Security and privacy issues in healthcare data management play a fundamental role in the widespread adoption of medical information systems. As a consequence, it is very important to define the right means for expressing and managing policies in order to comply with privacy-related standards and regulations. In this work, we extend an open source hospital information system in order to provide support for expressing and enforcing privacy-related policies, using as a starting point a conceptual model the authors developed in a previous work.
