An increasing number of extramural applications in the personal healthcare domain pose new challenges regarding the security of medical data. In this paper, we focus on remote patient monitoring systems and the issues around information reliability. In these systems medical data is not collected by healthcare providers in a controlled medical environment using certified medical devices, but by patients at their homes without any supervision. Therefore, the healthcare professionals will need to place greater trust in information that patients report. To address this issue, we propose several approaches that minimize the risks and ensure high information reliability.
