Oregon Provider Directory

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is implementing a resource for accurate, trusted provider data called the Oregon Provider Directory (OPD). The OPD will enable health care entities, including providers, hospitals, payers, Medicaid Coordinated Care Organizations, to find and connect with other providers, improve efficiencies in managing provider data, and support provider data analytics. It will not be consumer-facing.

Data from existing, trusted data sources, including data from providers and clinics will feed the OPD. Source data will be cleaned, matched, and merged to create a single master record also called the “golden record.” Types of data that can be found in the OPD will include provider names, practice locations, and contact information (including health information exchange addresses).   

The OPD will also leverage national or federally recognized standards (e.g. FHIR), which opens the door for an interoperable solution.

The project includes design, development, implementation, and maintenance of the technical solution, data validation and data management. MiHIN is the solution vendor and OneHealthPort provides single sign-on and identity verification services. An incremental implementation approach, driven by stakeholder-endorsed use cases, will be applied to ensure success. Implementation began in fall 2019.
