Health IT Task Force​ (2013)

The Health Information Technology Task Force was convened in the fall of 2013 to provide recommendations to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on a multi-year Health Information Technology (HIT) / Health Information Exchange (HIE) Business Plan framework.

OHA has worked closely with a wide range of stakeholders to identify HIT/HIE needs, and specifically identify how the State, and statewide services could address some of those needs. The HIT Task Force helped to synthesize stakeholder input and develop this HIT/HIE Business Plan Framework to chart a path for statewide efforts over the next several years.

The stakeholder process led to a vision for Oregon of a transformed health system where HIT/HIE efforts ensure that the care Oregonians receive is optimized by HIT. HIT-optimized health care is more than the replacement of paper with electronic or mobile technology. It includes changes in workflow to assure providers fully benefit from timely access to clinical and other data that will allow them to provide individual/family centric care. 

 

 

The completed Business Plan Framework is a roadmap to advance HIT and HIE services that will support the transformation of Oregon’s health system and help improve health outcomes, quality of care, and reduce costs.

Oregon’s health system transformation effort is premised on a model of coordinated care that includes new methods for care coordination, accountability for performance, and new models of payment based on outcomes and health. To succeed, the coordinated care model relies on new systems for capturing, analyzing, and sharing information about patient care and outcomes, quality of care, and new modes of sharing care information between all members of care teams.
