Abstract: In this paper we present a policy-based framework for the specification and enforcement of policies for e-Health applications. In the framework, authorisation policies are used to express the rights that entities have in the system, while obligation policies are used to define event-condition-action rules as well as the responsibilities that carers and patients have in the system. We show how to the approach can be used for Edema treatment and how fine-grained authorisation and obligation policies are expressed. Authorisation will often depend on the context in which patient care takes place, and our policies support predicates that reflect the environment.
