Accountable Health Care Service Provisioning in the Cloud

Cloud computing has received a great deal of attention during the past few years. However, processing data remotely in unknown systems creates a number of challenges related to data privacy and security, which may hinder the adoption of cloud technology in, for example, the health care domain. This paper presents results from the ongoing EU FP7 research project, which aims to provide mechanism and tools to enable organisations involved in cloud service delivery chains to act as responsible stewards for the personal data that they process. We outline a number of accountability obligations that will arise in a health care scenario and explain how the project results can be used to meet these challenges.
