The opening of the “Threat Modeling Manifesto” [1] provides a succinct definition of threat modeling and why it has become a recognized cybersecurity best practice: Threat modeling is analyzing representations of a system to highlight concerns about security and privacy characteristics. At the highest levels, when we threat model, we ask four key questions: • What are we working on? • What can go wrong? • What are we going to do about it? • Did we do a good enough job? When you perform threat modeling, you begin to recognize what can go wrong in a system. It also allows you to pinpoint design and implementation issues that require mitigation, whether it is early in or throughout the lifetime of the system. The output of the threat model, which are known as threats, informs decisions that you might make in subsequent design, development, testing, and postdeployment phases.

Providing primary healthcare services to its citizens is government’s responsibility, and only a seamless integration of facilities between healthcare service providers can deliver this better. Clinical Information System (CIS) is a core/key component of any e-Health model. This paper portrays the Oacis Programme as a state of the art implementation by the South Australian Department of Human Services (DHS). The Open Architecture Clinical Information System (OACIS) and its particular relation to HealthConnect, the Health Information Network for all Australians, and. vOACISTM, the EHR solution from DINMAR (Canada), have also been highlighed.

Broad technological advancements have contributed to the Internet of Things (IoT)phenomenon, where physical devices now have technology that allow them to connect to theinternet and communicate with other devices or systems. With billions of devices beingconnected to the internet, many industries, including healthcare, have leveraged, or arebeginning to leverage, IoT devices to improve operational efficiency and enhance innovation.
