Without having strong medical background, it does not represent a novelty the fact that cardiovascular diseases presents an increased impact for the population, while strategic prevention policies at national level are still in early stage, especially in our country. The need for quantification of all factors involved in cardiovascular disease development raises special technical issues, requires the use of performance processing and statistical tools in data analysis. Following these goals, we propose a solution to create a medical data management system that respects confidentiality and security of patient data in a collaborative environment involving different types of users (doctors, patients).
