Abstract

Security is a major issue within the health domain. It is important to ensure that sensitive personalised data is protected from misuse. However, there is also a need for efficient medical systems that don’t impede clinicians work practices. This paper will briefly detail some of the authentication issues that have been highlighted within two comparative hospital studies in the health domain. 93 clinicians’ perceptions towards clinical information resources were analysed whereby security and authentication issues were highlighted as a critical issue. This paper details how those issues related to organisational structures and discusses how authentication and security must be designed around communities of practice.
