In this paper, we propose a new software system that employs features that help the organization to comply with USA HIPAA regulations. The system uses SMS as the primary way of communication to transfer information. Lack of knowledge about some diseases is still a major reason for some harmful diseases spreading. The developed system includes different features that may help to communicate amongst low income people who don’t even have access to the internet. Since the software system deals with Personal Health Information (PHI) it is equipped with an access control authentication system mechanism to protect privacy. The system is analyzed for performance to identify how much overhead the privacy rules impose.
Cellular telephony has become a bright example of co-evolution of human society and information technology. This
trend has also been reflected in health care and health promotion projects which included cell phones in data collection
and communication chain. While many successful projects have been realized, the review of phone-based data collection
techniques reveals that the existing technologies do not completely address health promotion research needs. The paper
presents approaches which close this gap by extending existing versatile platforms. The messaging systems are designed
for a health-promotion research to prevent obesity and
obesity-related health disparities among low-income Latino
adolescent girls. Messaging and polling mechanisms are used to communicate and automatically process response data
for the target constituency. Preliminary survey data provide an insight on phone availability and technology perception
for the study group.
