Abstract

Digital technologies have dramatically transformed our daily lives by bringing countless conveniences and benefits. As an evolving concept, electronic health information has become the focus of attention in both academia and industry. By leveraging modern digital technologies like the internet and the cloud, electronic health information systems will be a key enabling technology in improving the quality and convenience of patient care, encouraging patient participation in their care, reducing medical errors, improving practice efficiencies, and saving time and cost. The complexity of electronic health information systems, however, raises several new security and privacy issues. It is thus critical to investigate and develop security and privacy mechanisms able to mitigate the emerging adversarial activities and meet specific requirements of electronic health information systems.
