The introduction of policy based management which to manage distributed, complex and numerous systems is widely accepted and used in various sectors. The policy creators create policies that suit best for their operations and management. Since there are numerous of policies, this research focuses on the security policies only which are appointed to the distributed system of health information system. In order to implement the security policies, we need a language that can represent the security policies for distributed health information system completely. From the literature review conducted, there are numerous of security languages have been introduced since two decades ago. Those languages carry their own approaches representing the security policy and some of them do not support the characteristics of distributed system. There is no security language to implement the security policy for distributed health information system. This thesis introduces and initiates a security language to implement security policies in distributed health information system called DiHIS. Adding to that, there are three existing security languages used for discussion and comparison with the proposed DiHIS security language. They are ASL, LaSCO and Ponder. DiHIS security language has shown that it is able to represent the Security Policy Model for Clinical Information System completely compares to those three security languages. This language also has an added value when it covers the Need To Know Policy which other security languages do not. Need To Know Policy is one of the crucial issues in the health sector. DiHIS security language has also been tested with the application domain in health information system. The strength of the language can be seen with the ability of DiHIS to represent the security policies in various connections between various organizations involved in distributed health information system.
