A Healthcare Information System for Secure Delivery and Remote Management of Medical Records

  title={A Healthcare Information System for Secure Delivery and Remote Management of Medical Records},
  author={Hyoung-kee Choi and Ki-Eun Shin and Hyoungshick Kim},
  journal={IEICE Trans. Inf. Syst.},
With the rapid merger of healthcare business and information technology, more healthcare institutions and medical practices are sharing information. Since these records often contain patients’ sensitive personal information, Healthcare Information Systems (HISs) should be properly designed to manage these records in a secure manner. We propose a novel security design for the HIS complying with the security and privacy rules. The proposed system defines protocols to ensure secure delivery of…

Privacy Enhanced Healthcare Information Sharing System for Home-Based Care Environments

This study can provide a baseline towards building distinctive intelligent treatment options to clinicians and serve as a model for home-based nursing care to enhance healthcare data access and secure information delivery to preserve user's privacy.



A Cryptographic Key Management Solution for HIPAA Privacy/Security Regulations

In this paper, a flexible cryptographic key management solution is proposed to facilitate interoperations among the applied cryptographic mechanisms to comply with the HIPAA regulations.

Securing medical records on smart phones

This work introduces a flexible architecture for the secure storage of medical records on smart phones that allows for efficient revocation of access rights and is robust against adversaries who can access the phone's storage offline.

Bridging a gap in the proposed personal health record

This work proposes a design for a portable personal health record system that complies with HIPAA standards of security and interaction, and suggests that it is possible to develop a useful, yet secure PHR.

Data security and privacy in wireless body area networks

Two important data security issues are looked into: secure and dependable distributed data storage, and fine-grained distributed data access control for sensitive and private patient medical data.

Secure and Scalable Cloud-Based Architecture for e-Health Wireless Sensor Networks

This paper proposes an innovative architecture for collecting and accessing large amount of data generated by medical sensor networks and proposes an effective and flexible security mechanism that guarantees confidentiality, integrity as well as fine grained access control to outsourced medical data.

A biometric method to secure telemedicine systems

This paper proposes a solution for securing wireless data transmission in telemedicine systems, i.e. within a body sensor network (BSN), between the BSN and server as well as between the server and professionals who have assess to the server, using a biometric approach for securing communication at all 3 levels.

Rendezvous-based access control for medical records in the pre-hospital environment

This work believes that the rendezvous-based access control mechanism provides a useful alternative to remote access to a centralized system and to patients carrying their own medical record (on a smartcard e.g.).

IBE-Lite: A Lightweight Identity-Based Cryptography for Body Sensor Networks

IBE-Lite is developed, a lightweight identity-based encryption suitable for sensors in a BSN that balance security and privacy with accessibility and performs evaluation using experiments conducted on commercially available sensors.

Sage: a strong privacy-preserving scheme against global eavesdropping for ehealth systems

A strong privacy-preserving Scheme against Global Eavesdropping, named SAGE, for eHealth systems is proposed, which can achieve not only the content oriented privacy but also the contextual privacy against a strong global adversary.

A novel biometrics method to secure wireless body area sensor networks for telemedicine and m-health

The use of this conduit in the security mechanism of BASN is explored by a biometrics approach that uses an intrinsic characteristic of the human body as the authentication identity or the means of securing the distribution of a cipher key to secure inter-BASN communications.
