Effects of Security Policies, Security Awareness of Hospital Employee to Patients' Personal Information Protection


With the development of hospital information systems and digitalization of patient records, the importance of protecting patient information is steadily increasing. In order to develop policies for patient information protection, this study conducted empirical analysis on the effects of security policies, security awareness and employees’ individual characteristics on security effectiveness in local public hospitals. The results indicated that security policies have a significant effect on security awareness and individual characteristics, but have no effect on security effectiveness. Therefore, it is important to establish security policies that can positively affect security effectiveness. This study also suggests additional multilateral research on administrative security factors.
