Games in health are often used to educate patients or promote healthy lifestyles. Now games are being used to educate physicians and medical office staff as well. As more practices adopt electronic health records, patient privacy and data security have become bigger challenges. Smaller practices particularly face challenges in complying with HIPAA standards while coping with fewer resources available for training. Now, a new game developed by the Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology is helping teach health care employees best practices for protecting medical data.
