With the increase in the data breaches and cyber hacks, organizations have come to realize that cyber security alone would not help as the attacks are becoming more sophisticated and complex than ever. E-Healthcare industry has shown a promising improvement in terms of security over the past, but the threat remains. Thus, the E-Healthcare industries are aiming towards a Defense in Depth Strategy approach.

The project here describes how a Defense in Depth Strategy for E-Healthcare system can provide an environment for better security of the data and peer-to-peer interaction with stakeholders. The legacy systems have at some point failed to provide successful results in terms of data accessibility, and storage with changing technologies.

With the proposed model here many of the issues related to modern day healthcare would be solved to make it easier for the related stakeholders. Also, with the health insurance companies as one of the stakeholders in the model makes it even more robust and reliable. One of the most important features of the system being created here is for the people in need of emergency health aid. Thus, making it easier for the patients to avoid the appointments in case of an emergency.
