A significant weakness within cloud-based systems is often their security. This presentation shows how a health care cloud has been created which preserves the rights of the patient to control access to their captured data, and then how this is used to allow access for consumption within a health care infrastructure. It also shows how data buckets can be created which preserve the data in its original form, and which then allows for virtually any clinical context to be examined.
