients are given a special decryption key by blockchain and healthcare, which helps to encrypt patient health information (PHI) so that doctors or anybody else cannot access it. This effectively ends digital identity fraud while assisting patients and clients in authenticating doctors in order to maintain a secure electronic health record. Additionally, it makes it easier for customers and patients to submit medical insurance claims.
