Abstract (Summary)
Since information technology has become the main carrier of information in healthcare service, we can see how these organizations now face a number of new threats. The treaths against information support can be either internal or external. An internal threat can for example be lack of security thinkning, whereas external threats can be power failures.The essay is a survey over and an inventory of backup procedures and routines in the county council of Kronoberg, Sweden.Data was obtained by sending out a questionnaire via county council intranet. 200 users of the EHR in the county council were selected; 50 physicians, 50 nurses, 50 assistant nurses and 50 medical secretaries. A total of 100 persons answered the questionnaire (i.e. a response rate of 50 %).To sum up our result of the survey, we can make the following statements:• all of the respondents think that backup procedures and routines are important for the organization• relatively many are ignorant about the existence of backup routines and procedures• a serious conclusion of the survey, is that many respondents regards that documentation is done incorrectly from the backup procedures in to EHR after an incident or system failure (EHR)• the majority of the units management staff/management teams at the micro system level has not revised the backup routines on a regular basis.
