Abstract

This paper focuses on the design and validation experience of an eHealth system that provides end users with web and mobile access to their personal health records (PHR). The system has been tested with different mobile devices to ensure full compliance with privacy and confidentiality requirements. As a result, both patients and medical doctors can share sensible medical data in a secure and efficient way. The pilot site has been evaluated under the cooperation of 375 volunteers from a global mobile operator, a regional medical company, a SME applications developer and a state university with deep background on eHealth. Users’ feedback has been quite satisfactory and promising.
