Abstract: Cloud computing focuses on utility of virtualised network with infrastructure and application services through data centres. Currently, maintenance of patient's medical records and reports are through centralised system without sharing facility with other health centres. There is no freedom to the patients to obtain their medical information like treatment reports, discharge summary, etc., via mobile devices. A model proposed in our work where the medical information and reports will be stored in an ecosystem with synchronisation, so that they can be shared through different healthcare clouds and can be accessible to the patients' mobile devices. Randomised alphanumeric cipher (RAC) algorithm used to enhance security for keeping medical reports of patients in cloud with availability and interoperability.
