The objective of the proposed research is to answer the question of how to provide verification and redactability to medical documents at a manageable computation cost to all parties involved. The approach for this solution examines the use of Merkle Hash Trees to provide the redaction and verification characteristics required. Using the Merkle Hash Tree, various Continuity of Care Documents will have their various elements extracted for storage in the signature scheme. An analysis of the approach and the various characteristics that made this approach a likely candidate for success are provided within. A description of a framework implementation and a sample application are provided to demonstrate potential uses of the system. Finally, results seen from various experiments with the framework are included to provide concrete evidence of a solution to the question which was the focus of this research.
