General Training Opportunities: 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
Programís 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.
