Abstract

Now-a-days cloud computing is a prominent way of providing resources and services in very secure manner. Gradually more and more organizations, companies and industries are picking up cloud technology for the safe keeping of their data. The objective of this work is to apply cloud service in healthcare system by building a practical patient health record (PHR) application and deploying it in the cloud. The system is ‘doctor-centric’ health record portal where only the doctor or hospital authority is responsible for securing their patients’ health data and this labor-free, paperless system is giving relief to the doctors and hospital authorities from various error-prone traditional health record keeping systems. Jelastic cloud is used to provide cloud service to the developed application which provides security, scalability, quality of service and ease of maintenance of the application. Jelastic cloud also provides load balancing whenever the user load is high. We are developing an interactive PHR application which is dynamically storing, creating, modifying and maintaining data and deploying it in the Jelastic CloudJiffy server by the use of InMotion Hosting server. CloudJiffy is India based fully redundant, high performance and scalable cloud “Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)” under Jelastic Cloud Union. The whole system will be an efficient way for safe keeping Patients’ health records, their medical history and sensitive health information in a pervasive, confidential manner. The system is highly compatible for preserving medical records of eminent persons of our society and for those whose health information must be kept confidential in a highly secure way.
