The rapid growth in mobile technology makes the delivery of healthcare data and services on mobile phones a reality. However, the healthcare data is very sensitive and has to be protected against unauthorized access. While most of the development work on security of mobile healthcare today focuses on the data encryption and secure authentica-tion in remote(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to develop a solution to preserve security and privacy in a healthcare environment where health-sensitive information will be accessed by many parties and stored in various distributed databases. The solution should maintain anonymous medical records and it should be able to link anonymous medical information in(More)
Handwashing, respiratory hygiene and antibiotic resistance remain major public health concerns. In order to facilitate an effective outcome when teaching the basic principles of hand and respiratory hygiene, educational interventions should first target school children. As computer games are ubiquitous in most children's lives, e-Bug developed computer(More)
Remote monitoring is fundamental in eHealth and introducing mobile devices in the remote monitoring process can provide additional benefits to both patients and medical personnel. For mobile remote monitoring systems to be successful, however, the authentication process must be in place to prevent the misuse of the system. In this paper we analyse the use(More)
As a complement to the e-Bug teaching pack, two e-Bug games were developed to provide content that aimed to entertain as well as to educate. A set of agreed learning outcomes (LOs) were provided by the scientific partners of the e-Bug Project and the games were developed using user-centred design techniques (the needs, wants and limitations of the potential(More)
— Mobile and wireless devices have penetrated the health care sector due to their increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use nature. However, in such health care applications the privacy and security of the transmitted information must be preserved. Also different personal involved in the healthcare industry must have different(More)
Mobile devices have penetrated the healthcare sector due to their increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use nature. However, in healthcare applications the privacy and security of the transmitted information must be preserved. Therefore applications require a concrete security framework based on long-term security keys, such as the(More)
There are many advantages to deploy Mobile devices in eHealth systems, however; security is still an issue in particular authentication and User privacy. In this paper we propose a novel architecture which integrate 3GPP UMTS mobile technology with Web services that addresses authentication and privacy concern within eHealth environment. The architecture(More)
The Internet and mobile networks have penetrated the healthcare sector due to their increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use nature. However, in such healthcare environment the privacy and security of the transmitted information must be preserved. When dealing with health sensitive information at times it is vital to protect the(More)
