The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) in partnership with the National Learning Consortium (NLC) provides a wealth of resources to help Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals in their EHR implementation efforts.  These resources are published on the HealthIT.gov website.

Two new resources have been added under the Assess Your Practice Readiness and Continue Quality Improvement sections. From HealthIT.gov:

Other ONC Resources

You will also find on the site the ONC’s Interoperability Basics Training course. The 75-minute interactive course uses stories, analogies, and practical examples to highlight new vocabulary, content, transport, and services standards introduced in the Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2. This course also introduces the concept of interoperability building blocks and utilizes stories to show concepts in practice.

Finally, the site offers a nifty Cyber Security game for medical practices to test awareness of privacy and security challenges.ONC is embracing gamification as an interactive and innovative approach to education. 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. Check out the security training game.
