Security plays a vital role in the design and practical deployment of distributed applications. All companies have to repeatedly spend considerable time, capital and effort on the implementation of the security mechanism for their applications, and the result is also unsatisfactory. Nowadays, more and more integrated security management tools are emerging. If we can properly use these tools in our practical applications, the development schedule of applications will be greatly cut down, the cost will be reduced considerably as well as the security of the applications can be guaranteed. In this paper, we investigate an integrated security management tool - ManageSecure, present a formal description of the healthcare system requirements. and then describe how to implement the healthcare system security objectives by means of ManageSecure. The result shows that the use of the integrated security management tool in the practice application is economical and feasible.
