Security Model for Healthcare Application In Cloud Computing

IJCSEC Front Page

Personal Health Records (PHRs) is based on cloud virtual machine in web oriented application in which the lifelong health data of patients, who should be able to show them conveniently and securely to selected disables in an institution. The MyPHRMachines, a cloud-based PHR system taking a radically new architectural solution to health record portability. In MyPHR Machines, health-related data and the application software to view and analyze it are separately deployed in the PHR system. After uploading their medical data to MyPHRMachines, patients can access them again from remote virtual machines that contain the right software to visualize and analyze them without any need for conversion. Patients can share their remote virtual machine session with selected caregivers, my aim at providing patients (and their trusted caregivers) remote desktop or tablet computer access to all their PHR data, and support this access by the software that matches the data format. Since do not tackle semantic data integration in the paper, one can more specifically label this as health record mobility and portability. The person will need only a Web browser to access the pre-loaded fragments of their lifelong PHR.
