Posted by Janelle Pauli on Jan 18, 2016 10:15:00 AM

We recently wrote a two part blog series about 10 things your practice should know about optometry software risk assessment. During our research we found a great tool offered by HealthIT.gov. The ONC and HealthIT.gov recognize that conducting a risk assessment can be a challening job for any practice, so they created this tool to assist professionals as they perform risk assessments of their practice.
