Oregon Community Information Exchange (OCIE)
The HIT Commons is beginning new work in the evolving landscape of social determinants of health (SDoH). Earlier this year, the HIT Commons Governance Board directed HIT staff to begin exploration and conceptual development of an Oregon Community Information Exchange (Oregon CIE). The Oregon CIE would include a data repository of shared community resources that connects health care, human and social services partners to improve the health and well-being of communities. A technology platform supporting an OCIE could provide many functions, including statewide social services directory, shared risk assessment capabilities, real-time closed loop referral management, collaborative care plans and standardized outcomes and data analysis.
HIT Commons staff are currently conducting an environmental scan to determine what efforts are underway in Oregon and how other states are approaching healthcare and SDoH integration. In Summer 2019, the HIT Commons Governance Board will review the findings and discuss options for moving forward.
