Abstract: Telemedicine is a healthcare system where healthcare professionals have the capability to observe, diagnose, evaluate and treat the patient from a remote location and the patient have the ability to easily access the medical expertise quickly and efficiently. Increasing popularity of Telemedicine increase the security intimidations. In this paper, a security framework is implemented for the developed cost-effective Telemedicine system. The proposed security framework secure all the sections of the model following the recommendations of Health Level 7, First Healthcare Interoperability Resources and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Implementation of this security framework including authenticating the different types of user, secure connection between mobile and sensors through authentication, protect the mobile application from hackers, ensures data security through encryption, as well as secure server, using secured socket layer called SSL. Finally, we can say that the developed Telemedicine model is more secure and it can be implemented in any remote areas of developing countries as like as Bangladesh.
