While e-health sounds as a promising future for healthcare and medicine, it still is far from being integrated into our day-to-day lives. While interoperability and data link reliability are important issues that need to be addressed, designing successful security and privacy approaches can prove to be the first stepping stone in integrating wireless communication techniques with e-health applications. Approaches such as trust negotiations can help build the trust of customers in e-health applications by providing secure access to their Electronic Health Records (EHR). On the other hand, approaches like Information Accountability (IA) can ensure the privacy of the customers. This paper will review data security and privacy approaches that can enable successful integration of wireless communication with e-health applications.
