dc.description.abstractPublic hospitals in Garissa are unable to track results related to hospital facilities and disease statistics and these has adversely affected speed, efficiency and utilization of hospital resources. The public hospital costs are too huge, the fees collected are too small and that the public hospitals are heavily dependent on the government. The support provided by the government by allocating funding and using the required equipment has not been reflected in the timely, convenient services provided by electronic data bases to patients, administrators and doctors. Therefore, this study aimed to establish the effect of information security on performance of public Hospitals in the Garissa County, Kenya. Descriptive research design was used. The target population was 2 public hospitals; Garissa provincial general hospital and Garissa county hospital with a total population of 1403 employees. The study’s respondents were 62 information technology specialists working in the two hospitals. Due to a small number, the study was a census. Questionnaires were used to gather primary data. The process of drop and pick later was used. Descriptive and inferential statistics was used to analyze quantitative data. Qualitative data was analysed through the use of content analysis. Information security is an essential part of the healthcare industry for protecting confidential patient information and complying with regulations. As such, better healthcare information security solutions are needed to help reduce the risks of malicious data attacks or technical failure. The study indicates that the information security in the public hospitals in Garissa was alarming. The system enables the hospital gather information about patients, checking quality by comparing perception of services delivered with expected standards was easy and it was possible to communicate safely with the patient electronically.
