Vinayak K B,  H R Shashidhar
Electronic Health Records (EHR) is the medical records use to maintain by the hospitals electronically instead of paper. Generally Hospitals document, manage and update the status of patients admitted. As the patient’s records are very sensitive, in order to provide a security a proper security method should be followed by the hospital authorities. At the same time, Chain of hospitals uses to share electronic health records with other hospitals. While sharing, there might be chances of record alteration and hackers attack. In our paper we propose an health care centric framework and suite of mechanisms for data access control of electronic health record stored in server. To achieve a secured data access control, Multi Authority Attribute based Encryption is used where it provides security for attributes (such as patients, doctor, research and scholar) of a EHRs and it allows patients and doctor to manage EHR and to share the records with other hospitals.
