Healthcare system providing cloud-based storage has the potential to store the patient’s therapeutic records to the remote server than maintaining the files and radiological images on a hard drive or local storage device that enables the patient to access their medical records at any place by using the Internet through a Web-based application. The structure of cloud application guarantees the privacy and security of health-related data to preserve the sensitive health information. The architectural design of cloud computing aims to alleviate the privacy concern and to fulfill the confidence and trust of the cloud-based healthcare organization. The requirements, architecture design, software components, and validation methods of cloud-based healthcare system are discussed.
