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.
