Oregon Web Infrastructure for Treatment Services (OWITS)

Overview

OWITS is designed to meet the growing needs of capturing patient treatment data and satisfy mandatory government reporting requirements for the planning, administration, and monitoring of Behavioral Health Treatment Programs. OWITS is an Electronic Health Records System (EHR) driven by web based software.

The purpose of the EHR is to provide software that facilitates cooperation and collaboration across treatment providers by enabling the sharing of client treatment information (within the constraints of HIPAA and 42CFR regulations).​


System Requirements​

Personal Computer, Internet Connection and Internet Explorer 8 or higher or the equivalent of that in another browser platform.

Cost

There is a shared cost to use the EHR and the staff time for training, agency set up and business transition. The exact cost will be determined later and will not take effect until July 2015. For more information on the requirements of using the EHR, check out the Frequently Asked Questions page (select "OWITS" from the drop-down menu).

Getting Started:

  1. Review the web pages, including posted documents and watch the video "OWITS EHR Tour."
  2. Review Memorandum of Understanding and review the OWITS section of Frequently Asked Questions
  3. Submit Provider Application: (PDF) or (Word)
  4. Review the OWITS System Flow​ document to better understand the flow of the OWITS system and to assist you with determining how OWITS and your current business flow will work together.
  5. Register to use the OWITS Forum​ to see news about upcoming enhancements and bug fixes, to discuss proposed changes, and to share tips and tricks with other OWITS users.
