Information Technology is being used in many ways to improve the quality and effectiveness of healthcare. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a medical record system that is computerized and delivers care in an institution, such as a physician's office or a hospital. EMR tends to be a part of a local stand-alone health information system that allows storage, retrieval, and modification of records. Electronic Medical Records are critical, highly sensitive, and private information in healthcare; these records are frequently shared among health care providers. There are concerns and questions about the security and privacy of their health information on the EMR among all the stakeholders in healthcare - any person or party who provides, receives, manages or pays for healthcare. It is essential to ensure the security and privacy of Electronic Medical Records and protect them from cyberattack.
