Étude descriptive de la maîtrise des médecins généralistes libéraux quant à la sécurité des données personnelles de santé de leurs patients, à l’Île de la Réunion en 2019

Abstract : Objective: Describe the general practitioners’ management regarding their patients' personal health data (PHD) security. Method: Declarative stud conducted between May and September 2019. Study population included private general practitioners (GP) settled in Reunion Island. Survey was anonymous, made according to CNIL and sent by the Regional Private Practitioners Union’s (URML) newsletter. Descriptive statistical analysis was performed with a confidence level of 95 %. Results and Discussion: On 757 GPs included, 49 answered the survey. 95.9 % IC[84.4-99] were computerized. On the one hand, the results mainly suggested a good management regarding the use of non-obsolete and updated software, and the use of an antivirus (74.5 % IC[59.6-85.2]). At least one backup per week was made (82.9 %). On the other hand, PHD’s management was improvable regarding password strength, the use of a Health Secure Messaging (HSM) (46.9 % IC[30.1-64.4]) and regarding PHD de-identification (5.9 % IC[0.8-33.7]). Main barrier was the lack of technical knowledge (70.2 %). Main bias is the small sample size. Conclusion: GP’s management regarding their patients’ PHD could be improved, probably by subcontracting a computer specialist, raising GP’s awareness regarding passwords and PHD de-identification, securely designing healthcare applications, generalizing the use of HSM and continue discussions about digital in general.
