We discuss the integration of contextual information with team-based access control. The TMAC model was formulated by Thomas in [1] to provide access control for collaborative activity best accomplished by teams of users. In TMAC, access control revolves around teams, where a "team" is an abstraction that encapsulates a collection of users in specific roles(More)
In many health care information systems medical images are an important part of the multimedia medical patient record. Most of the work on multimedia medical images security until now has focused on cryptographic approaches. While valuable, cryptography is not enough to control access to medical images. Therefore additional protection approaches should be(More)
An object-oriented medical database management system is presented for a typical cardiologic center, facilitating epidemiological trials. Object-oriented analysis and design were used for the system design, offering advantages for the integrity and extendibility of medical information systems. The system was developed using object-oriented design and(More)
Healthcare environments are a representative case of collaborative environments since individuals (e.g. doctors) in many cases collaborate in order to provide care to patients in a more proficient way. At the same time modern healthcare institutions are increasingly interested in sharing access of their information resources in the networked environment.(More)
OBJECTIVES Internet technologies provide an attractive infrastructure for efficient and low cost communications in regional health information networks. The advantages provided by the Internet come however with a significantly greater element of risk to the confidentiality and integrity of information. This is because the Internet has been designed(More)
The aim is to outline the framework of a generic methodology for specifying countermeasures in health care environments. The method is specifically aimed at the enhancement of security in existing health care systems, and a key element is the use of predetermined 'profiles' by which these may be classified. Example scenarios are presented to illustrate how(More)
In this paper, an ontology-based system (KnowBaSICS-M) is presented for the semantic management of Medical Computational Problems (MCPs), i.e., medical problems and computerised algorithmic solutions. The system provides an open environment, which: (1) allows clinicians and researchers to retrieve potential algorithmic solutions pertinent to a medical(More)
