Abstract

Nowadays, physicians are increasingly utilizing mobile health (mHealth) applications in clinical care. Despite their attractive features, mHealth applications may pose substantial risks to the privacy and security of personal health information. This paper presents an access control framework which is incorporated in PHRManager, an Android-enabled application providing ubiquitous access to patient Personal Health Records (PHRs) by authorized users (i.e. patients themselves and attending healthcare professionals).
