Unless a different approach is used, the reliance on cryptography and password or escrow-based systems for key management will impede trust of the electronic health records (EHR) system and hence its acceptability. In addition, users with the right access should also be monitored without affecting the clinician workflow. This paper presents a detailed review of some selected recent approaches to ensuring security, privacy, and accountability in EHR and identifies gaps for future research.
