The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the Health Resources and Services Administration at HHS have produced a video game for training healthcare professionals and staff about their privacy and security responsibilities.

The game will be accessible free of charge online Wednesday at the ONC website, said Laura Rosas, privacy and security professional in the ONC's Office of the Chief Privacy Officer.

“What we really tried to address is the baseline of security, geared for practices that have not used health information technology before,” Rosas said during a demonstration of game as part of the National Health IT Week activities under way in Washington.
