Background: Health information is highly sensitive to all kinds of health care environments ranging from organization-based to personalized health. Nowadays, health information is exchanged readily for the consequence of the introduction of ubiquitous computing in healthcare industry. Therefore, minimization of vulnerabilities and security risks are a must. Information privacy is a critical issue in all kinds of health information systems with some platforms (e.g. implementable medical devices, mobile-based apps, biosensors, smart home, etc.).Objective: This paper was aimed at providing a snapshot of existing frameworks protecting health information privacy in pervasive health care environments.Methods: Accordingly, terms such as â€œpervasive health careâ€, â€œmobile healthâ€, â€œubiquitous healthâ€, â€œhealth informationâ€ and â€œprivacyâ€ were searched in technical databases and on the Internet search engines using free text both in English and Persian (February 2015).Â Results: In summary, these frameworks have characteristics as managing data access, data collection, use and disclosure in common.Conclusion: Taken together, these frameworks would be applied in emerging health environments and associated frameworks addressing information privacy.
