The Oregon Health Authority is now accepting nominations for the Health Information Technology Oversight Council (HITOC). Nominations are due November 9, 2018.

What is HITOC?
HITOC members participate in health system transformation by working towards a vision of health IT-optimized health care, in which robust health IT (HIT) tools support providers, patients and their families, health systems, Medicaid Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs), health plans, and policymakers. HITOC is responsible for establishing the strategic plan for HIT for Oregon, making policy recommendations, assessing the HIT landscape, and programmatic oversight. HITOC reports to the Oregon Health Policy Board, and membership is set by the Board.

Who we’re looking for:
The Oregon Health Policy Board is committed to ensuring all committees reflect the racial, ethnic, gender, geographic, and disability diversity of Oregonians. We’re looking for motivated leaders with health IT expertise and are especially interested in nominees with health IT experience in:
  • Behavioral health (both mental health and substance use disorder treatment)
  • Oral health
  • Consumer/patient advocacy
  • Primary care
  • Long-term services and supports
  • Tribal health
  • Social determinants of health and equity
  • Corrections health
  • Rural/frontier communities
Details of service:
HITOC meets for three hours every other month in Portland (12:30-3:45 pm first Thursdays of even numbered months in Portland). Although in-person attendance is preferred, members may participate via phone/webinar. Membership terms are for 3 years.

Nominations are open now through November 9, 2018.
