OHA Seeks Nominations for a State-level Provider Directory Workgroup
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is seeking nominations for a workgroup to provide advice on technical requirements for a state-level provider directory. A provider directory is a resource for provider information including demographics, addresses, affiliations to clinics, etc. Benefits of a state-level provider directory include:
Efficiencies for operations, analytics, oversight, and quality reporting
Support analytics used by health providers and systems, Coordinated Care Organizations (CCO), and health plans that rely on attributing providers to clinics
Enable the exchange of patient health information across different organizations and technologies
Enhance care coordination across disparate providers and around transitions of care by providing easy access to provider information.
Interested? Additional information and the nomination application are available at the Office of Health IT website. Please complete a nomination application and return it to us by January 13, 2014: OHIT.firstname.lastname@example.org.
