======= DOI: 10.22937/IJCSNS.2020.20.08.1 ======= This paper explores methods through which secret information is encrypted then and hided so as to increase the level of security in medical health data from being hacked[19]. This is done through combining two method Elliptic curve cryptography and image steganography. On first stage, text would be encrypted through using ECC. On second stage, steganography would be used so as to conceal the text inside an image [2, 24]. Selecting ECC, which is an algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite fields, is considered as being a desired choice for being public key [12] [16]. Furthermore, it can be used in many type of media they use it in medical record system and in field such as CT scan, and MRI scan [1]. Selecting Image Steganography, which is a technique that helps many organizations, institutions to hide the encrypted information, obscures privacy information from a person which is not authorized to get the access of that of it. The technique can be used by any person, group of persons or organization to hide and protect their important business information or nation’s secrets, or laboratory secrets or the important defines information.
