A Framework for Monitoring Privacy in Mobile Health Apps


Presenter: Anteneh Tefera (Florida A&M University)
Co-author: Hongmei Chi (Florida A&M University)


The paper advances theoretical understanding of fundamental issues related to mobile healthcare analysis, as well as the design and implementation of practical techniques to effectively protect patient privacy. The proposed research is central to preventing privacy breaches for both study participants and regular individuals due to using mHealth apps. A framework for a suite of novel tools and technologies for privacy preserves analysis of patient data, which will help patients and researchers in their endeavour to meet growing expectations in protecting privacy and provide privacy assurance when regular individuals use and share their mhealth data. In addition, a practical case study will be discussed based on the limited base of knowledge in the area of preserving privacy in mobile health data analysis and mining
