Real world healthcare systems are generally large and overly complex systems. Designing privacy-friendly protocols for such systems is a challenging task. In this paper we present a privacy-preserving protocol for the Belgian healthcare system. The proposed protocol protects the patients’ privacy throughout the prescription handling process, while complying with most aspects of the current Belgian healthcare practise. The presented protocol relies on standard privacy-preserving credential systems, and verifiable public key cryptography, which makes it readily fit for implementation.
