Abstract

The legal developments in healthcare have been driven by the public concern for personal privacy and confidentiality within the context of an increasingly connected world centred on the Internet. The developments in standardisation within e-Healthcare have been influenced by the two key paradigms of patient-centred and managed care that necessitated demands for lowering costs and increasing quality of patient care. The technical challenge of these paradigm shifts is inter-operability for supporting the delivery of care at multiple locations by multiple carers who need to share the patient health record
