HITOC member recruitment 2021 - rolling


The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) continues to accept nominations for the Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC). The application may also be used to express interest in potential future workgroups.
Deadline:

The Oregon Health Policy Board (OHBP) approved four new members on May 3, 2022. While all HITOC seats are filled at this time, nominations for future openings are still welcomed. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Application and background information: 
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:

  • Racial, ethnic, and geographic diversity
    • Latino/a/x and Hispanic communities
    • Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities
    • Tribal communities
    • Central and Eastern Oregon
  • Behavioral health (both mental health and substance use disorder treatment)
  • Patient advocacy

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 (12:30-3:30 pm the first Thursday of even numbered months) and may resume meeting in Portland in 2022. 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.
