A Platform for Electronic Health Record Sharing in Environments with Scarce Resource Using Cloud Computing

Muhamad Fitra Kacamarga, Arif Budiarto, Bens Pardamean


One of the main objectives of Electronic Health Record (EHR) is the transferability of patient data from one location to another. Many locations with scarce resources, particularly unreliable internet connectivity, face difficulties in accessing and sharing EHR data. This article presents our proposed design that utilizes Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a sharing mechanism platform among distributed healthcare organizations found in an environment with scarce resources. We proposed the use of database replication mechanism and REST (Representational State Transfer) web service to perform information exchange among health organizations and public health information systems.
