In this 2021 article published in Frontiers in Digital Health, Spanakis et al. describe their research efforts towards the development of a more advanced way of securely transmitting and sharing sensitive healthcare data, including by use of blockchain and cloud computing. They first provide background on interoperability and data sharing in healthcare and the challenges that face such activities. This background also includes discussion of an interoperability framework in the European context and how it could be applied to their research. The authors then discuss the current status of standards-based health data exchange and how blockchain fits into that picture. They then propose their Innovative Secure Information Sharing Platform (InSISP), which is "able to support a fast and efficient medical information sharing at both national and cross-national levels, taking into account sharing constraints, including those imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)." Afterwards, they summarize their recommendations based on their InSISP, concluding that their platform has the potential improve healthcare data sharing and transmission, though not without challenges in addressing blockchained healthcare data in the scope of GDPR, as well as the overall complexity and heterogeneity of big healthcare data and the problems that arise.
