The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has some great resources to help healthcare organizations ensure privacy and security of health information.
Privacy & Security Training Games
ONC has a very good privacy and security training game. The game gives real life scenarios and has the player make privacy and security decisions based on the information given to them.
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s (ONC) Office of the Chief Privacy Officer (OCPO) has released its first web-based security training module, CyberSecure: Your Medical Practice.
The security training module, which was developed with the assistance of the Regional Extension Center Program’s Privacy and Security Community of Practice, uses a game format that requires users to respond to privacy and security challenges often faced in a typical small medical practice. Users choosing the right response earn points and see their virtual medical practices flourish. But users making the wrong security decisions can hurt their virtual practices.
The use of gamification by ONC is an innovative approach aimed at educating health care providers to make more informed decisions regarding privacy and security of health information.
