A shift from the doctor-centric model to a patient-centric model is required to face the challenges of the healthcare sector. The vision of patient-centric model can be materialized integrating ubiquitous healthcare and the notion of personalization in services. Cloud computing can be the underlying technology for ubiquitous healthcare. The use of profiles enables the personalization in healthcare services and the use of profile management systems facilitates the deployment of these services. In this paper, we propose a profile management system in ubiquitous healthcare cloud computing environment. The proposed system exploits the cloud computing technology and the smart card technology to increase the efficiency and the quality of the provided healthcare services in the context of the patient-centric model. Furthermore, we propose generic healthcare profile structures corresponding to the main classes of the participating entities in a ubiquitous healthcare cloud computing environment.
