Provide Input

Opportunities for feedback and input

HITOC wants to hear your input! The Council looks forward to your thoughts about where health IT is working well and where Oregon needs to change course. There are several ways to share your input, and we expect to add more opportunities in 2022.

Join a Workgroup

HITOC may decide to create one or more workgroups to support the strategic plan. Workgroups will have one or two HITOC members who will serve as liaisons, and approximately 10-15 other people who can represent different perspectives and provide their unique experience and voice to inform the Strategic Plan recommendations. As workgroups to support the Strategic Plan are identified, they will be posted on this page.


CIE Workgroup

At its August 2021 meeting, HITOC identified the need for a Community Information Exchange (CIE) workgroup and approved the draft charter at the October 2021 meeting. OHA will send out a call for CIE workgroup nominations in the coming weeks. The workgroup is expected to begin in January 2022. It will provide CIE strategy recommendations to HITOC and OHA. Recommendations should reflect perspectives from all interested parties and partners, with an emphasis on community and those organizations on the forefront of providing services to communities who face health inequities. More information about CIE can be found in in the CIE issue brief

The call for nominations for workgroup members will be open until November 17. 


Interviews, focus groups, and listening sessions

To get input from a variety of audiences on their health IT experiences, HITOC and OHA will hold interviews, focus groups, and listening sessions as needed.

     HIE Interviews

In Fall 2021, OHA and HIT Commons will conduct informal interviews to understand the current state of health information exchange (HIE), as well as challenges and opportunities. HITOC will hear interview findings at the December 2021 meeting and use the findings to determine next steps. If you are interested in participating in these interviews or want to provide written feedback, please email hitoc.info@dhsoha.state.or.us.


Public Comments

Comment to HITOC can be provided in two ways:

  1. Speak during a HITOC meeting during the public comment period: Let us know that you'd like to speak by emailing us at hitoc.info@dhsoha.state.or.us or call/text (503)373-7859 by 9 am on the day of the meeting. Please note public comment is limited to 2 minutes per person and it is subject to time availability.
  2. Written comments may be submitted by e-mail to: HITOC.info@dhsoha.state.or.us. Feedback does not need to be on formal letterhead, and please remember that all feedback is available to the public.

Written comment can be sent in at any time. Comment intended to be provided to HITOC members ahead of a scheduled meeting should be submitted by noon Friday before the meeting, which helps HITOC members have time to review your feedback ahead of a particular meeting.

 

HITOC meets on the first Thursday every other month. The full meeting schedule can be found here.
