Cloud computing is the emerging paradigm that allows the user to access the data using Internet [1]. Growing medical records and difficult data management intends to health department to move toward cloud. The security and privacy are major issues in cloud. The mission-critical applications are limited in cloud though it has numerous small- and medium-sized business applications. We proposed the hybrid cloud-based framework for overall healthcare system with attribute-based encryption with verifiable outsourced decryption for efficient data access and integration of hospitals using community cloud. Secure data transfer and integration of hospital are made possible using hybrid cloud. Our framework overcomes security flaws by achieving data integrity and data confidentiality with secure authentication and authorization. Thus, cloud provides scalable, efficient data access with cost-effective approach.
