Cloud Computing Support for Enhanced Health Applications
Mobile devices are being considered as service platforms for mobile health information delivery, access and communication. However mobiles face challenges with regard to delivering secure multimedia based health services due to limitations in computation and power supply. Since mobile devices have limited computational capacity and run on small batteries; they are unable to run heavy multimedia & security algorithms. Cloud Computing provides functionality for managing information data in a distributed, ubiquitous and pervasive manner supporting several platforms, systems and applications. This paper presents the implementation of a system that enables electronic healthcare data storage, update and retrieval using Cloud Computing.
