In the prevailing healthcare industry requirements, the demand of electronic medical record (EMR) has been increased to provide better healthcare to patients and provide convenient access to EMR. Healthcare providers are keen to move EMR's to the cloud. Cloud computing paradigm is giving insight to shared environment for EMR, however it brings a lot of challenges like security, privacy of medical data along with its advantages. Our designed system provides appropriate management of oncology patient records and provides privacy to patient textual and DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) image information by anonymizing them. We have identified PDATA (Personal Data) and CDATA (Clinical Data) from the DICOM images retrieved from PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) server. The role based policies are been implemented and are stored in the database, which are used for the anonymization of PDATA.
