Strategic Plan for Health IT
HITOC and OHA are pleased to share that HITOC's Draft Oregon Strategic Plan for Health IT, 2024-2028 is now available!
Oregon's Strategic Plan for Health IT provides high-level priorities, guidance, and direction for health IT over the next five years. HITOC identified the priority work for partners in the health IT landscape to coordinate health IT efforts for the benefit of statewide progress. The plan was developed over a multi-year process involving HITOC meetings, two workgroups, and extensive community engagement (See Community Engagement and Input Report 2018-2023).
The Strategic Plan includes HITOC's Vision, Goals, Principles, Strategies, and Activities for health IT in Oregon. The Strategies focus on patients and consumers, electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchange (HIE), community information exchange (CIE), interoperability, and governance.
The Strategic Plan is for everyone using or impacted by health IT in Oregon, including but not limited to consumers and patients, providers and clinic staff, community-based organizations (CBOs), hospitals, health systems, coordinated care organizations (CCOs) and health insurance plans (payers), technology partners, and state agencies.
To provide feedback to HITOC on this Strategic Plan or other topics, please email HITOC.firstname.lastname@example.org or provide public comment at a HITOC meeting. Please see the Strategic Plan webpage for more information on the process and further materials and resources.
