Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC)
HITOC is tasked with setting goals and developing a strategic health information technology plan for the state, as well as monitoring progress in achieving those goals and providing oversight for the implementation of the plan. HITOC is currently coordinating Oregon's public and private statewide efforts in electronic health records adoption and the development of a statewide system for electronic health information exchange. HITOC will help Oregon meet federal requirements so that providers may be eligible for millions of federal health information technology stimulus dollars. HITOC builds on the past work of the Health Information Infrastructure Advisory Committee (HIIAC) and the Health Information Security and Privacy Collaborative (HISPC).
