The Security and Safety of Hospital Information Systems have emerged as a global healthcare challenge. This is because of the progress from the initial independent software applications to a highly interconnected ecosystem of systems with intricate data flow. Data flow not only occurs between medical devices but also flows between the medical devices and the Hospital Information System (HIS). With the introduction of Electronic Medical Records (EMR), the requirement for information sharing has increased for patient care and research. Due to this, HIS managers have to pay special attention to the security and confidentiality of information systems. This talk aims to suggest simple methods that can be utilized to maintain the status of hospital information security in terms of administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in the hospitals.
