Personal e-health systems are the next generation of e-health applications and their goal is to assist patientsin managing their disease and to help both patients and healthy people maintain behaviours that promote health.

This paper presents an analysis of personal e-health systems and identifies privacy issues as a first step towards a ‘privacy by design’ methodology and practical guidelines.
