HITOC members needed - Nominations being acceptedNov 7, 2016
The Oregon Health Authority is currently seeking nominations for the Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC), the policy, strategy and oversight body for health IT in Oregon. HITOC reports to the Oregon Health Policy Board and consists of broad representation of individuals and organizations that are impacted by the Oregon Health Information Technology Program.
We are looking for motivated leaders to help us tackle important issues. Patients are increasingly using access to health information to participate and engage in their own care. Meanwhile, the field of health IT is evolving rapidly, creating challenges for Oregon health care entities that must make real-world business decisions and investments around health IT. In addition, the Oregon Health Authority is embarking on the next phase of coordinated care delivery, with new opportunities and new challenges to address. HITOC provides a forum to define strategies, remove policy barriers, provide transparency and accountability, and measure progress toward achieving “health IT-optimized health care.”
OHA is seeking nominations for individuals that represent one or more of the following stakeholder groups:  
  • Consumer/patient advocacy;
  • Long-term services and supports;
  • Behavioral or mental health;
  • Health information exchange;
  • Rural/Frontier communities
At this time, we are particularly interested in representatives from outside the Portland area. Download the application: 2016 HITOC Call for Nominations.docx2016 HITOC Call for Nominations.docx
Priority will be given to nominations received by November 15th. Please send the completed nomination form to Sean Carey, HITOC Lead Analyst: sean.m.carey@state.or.us.
