The security and privacy of patient information is one of the biggest hindrances to the wide adoption of eHealth systems. For eHealth systems to be successful they must provide protection for patients’ privacy while ensuring healthcare professionals are able to access the information necessary to provide appropriate care. Accountable-eHealth systems are a proposed solution to these potentially competing concerns by enforcing appropriate use and after-the-fact accountability measures. We have developed a Web-based prototype to demonstrate scenarios of how both appropriate and inappropriate use of patient information would be handled in an Accountable-eHealth system.

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.
