Abstract

Information technology for development is the tool that has been around for ages and it is now mainly focusing on making people lives easy including of those in a health sector. However, health practitioners and patients are somehow had not fully experienced this benefits due to sensitive information distribution and security concerns around the distribution of electronic health records. There have been various issues and challenges on security breaches, leakage of confidential patient records and computer attacks which have been raised on security and privacy concerns in electronic health records. The unauthorized access, denial of services, lack of standardization of the system increases mistrust on electronic health record system and makes it very difficult for the parties involved in handling and transmission of patients’ record. Therefore the aim of this paper is to propose an efficient and cost-effective face recognition security framework through Wi-Fi to enable the monitoring and access control on patient record in developing countries.
