Abstract: The medical industry urgently needs to address issues such as secure storage, reliable sharing, access control and privacy protection. In this article, we propose EHRChain, a blockchain-based EHR system that uses an attribute-based homomorphic cryptosystem to solve the aforementioned problems. First, we designed a medical record storage solution based on blockchain and IPFS technology to achieve secure large-capacity medical data storage and reliable sharing. Second, we proposed an improved cryptographic primitive called SHDPCPC-CP-ABE. Our SHDPCPC-CP-ABE simultaneously realizes the functions of partially concealing ciphertext-based semi-policy and dynamic authority change. In addition, our regime achieves subject neutrality of forensic identification of medical disputes and fine-grained access control to medical data. Third, our system applies an additional homomorphic cryptosystem, the Paillier cryptosystem, with optimized parameters to protect patient privacy during the medical insurance claim process.
