A SYSTEMATIC LITERATURE REVIEW OF CLOUD COMPUTING IN EHEALTH

    Yan Hu and Guohua Bai Department of Creative Technologies, Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden

    ABSTRACT

    Cloud computing in eHealthis an emerging area for only few years. There needs to identify the state of the art and pinpoint challenges and possible directions for researchers and applications developers. Based on this need, we have conducted a systematic review of cloud computing in eHealth. We searched ACM Digital Library, IEEE Xplore, Inspec, ISI Web of Science and Springer as well as relevant open-access journals for relevant articles. A total of 237 studies were first searched, of which 44 papers met the Include Criteria. The studies identified three types of studied areas about cloud computing in eHealth, namely (1) cloud-based eHealth framework design (n=13);(2) applications of cloud computing (n=17); and (3) security or privacy control mechanisms of healthcare data in the cloud (n=14). Most of the studies in the review were about designs and concept-proof. Only very few studies have evaluated their research in the real world, which may indicate that the application of cloud computing in eHealth is still very immature. However, our presented review could pinpoint that a hybrid cloud platform with mixed access control and security protection mechanisms will be a main research area for developing citizen centred home-based healthcare applications

    ABSTRACT

    Telemedicine is a well-known application where enormous amount of medical data need to be securely transferred over the public network and manipulate effectively. Medical image watermarking is an appropriate method used for enhancing security and authentication of medical data, which is crucial and used for further diagnosis and reference. This project focuses on the study of medical image watermarking methods for protecting and authenticating medical data. Additionally, it covers algorithm for application of water marking technique on Region of Non Interest (RONI) of the medical image preserving Region of Interest (ROI). The medical images can be transferred securely by embedding watermarks in RONI allowing verification of the legitimate changes at the receiving end without affecting ROI. Segmentation plays an important role in medical image processing for separating the ROI from medical image. The proposed system separate the ROI from medical image by GUI based approach, which works for all types of medical images. The experimental results show the satisfactory performance of the system to authenticate the medical images preserving ROI.

    ABSTRACT

    In many countries, the health care sector is entering into a time of unprecedented change. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) has been introduced into healthcare organizations in order to incorporate better use of technology, to aid decision making, and to facilitate the search for medical solution. This needs those professionals in healthcare organizations to be in the process of changing from the use of paper to maintain medical records into computerized medical recordkeeping opportunities. However, the adoption of these electronic medical records systems has been slow throughout the healthcare field. The critical users are physicians which play an important role to success of health information technology including Electronic Medical Record systems. As a result user adoption is necessary in order to understand the benefits of an EMR. Therefore, in the current paper, a model of ranking factors of micro-level in EMRs adoption was developed. Surveys distributed to physicians as this study’s respondent in two private hospitals in Malaysia. The findings indicate that physicians have a high perception means for the technology and showed that EMR would increase physician’s performance regarding to decision making. They have been and continue to be positively motivated to adopt and use the system. The relevant factors according to micro-level perspective prioritized and ranked by using the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS). The aim of ranking and using this approach is to investigate which factors are more important in EMRs adoption from the micro- level perspectives. The results of performing TOPSIS is as a novelty which assist health information systems (HIS) success and also healthcare organizations to motivate their users in accepting of new technology.

    ABSTRACT

    Blood Donation and Blood Transfusion Services (BTS) are crucial for saving people’s lives. Recently, worldwide efforts have been undertaken to utilize social media and smartphone applications to make the blood donation process more convenient, offer additional services, and create communities around blood donation centers. Blood banks suffer frequent shortage of blood;hence, advertisements are frequently seen on social networks urging healthy individuals to donate blood for patients who urgently require blood transfusion. The blood donation processusuallyconsumesa lot of time and effort from both donors and medical staff since there is no concrete information system that allows donorsand blood donation centers communicate efficiently and coordinate with each other tominimize time and effort required for blood donation process. Moreover, most blood banks work in isolation and are not integrated with other blood donation centers and health organizations which affect the blood donation and blood transfusion services’ quality. This work aims at developing a Blood Donation System (BDS) based on the cutting-edge information technologies of cloud computing and mobile computing. The proposedsystem facilitates communication between blood donorsand blood donation centers and integrates the blood information dispersed among different blood donation centers and health organizations acrossa country.Stakeholders will be able to use the BDS as an application installed on their smartphones to help them complete the blood donation process with minimal effort and time. Thisapplication helps people receive notifications on urgent blood donation calls, know their eligibility to give blood, search for the nearest blood center, and reserve a convenient appointment using temporal and/or spatial information. It also helps establish a blood donation community through social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

MHEALTH APPLICATIONS DEVELOPED BY THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH FOR PUBLIC USERS INKSA: A PERSUASIVE SYSTEMS DESIGN EVALUATION

    Asmaa Shati Department of Information Systems, IMSIU University, Riyadh, KSA Department of Information Systems, KKU University, Abha, KSA

    ABSTRACT

    Health applications have shown promise in supporting the delivery of health services in peoples’ daily life. Recently, the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (MOH) has launched several mHealth applications to develop work mechanisms. Our study aimed to identify and understand the design of mHealth apps by classifying their persuasive features using the Persuasive Systems Design (PSD) model and expert evaluation method. This paper presents the distinct persuasive features applied in recent applications launched by MOH for public users called “Sehha & Mawid” Apps. The results revealed the extensive use of persuasive features; particularly features related to credibility support, dialogue support and primary task support respectively. The implementation and design of social support features were found to be poor; this could be due to the nature of the apps or lack of knowledge from the developers’ perspectives. The findings suggest some features that may improve the persuasion for the evaluated apps.

    KEYWORDS

    Persuasion, mHealth apps, The persuasive systems design model (PSD), MOH, Persuasive features.
