The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced the national launch of DOQ-IT U (Doctor's Office Quality Information Technology University) to support health information technology (HIT) in physician offices.
According to CMS, DOQ-IT U is an interactive, Web-based tool designed to provide solo and small-to-medium sized physician practices with the education for successful HIT adoption. CMS states that the solution includes lessons on culture change, vendor selection and operational redesign, along with clinical processes.
DOQ-IT U is being developed and managed by the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) program, under contract to CMS.
The nationally available e-learning system is free.
