Transformation Support

If you’re considering a health IT transformation for your practice, you’ll need technical help. You’ll find it at the Practice Transformation Support for Clinicians website. This invaluable tool provides a state-by-state listing of federally funded technical assistance to support clinicians in various transformation activities — including resources for the following programs:

  • Advance Interoperable Health Information Technology Services to Support Health Information Exchange
  • Community-based Care Transitions Program
  • EvidenceNOW
  • Health IT Regional Extension Centers Program
  • Hospital Engagement Network
  • Quality Improvement Organization/Quality Improvement Network
  • Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative

The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) offers free nationwide training for all health care workers through its Workforce Development Program.

ONC grantees will update existing — and create new — health IT training materials to incorporate modern care-delivery processes and emerging health IT trends. Updated material focuses on 5 areas:

  • Population health
  • Care coordination
  • Value-based payment and new care delivery models
  • Health care data analytics
  • Patient-centered care

Through the program, approximately 6,000 health care workers have been trained to use new health information technologies in a variety of settings including:

  • Team-based care environment
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Patient-centered medical homes
  • Accountable care organizations
  • Hospitals and clinics

Free nationwide health IT training is open for registration.
