Abstract

Mobile in conjunction with cloud computing can fulfil the vision of “Pervasive Healthcare” by enabling authorized healthcare participants to access services and required patient information without locational, time and other restraints. Of particular importance on such healthcare systems that incorporate mobile devices and cloud services is protecting the confidentiality of patient information. On these grounds, this paper proposes an access control framework for providing role-based context-aware authorization services with regard services invocations and patient information accesses. According to this, authorization decisions are taken according to contextual constraints that result from the domain ontology inferring that is used to represent context information.
