Oregon State Information Exchange
Oregon’s state Health Information Exchange (HIE) onboarding program is described at https://www.oregon.gov/oha/HPA/OHIT/Pages/HIE-onboarding.aspx.
Health Information Technology for the state of Oregon is guided by the Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC), a statutory body of Governor-appointed, Senate-confirmed citizens, tasked with setting goals and developing a strategic health information technology plan for the state, as well as monitoring progress in achieving those goals and providing oversight for the implementation of the plan.
The HITOC is currently coordinating Oregon’s public and private statewide efforts in electronic health records adoption and the eventual development of a statewide system for electronic health information exchange. The HITOC will help Oregon meet federal requirements so that providers may be eligible for millions of federal health information technology stimulus dollars.
