As the healthcare industry adopts more digital technologies, guaranteeing the security and privacy of sensitive patient data becomes increasingly important. Traditional centralised authentication solutions leave cyber threats and unauthorised access vulnerable. In response, the research demonstrates a novel strategy to improving data security and authentication in a SAP-enabled healthcare system by leveraging encryption and block chain technologies. The research paper discusses the development and integration of a block chain-based decentralised identity management system within the SAP platform. Each healthcare entity, including patients, doctors, and administrators, is given a distinct digital identity that is protected by using base 64 activity through DocuSign protects in SAP platform. The benefits of the proposed solution are assessed using a complete security analysis that measures data confidentiality, integrity, and availability. In comparison to traditional authentication systems, the block chain-based approach is more resilient to cyberattacks and data breaches.
