AbstractThe security vulnerabilities of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems are unique due to their interoperable nature and their specific methods of use and storage. A critical review was undertaken of existing and generalized maturity models, addressing cyber and information security scenarios in the healthcare sector. The study investigated how hospitals address their EHR system security via a survey that was distributed to private hospitals in Amman, Jordan. As a result of the study of maturity models that target cybersecurity, information security, healthcare, and big data, it was found that maturity models in the healthcare sector do not provide tools for determining maturity for characteristics and processes specific to hospitals. A Design Science Research Methodology was adopted as a reliable and robust mechanism to develop an EHR maturity model (EHR-MM) for hospitals, to assess the security of the EHR specifically and effectively in their organizations. A case study was used for evaluation, employing a template that addresses the effectiveness of the maturity models through domain expert reviews, providing positive results for the proposed approach.
