Medical Information Security and Privacy Solution for Smart Healthcare Industries

Medical Information Security and Privacy Solution for Smart Healthcare Industries 150 150 Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (JBHI)

Medical Information Security and Privacy Solution for Smart Healthcare Industries PosterDue to smart healthcare system is highly connected to advanced wearable devices, internet of things (IoT) and mobile internet, valuable patient information and other significant medical records are easily transmitted over the public network. The personal patient information and clinical records are also stored on the existing databases and local servers of the hospital and healthcare centres. This information not only provide a reference for healthcare professionals to make correct decision on the patient, but also provide basis for other professionals to make effective treatment and develop future plans for correct diagnosis. Further, the databases may be used by various research communities for different directions of research, without the any possibility of privacy violations. However, stealing of healthcare data is growing crime every day to greatly impact on financial loss. In past few years, coronavirus pandemic has been declared as a global health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO). In this period, large amount of collected data to combat COVID-19 pandemic raises many security and privacy concerns. Aiming to guarantee the security and privacy of patient record in the transfer process, the integrity authentication of them is extremely important. Therefore, proper medical information security is becoming equally important in smart healthcare.

Motivated by these facts, this special issue targets the researchers from both academia and industrial to explore and share new ideas, approaches, theories and practices with focus on information security and privacy solutions for smart healthcare industries.
