Abstract

This study discovers privacy and security problems in using health information application in SNIC. Many countries introduced smart national identity card with various applications such as health information application embedded inside it. The need for avoiding a long queue at hospitals, airports and shopping mall etc. has led to the introduction of smart cards. These smart national identity cards are resulting uncontrollable troubles with confidentiality attack, illegal accessing of database, fraud, planned crime and untrustworthiness of biometric identification. Studies on the general acceptability of the various SNIC’s applications have been conducted but the privacy and security problems in using them have yet to be investigated. Hence, this research investigates the privacy and security problems in using health information application in SNIC and extends better understanding on the relevant factors that the government and the application providers would need to consider in predicting citizens’ technology usage in the future. Survey questionnaires on the privacy and security problems in using health information application were distributed to public and private hospitals. The study discovered that there are privacy and security problems in using health information application in SNIC.
