Oregon Statewide Provider Directory

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is developing a statewide provider directory (PD) that will be operational in 2018. Healthcare entities will use PD to find authoritative healthcare practitioner and practice setting information. The PD is part of our Health IT (HIT) portfolio which includes other HIT services such as the Oregon Common Credentialing Program and the Clinical Quality Metrics Registry. Harris Corporation is the system integrator and is responsible for procuring and overseeing the implementations.

The PD will leverage data from existing, trusted data sources, starting with the upcoming Oregon Common Credentialing Program which places a 120-day requirement for providers to update their credentialing information in a central database. Other authoritative data sources will also be included and matched to produce a complete data set of quality provider data that can be used to support operational efficiencies, health information exchange, care coordination, and analysis of provider data. It will also leverage national or federally recognized standards (such as the IHE-HPD standard and FHIR) which supports the management of provider directories and opens the door for an interoperable solution.

The project includes design, development, implementation, and maintenance of the technical solution, data validation and management, as well as operations, ongoing management, and oversight of the program. An incremental implementation approach, driven by stakeholder endorsed use cases will be applied to ensure success out of the gate.
