An Enhancement of Medical Interoperability Using IHE profile in Cloud Computing

Authors(3) :-A. Emima, V. Amala Deepa, M. Amutha Gracy Alexis

Researchers are now focusing in the field of healthcare, since it is a great need to get available information at the correct moment with high accuracy. The cloud computing makes a new revolution of transferring and storing data in the field of medical and health care services. It helps to access information anytime which can be achieved when moving healthcare information to the cloud. This evolution becomes a vital part of all medical and healthcare solutions due to its benefits such as reduced costs of healthcare and increasing accessibility by both patients and its doctors. Though cloud computing is the major concern for both supplicants and healthcare centers like clinics, laboratories, etc. the secure communication becomes a important issue when the data is to be transferred from a patient to the doctor and vice-versa. An Integrated the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) not only enhances the way healthcare systems communicate with one another, but also helps to diagnose the patients and to give an appropriate medical cares. Hence, this paper proposes a new model for Medical and Healthcare Services using IHE profiles that will supports end-to-end security in cloud computing.
