Recently, both security and privacy are the growing concerns in eHealth platforms that deal with sensitive clinical data stored in electronic health records (EHR). Breaches or damage of sensitive data of an individual’s health record can be occurred due to attacks by hackers or malicious insiders. Therefore, it is very crucial to enforce privacy and security of clinical data in eHealth applications by technological means. Understanding and finding the issues related to the security and privacy of eHealth systems are important in designing and developing an effective eHealth system. In this paper, we therefore aim to investigate and analyze the recent security issues in eHealth applications and explore their solutions to preserve privacy and security of sensitive health data.
