MediCloud: A Novel Cloud-Based Framework for Healthcare Applications
The healthcare system is increasingly collaborative, where a broad range of healthcare services are provided by many individuals and organizations. The use of computers in healthcare can greatly enhance the quality and effectiveness of health care services while at the same time reduce cost. Disparate computing resources can be integrated and made available to medical practitioners at remote places, hence allowing for information sharing. This will allow patients to attend any hospital or go to any private medical practitioner and his/her health record will be available to the medical practitioner examining him/her.
