Data Access Control of Personal Health Records using Cryptography

Authors(2) :-Divya G C, Anupashree C A

The goal of real health care reform must be high quality, universal coverage in cost effective way. Personal Health Record (PHR) systems plays prerequisite act in digital transformation of healthcare.PHR health systems turn out many over and above features like scrutinize one s health related information ,secure transmission and traverse the same data with health care providers. A cloud facilitated PHR systems bloats the contingency for PHR systems to co relate with our systems in health information executive system environments. An individual human being who is enduring a disorder needs to inscribe (encrypt) his/her data before transmitting it in cloud since the patients will lose their physical access to their health data accumulated in cloud servers.The callout assert here is to procure fine grained data ingresss control onm encrypted PHR data in an effectual and ascendable manner. In PHR Systems there are multifarious owners or patients & extant data connection & access control tactics are designed for sinle-authority /owner .The proposed scheme derives flexibility ,scalablity & fin grined patient centic data acces limitation scheme called revovable multi authority attribute set based encryption.(R-MA-ASBE)
