Abstract

Cloud Computing is becoming the most famous buzz term in the IT world. It is causing a high level of expectation for Quality Of Life improvements that may derive from its wide usage on more human activities. In the near future, also IT in the healthcare scenarios should deal with Cloud Computing. However for hospitals, medical centers, healthcare assistance structures it is not easy at all to deploy all services on cloud due to the Security and Private constrains. Looking at eorts recently pursued from World Wide IT standardization boards, a markable convergence on cloud standards is noticed, thus for encouraging the cloud adoptions in many elds. We strongly believe even the healthcare contexts might benet of clouds. This paper represents the description of a rst approach of Cloud Resources utilization in the context of e-Health management. In particular a real use case is described where to provide basic solutions easily applicable in more similar scenarios
