The need for an interconnected health network has reached its peak. Using electronic health records dramatically increases the quality of care for patients and the efficiency of the health care systems. With the rapid development and integration of health care technology, standardization and interoperability has become a paramount problem. Looking at electronic health systems independently presents an array of security related issues, which are then compounded as they are connected together. This paper focuses the issues surrounding authorized access systems used within these networks and solutions to bridge the gap that currently exists.
