Content for discussion

Learn how Reliance eHealth Collaborative (formerly Jefferson Health Information Exchange) and the Oregon Health Authority utilized Federal funding to become a national leader in advancing behavioral health information exchange. The work provides a model for others working to integrate behavioral health information, lessons learned, and best practices for future efforts. Topics include:

  • Overcoming legal and policy challenges
  • Developing and implementing a common consent model
  • Debuting an informed consent consumer education video
  • Using HIT/HIE to support value-based care within behavioral health settings
  • Connecting with other entities such as the Veteran’s Administration and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

Hear about the state’s HIT strategies for behavioral health and lessons learned from behavioral and physical health providers about the benefits of information exchange to enhance the patient experience, facilitate care coordination and create a learning health system in which health information and data is foundational to improving treatment approaches.

Who should attend?

  • Leadership, clinicians and information technology professionals at Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Treatment provider organizations;
  • Primary care, emergency providers, and social service organizations who support those in need of mental health and substance use treatment services;
  • Coordinated Care Organization behavioral health teams and care coordinators; and
