Block-Chain security is the hot arising topic now-a-days. Block-Chain helps to get more secure, accurate and transparent data security in all sectors. In Health Sector, maintaining medical records is crucial, sharing medical records between record room to researcher needs security system for sharing. Here, Block-Chain provides best security in maintaining records and medical reports transmission. In this paper, we discuss the impact of Block-Chain in health sector for increasing security during data transmission from medical Record room to medical Institutions for their research study. We proposed a Block-Chain architecture for managing data of patients. In addition, we discussed the characteristics of the block-chain in medical perspective and then propose Medical Record based architecture for secure transmission of data between connected nodes.
