With the advancements in the era of artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, and big data, there is a need for secure, decentralized medical record storage and retrieval systems. While cloud storage solves storage issues, it is challenging to realize secure sharing of records over the network. Medi-block record in the healthcare system has brought a new digitalization method for patients’ medical records. This centralized technology provides a symmetrical process between the hospital and doctors when patients urgently need to go to a different or nearby hospital. It enables electronic medical records to be available with the correct authentication and restricts access to medical data retrieval. Medi-block record is the consumer-centered healthcare data system that brings reliable and transparent datasets for the medical record. This study presents an extensive review of proposed solutions aiming to protect the privacy and integrity of medical data by securing data sharing for Medi-block records. It also aims to propose a comprehensive investigation of the recent advances in different methods of securing data sharing, such as using Blockchain technology, Access Control, Privacy-Preserving, Proxy Re-Encryption, and Service-On-Chain approach. Finally, we highlight the open issues and identify the challenges regarding secure data sharing for Medi-block records in the healthcare systems.
