Health IT and Health Information Exchange Community and Organizational Panel (HCOP)
The Health IT and Health Information Exchange Community and Organizational Panel (HCOP) is a workgroup formed by the Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC). HCOP's role is to:
- Facilitate communication and coordination among health information exchanges (HIEs), coordinated care organizations (CCOs), and other healthcare organizations
- Identify and share best practices;
- Identify common barriers to HIT and HIE implementation progress; and
- Identify opportunities for collaboration amongst entities implementing and operating HIT and HIE.
- Provide strategic input to HITOC and OHA regarding ongoing HIT and HIE strategy, policy, and implementation efforts
The Panel is comprised of representatives from a variety of organizations across Oregon that are actively engaged in implementing or operating HIT and HIE programs.

Network of Networks Definitions Group
HITOC is developing a set of strategies to connect and coordinate the various exchange efforts in Oregon through an initiative called the Network of Networks. This model envisions collaborative work around establishing common rules of the road, developing requisite technical and legal frameworks, and developing and/or adopting enabling infrastructure to support cross-network exchange. The Network of Networks is a key part of HITOC’s strategy to promote statewide health information exchange (HIE), as described in HITOC’s 2017-2020 Strategic Plan (see pages 29-33).
HITOC chartered a Network of Networks Technical Definitions Group and Advisory Group to begin exploratory work on the Network of Networks concept. The Technical Definitions Group began meeting in late summer 2018. It is advising OHA staff in developing foundational concepts and definitions, informed by Oregon’s HIE environment, to support the Advisory Group’s work. It will also provide ongoing technical advice to the Advisory Group.

Behavioral Health HIT Workgroup
In 2017, the Office of Health Information Technology conducted a Behavioral Health HIT Scan to gain a better understanding of the HIT/HIE landscape among behavioral health organizations, including their adoption and use of electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchange (HIE). In 2018, HITOC chartered the Behavioral Health HIT Workgroup to prioritize the recommendations identified in the Behavioral Health HIT Scan report.
