Special Issue On: Emerging Technologies for Security and Authentication of Electronic Health Record (EHR): Opportunities and Challenges

The exponential growth of the internet and networked infrastructure has resulted in electronics creeping into every important sphere like banking, governance, commerce and healthcare etc., giving rise to e- banking, e- governance, e-commerce and e-healthcare. Electronic-healthcare is nowadays taking lead in healthcare related activities and is rapidly changing the dynamics of conventional paper based healthcare and making the distance between a patient and doctor immaterial. However, successful implementation of an e-healthcare system is accompanied by a number of challenges which include privacy and content authentication of Electronic Health Record (EHR) / Electronic Medical Record (EMR). Though existing e-healthcare service providers claim that the patients can only access their electronic records, healthcare professionals and system/database operators may happen to access the patients’ electronic health record information. However the claim has proved to be hoax in presence of current day technology and computation power. The conventional methods for preserving the privacy of healthcare systems entirely trust the system operators. Therefore, the health related information (EHR) is vulnerable to be exploited by even the authorized personnel in an immoral/unethical way. Of late chaotic cryptography and information hiding is being used as potential technological tools for taking care of the mentioned issues. This special issue is an endeavor in the direction to gather state of art work in the area for benefit of the research community working in the area in particular and the common masses in general.

The aim of this special issue is to nurture novel and transformative and approaches that ensure the authentication and security of EHR taking into consideration the challenges of duplication and replication in present multimedia age. This special issue also aims to nurture a research community committed to advancing research and education at the confluence of electronic patient data privacy, security and authentication.
