Recently internet of medical things (IoMT) act as a smart doctor using sensor wearable’s device in human body. This smart doctor device senses necessary medical data from human and transfer via network immediately to physician. It is important to transfer sensitive data very securely. Blockchain becomes trending technology to provide high security to both end users in the network. Traditionally security structure is relying on cryptographic techniques which is very expensive and takes more time in securely transmitting data. To overcome this issue, this paper builds a cost effective, blockchain with IoMT using fog-cloud computing. The aim of research is to provide cost effective healthcare services in the present system. This study develops an IoMT systems using fusion of scheduling techniques in blockchain. We propose a Smart Contract with Function Based Cost Efficient Task Scheduling (FTS-SCON) algorithm in blockchain framework. The proposed algorithm uses functions to schedule the task in the blockchain which is cost effective. With the help of cryptography based Blockchain schemes with smart contracts enables consistency and validation of data with symmetric cryptography. Simulation results shows the proposed outperform all existing elements regarding data security, validation by 10%, and cost of application execution by 30% in IoMT.
