Abstract

In the following chapter we are going to discuss the impact that privacy-enhancing technologies can have on today's healthcare market, which is increasingly focused on the provision of (online) Solutions to support the socalled "Continuity of Care". This landscape offers many new opportunities to improve the quality of care, but also poses many new risks with respect to the protection of the individual's identities and privacy. We will first present the new trends in terms of personalized healthcare and "individual's empowerment", focusing in particular on the domain of self care medication regimes, which constitute a relevant portion of the healthcare market and is a good test case to study the interaction between complex real-life processes and privacy-enhancing technologies.
