The use of new technologies in healthcare sector is growing and, as a consequence, the security problems using these technologies are increasing. So a communication protocol based on Hippocratic principles and its standardization was proposed to increase data security when these technologies were used. To evaluate this proposal from a practical point of view, a system based on an application for mobile terminals with the Android operating system and WiFi, as the connection platform to exchange medical records between health personnel and information database of a medical center, was developed. For this system it was assumed that the patient controls the relationship between doctors and patient and this relationship needs to be established personally, using a terminal with NFC technology, but may be dissolved by the patient remotely, without interaction with the doctor. Some operative problems were found but the conclusion is that this is a viable solution and that applying the Hippocratic principles is possible to have two levels of security, being the more secure the use of the Hippocratic protocol.
