Blockchain is a disruptive technology with decentralized architecture widely adopted across various sectors for its potential advantages. It provides secure, transparent, and verifiable transactions with the proof of rights and ownership.

Blockchain offers the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) a variety of opportunities to support and transform healthcare services to end-users with improved trust, security, and privacy by transferring centralized medical systems into decentralized digital identity and information management systems. As IoMT continues to integrate medical devices, healthcare organizations can utilize these services to empower the growth of the medical sector with valuable data sources.

However, with exponential growth of the medical data come possible security and privacy threats, especially with the development of future generation computing systems. To effectively maintain data accountability and audit, private blockchain solutions can be implemented, but existing blockchain-assisted IoMT systems have significant drawbacks such as scalability, inadequate ledger storage facilities and a need for increased processing power.

Topics

To explore this subject, this issue will focus on advances in blockchain for IoMT.

We seek original high-quality research articles on blockchain-assisted advanced security models, and methodologies that investigate and propose improved performance, scalability, and storage for the IoMT environment.

Issues we wish to explore in this issue include but are not limited to:
