Abstract [en]

Accessibility to the right patient information at the right time is a necessity in order to provide the best possible care for a patient. This is a complex undertaking, in particular since healthcare more and more is characterized by diversity, distributed care givers, and extended use of IT. Patient information is sensitive, and must be handled correctly and safely in this setting. This paper takes a national perspective and investigates problems and needs concerning information security in a highly distributed healthcare domain. A small field study of five interviews was conducted to collect data. Results show that problems exist primarily in administrative security, but also that the balance between patient privacy and patient safety is difficult to maintain. Needed security measures are pointed out, and the need for a holistic view is highlighted.
