Abstract [en]

Usage of mobile applications and wireless networks is growing rapidly at different sectors in the world. Mobile healthcare application is devotedly accepted by the healthcare organizations and also by patients. The reasons behind accepting mobile healthcare applications are as user friendly, reliable, low cost, time efficient, mobility etc. Though the use of mobile applications is rising day by day in the healthcare sectors still those applications are not completely secure to prevent disclosure and misuse of patient’s sensitive data. However, security issues in healthcare applications get attention by many organizations.

In this thesis we have presented an integrated architecture for secure mobile healthcare system. This application provides management of patient medical records in a regional environment. Our mobile application is developed for Android platform. This solution is secure enough, because it fulfills important security requirements: integrity, confidentiality and availability.
