The clinical records are legal documents under the principle of confidentiality between doctor and patient. This paper corresponds to a practical application of a secure electronic health record (EHR) system in the cloud at the Vega Baja Hospital in San Bartolome in Orihuela (Alicante, Spain) taking in account a series of European Directives, recommendations of the European Council of the protection medical data, safety standards in EHRs, and rules of security for healthcare communication. Here, the case study presents an application implemented completely in the cloud.
