Designing an information accountability framework for eHealth

Gajanayake, Randike, Sahama, Tony R., Lane, Bill, & Grunwell, Daniel (2013) Designing an information accountability framework for eHealth. In IEEE Healthcom 2013 15th International Conference on E-Health Networking, Application & Services, 9-12 October 2013, Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas – Technical University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal.


This tutorial is primarily based on the IEEE eHealth technical committee Newsletter published in March 2013. Its main focus is on information privacy management in eHealth through information accountability. The tutorial consists of three main aspects of a proposed information accountability framework for eHealth, namely, social aspects, technical aspects and legal aspects. Following a brief introduction of the problem domain and context, we present the tutorial in these three main components. The length of the tutorial is intended to be half a day.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
