The Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC) is 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.
The HITOC builds on the past work of the Health Information Infrastructure Advisory Committee (HIIAC) and the Health Information Security & Privacy Collaborative (HISPC).
