Appendix B: Implementation of a Hospital Scenario as a Demonstration Example

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1958)


In Chapter 5.6, we outlined how the privacy model could be used to protect personal patient data in a hospital information system. We have used the GFA- Cimplementation of the privacy model to implement an imaginary hospital scenario. Though the scenario is quite simplified and only describes a part of personal data processing in a hospital environment, it demonstrates how the privacy model can be applied. Particularly, it shows how a privacy policy for hospital environments similar as defined by [Seelos 1991] could be enforced by the privacy model.
