The security of patient’s data is the most overbearing barrier to access when considering the adoption of Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) in the healthcare industry. Recently, several studies were conducted to address security risks, and a series of solutions were proposed to enable data and privacy protection. In this paper we conduct the systematic mapping review to know more about security aspects in HIS. Our study provides a comprehensive review of the literature on the evaluation and implementation of HIS security, detailing the challenges and recommendations for implementers and adopters alike. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the security perspective and some of the important concerns that need to be considered to successfully use information systems in healthcare.
