E-health applications such as tele-medicine, tele-radiology, tele-ophthalmology, and tele-diagnosis are very promising and
have immense potential to improve global healthcare. They can improve access, equity, and quality through the connection of
healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals, diminishing geographical and physical barriers. One critical issue, however,
is related to the security of data transmission and access to the technologies of medical information. Currently, medical-related
identity theft costs billions of dollars each year and altered medical information can put a person's health at risk through
misdiagnosis, delayed treatment or incorrect prescriptions. Yet, the use of hand-held devices for storing, accessing, and
transmitting medical information is outpacing the privacy and security protections on those devices. Researchers are starting
to develop some imperceptible marks to ensure the tamper-proofing, cost effective, and guaranteed originality of the medical
records. However, the robustness, security and efficient image archiving and retrieval of medical data information against
these cyberattacks is a challenging area for researchers in the field of e-health applications.
Security Solutions for e-Health Applications focuses on cutting-edge academic and industry-related research in this field,
with particular emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches and novel techniques to provide security solutions for smart applications.
The book provides an overview of cutting-edge security techniques and ideas to help graduate students, researchers, as well
as IT professionals who want to understand the opportunities and challenges of using emerging techniques and algorithms for
designing and developing more secure systems and methods for e-health applications.
