Abstract

We introduce e-Post Office Box system which renders individuals their personal information management and safe access through the Internet to share and utilize their personal information under their own control. We have developed a personal health information management system based on the e-P.O.Box conception. All the personal information dealt in the system is securely protected in the network complying with the government guidelines for safety management of medical information systems. The system is connected with medical institutions using on-demand VPN and, the access to it is securely guarded by the use of IC card. We conducted a field experiment for the evaluation of the developed system with the staffs of Tokyo Institute of Technology and doctors in a hospital, simulating the cases of clinical consultation of patients with some adult disease. The experiment confirmed the effectiveness of the system for the patients.
