Cloud computing technology is one of the hottest trends in information technology (IT) today. It is an important alternative to ensure high data processing and exchange. Thus, this technology can be used in the health sector to exchange patient medical records and health-related information. However, there are fears of the leakage of confidential patient data. This research studied two main contexts, the technological and organizational contexts, to find out the concerns about the use of cloud computing technology in the health sector. The results indicated the desire of hospitals to use cloud computing because of its enormous benefits in the health sector, with concern about data security with cloud computing. For this reason, this paper is proposed. In addition, a model  for protecting and storing the patient's medical record using two technologies: cloud computing and blockchain. The model guarantees confidentiality, high protection, and privacy of patient information, and provides all beneficiaries of cloud computing with all the needed information when wanted.
