Data Aggregation: CHITO (Collaborative Health Information Technology of Oregon)
This initiative builds a community approach to the many disparate data collection and analytic services that can confuse and compete for time and resources among providers, health plans and coordinated care organizations (CCOs). Several organizations, including Oregon Health Care Quality Organization (Q Corp), Apprise (Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, OCHIN, and Oregon Health Leadership Council have significant investments in health care data collection and reporting, often resulting in duplication among collection and reporting sources. Ideally, working together we can create an aligned vision for priorities and better use our collective resources. It is clear that each organization has its unique competencies, and together we could create a very powerful, coordinated resource.
