Oregon is transforming health care delivery to improve health outcomes and quality of care while reducing costs for all Oregonians. Health information technology is essential to these efforts. Timely access to health information allows for improved communications, coordination and efficiencies across care settings. Health information technology supports patient-centered care, ensuring that the right health information is available to health systems, providers and patients at the right time and place.

OHA is pleased to announce that Reliance eHealth Collaborative was selected to provide onboarding services for the Health Information Exchange (HIE) Onboarding Program. The HIE Onboarding Program will provide financial support for certain initial costs of connecting (onboarding) priority Medicaid providers to a community-based HIE that provides meaningful HIE opportunities and that plays a vital role for Medicaid in that community. The Program will be funded by 90 percent federal funds and 10 percent state funds.
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is seeking qualified candidates to fill vacancies on its Provider Directory Advisory Committee (PDAC) and Provider Directory Subject Matter Expert Workgroups (PD-SME). The groups consist of diverse health care professionals with backgrounds in provider data/directories and represent project stakeholders. Each group plays a unique role in providing OHA expertise and guidance on policy, program, and technical considerations for the design and implementation of Oregon’s Provider Directory. Both groups began meeting in Spring 2017.
This is a two-year commitment. Technology vendors are not eligible to serve on the advisory groups.
If you are interested in helping inform this work, please fill out the combined PDAC and PD-SME application and indicate your interest in serving on one or both advisory groups. Applications must be completed and submitted to email@example.com no later than November 30, 2017.
Oregon’s HIT efforts are guided by overarching priorities of OHA and the Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB) within a constantly shifting health care environment. OHPB’s Action Plan for Health, created in 2010 and refreshed in 2017, sets a clear direction for advancing health in Oregon, and HIT plays a critical role in several key initiatives, including expanding the coordinated care model, integrating physical, behavioral and oral health, and moving upstream to address the social determinants of health. HIT is also an important enabler to broader health system transformation efforts, including improving health outcomes, lowering costs, and addressing health inequities across different populations and regions.
