Abstract: Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a valuable asset of every healthcare and it needs to be protected. Human errors are recognized as the major information security threats to EHR systems. Employees who interact with EHR systems should be trained about the risks and hazards related to information security. However, there are limited studies regarding the effectiveness of training programs. The aim of this paper is to propose a framework that provides guidelines for healthcare organizations to select an effective information security training delivery method. In addition, this paper proposes a guideline to develop information security content for awareness training programs. Lastly, this study attempts to implement the proposed framework in a selected healthcare for evaluation. Hence, a serious game is developed as a training method to deliver information security content for the selected healthcare. An effective training program raises employees’ awareness toward information security with a long-term impact. It helps to gradually change employees’ behavior over time by reducing their negligence towards secure utilization of healthcare EHR systems.
