HITOC anticipates member recruitment in fall 2023. Updated application and membership gaps will be posted on this page when recruitment efforts begin. Inquiries regarding membership and recruitment can be sent to HITOC.INFO@odhsoha.oregon.gov
What is HITOC?
HITOC members participate in health system transformation by working towards a vision of health information technology (health IT)-optimized health care, in which robust health IT tools support providers, patients and their families, health systems, communities, Medicaid Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs), health plans, and policymakers. HITOC is responsible for establishing the
strategic plan for health IT for Oregon, making policy recommendations, assessing the health IT landscape, and programmatic oversight. HITOC reports to the Oregon Health Policy Board, and membership is set by the Board.
Who we're looking for:
The Oregon Health Policy Board is committed to ensuring all committees reflect the racial, ethnic, gender, geographic, and disability diversity of Oregonians. We're looking for motivated members with health IT experience and/or interest. HITOC members represent a broad range of organizations that are impacted by Health Information Technology, including consumers, consumer/patient advocates, providers, hospitals, health plans, coordinated care organizations (CCOs), oral health providers, behavioral health providers, and community based organizations. HITOC members represent organizations that use a wide array of health IT tools and systems.
Technology vendors are not eligible to serve on HITOC but may be considered for workgroups or subcommittees.
Details of service:
HITOC meets for three hours every other month virtually (typically 12:30-3:30 pm the first Thursday of even numbered months) and may resume meeting in Portland in 2023. When in-person attendance resumes, members may still participate via phone/webinar. Membership terms are for three years. OHA will reimburse travel costs of HITOC members, if needed, and some members may qualify for compensation.
