We present a cloud-based healthcare system that
integrates a formal care system (DACAR) with an informal
care system (Microsoft HealthVault). The system provides high levels of security and privacy within a cloud environment,
enabling sharing of both health records and the access rights,
along the patient pathway. We also define a case study that can help in evaluating and in demonstrating the usefulness of a cloud-based integrated health care system
