Abstract
As a consequence of the epidemiological transition towards non-communicable diseases, integrated care approaches are required,
not solely focused on medical purposes, but also on a range of essential activities for the maintenance of the individuals’ quality
of life. In order to allow the exchange of information, these integrated approaches might be supported by digital platforms, which
need to provide trustful environments and to guarantee the integrity of the information exchanged. Therefore, together with
mechanisms such as authentication, logging or auditing, the definition of access control policies assumes a paramount importance. This article focuses on the development of a parser as a component of a platform to support the care of communitydwelling older adults, the SOCIAL platform, to allow the definition of access control policies and rules using natural languages.
