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 are especially interested in nominees who can represent:

  • Oral health
  • Social determinants of health (SDOH), including community advocates
  • Health equity
  • Racial, ethnic, and geographic diversity (especially Coastal communities)
  • Consumer/patient advocacy
  • Behavioral health (both mental health and substance use disorder treatment)
  • Informatics, quality improvement, and/or privacy and security
  • Provider organizations and providers of different types
  • Local Public Health agencies
  • CCOs and health plans

Note: 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 (12:30-3:30pm the first Thursdays of even numbered months) and may resume meeting in Portland in late 2021. When in-person attendance resumes, members may still participate via phone/webinar. Membership terms are for 3 years. OHA will reimburse travel costs of HITOC members, if needed.
