Oregon Governor launches e-Health records plan

Oregon Governor, Ted Kulongoski announced that electronic health records systems are going to be installed in more than 4,000 doctors’ offices across the state. At the state level, work is going on aggressively to create a health information network in Oregon that prioritises patient privacy in a single connected system. It ensures that all citizens’ health records are available to them and their healthcare providers anytime and anywhere, and that those health records are confidential and secure at all times. As part of the effort to achieve that goal, Oregon will participate in a national program to assess how privacy and security safeguards — together with business practices — affect the electronic exchange of information.
