When providing critical emergency care in a remote location, a local response team needs access to the patient’s healthcare data. Such healthcare data is protected by privacy rules and laws in most jurisdictions. It is therefore a challenge to be able to provide the response team with the relevant data while protecting the privacy of that data. In this paper, we present a system designed to enhance privacy protection of sensitive data downloaded to a mobile client device from a remote server, such as in the case of accessing medical information in emergency situations.
