Authors:  Amer Al-Badarneh, Hassan Najadat, Enas Essa

Securing and protecting electronic medical records (EMR) stored in a cloud is one of the most critical issues in e-health systems. Many approaches with different security objectives have been developed to adapt this important issue. This paper proposes a new approach for securing and protecting electronic health records against unauthenticated access with allowing different hospitals, health centres and pharmacies access the system, by implementing role-based access control approach that could be applied smoothly in cloud e-health systems.
