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.

The Oregon Health Authority is pleased to announce the launch of the Health Information Exchange (HIE) Onboarding Program. The goal of the program is to facilitate the spread of electronic health information exchange across the state, specifically for Medicaid providers. Funded through a federal 90 percent match opportunity, the HIE Onboarding Program will provide financial support for certain initial costs of onboarding (connecting) priority Medicaid providers to the contracted HIE, Reliance eHealth Collaborative. Priority Medicaid providers identified for this program include behavioral health providers, oral health providers, critical physical health providers and others. Participation in the HIE Onboarding Program is completely voluntary. The contract is expected to run until September 30, 2021.
We are excited to announce that the CQMR is ready for Medicaid EHR Incentive Program electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) for 2018 reporting. For CCO incentive measures, however, the system needs some additional work and it will not be used for CCO incentive measures for 2018. Please see the Project Status page and 2018 Guidance Documentation for more information.
From now through November 14th, 2018 we are accepting nominations for HITOC committee members. You can find complete instructions and the application here: HITOC 2018 Call For Nominations and Application
