Abstract -
With the wide unfold use of smart phones and the advances in wireless body sensor networks, mobile Healthcare, provides the environment for better health monitoring. This project proposes the mobile health care system for emergency situation. In this, smart phone resources are collected to process the health information of the patient located in the remote place with provision of privacy preserving. In order to provide individual health information and high reliability of health information process and transmission in Mobile Healthcare emergency, an efficient user-centric privacy access control in this framework is introduced, that is based on an attribute-based access control and a new privacy-preserving scalar product computation technique, and allows a medical user to decide who can participate in the opportunistic computing to assist in processing his individual health information data. With security analysis the proposed framework can efficiently achieve user-centric privacy access management in Mobile Healthcare emergency.
