We present a cloud-based healthcare system that integrates a formal care system (DACAR) with an informal care system (Microsoft Health Vault). The system provides high levels of security and privacy within a cloud environment, enabling sharing of both health records and the access rights, along the patient pathway. We also define a case study that can help in evaluating and in demonstrating the usefulness of a cloud-based integrated health care system.
