Studies in health technology and informatics

The challenge for security and privacy services in distributed health settings.


PMID 18376039

Abstract

The health care sector is quickly exploiting Information and Communication Technologies towards the provision of e-health services. According to recent surveys, one of the most severe restraining factors for the proliferation of e-health is the (lack of) security measures required to assure both service providers and patients that their relationship and transactions will be carried out in privacy, correctly, and timely. A large number of individuals are not willing to engage in e-health (or are only participating at a reduced level) simply because they do not trust the e-health service providers' sites and the underlying information and communication technologies to be secure enough. This paper considers privacy and security issues and challenges for e-health applications.
