Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has revolutionized the way medical infrastructure has been managed in the past. Multiple platforms in IoMT have disparate communication standards, data format requirements, and access policies, which produce immense overhead during data transfer among these platforms. In order to provide seamless healthcare services using IoMT, interoperability concerns of heterogeneous devices need to be addressed. Smart contracts using blockchain provide a secure communication for distributed objects to interact in a secure way. We propose a Blockchain-based Secure Interoperable Framework (BSIIoMT) using smart contracts for secure communication in IoMT. We present components, workflow, and design considerations of the BSIIoMT framework to show the feasibility of using edge-enabled blockchain for secure interoperability in IoMT. The BSIIoMT framework is an ongoing project where we present the framework and its components in this research where further results and evaluation will be presented in future.
