Should Cover Oregon stay the course or cut bait and seek IT elsewhere?

Should Cover Oregon stay the course or give up on its IT and switch to technology from another state or the federal exchange? Cover Oregon is looking at four basic options: stick with what it has now, either with its current contractor Oracle or a new vendor; transfer functioning technology from another state, in whole or in part; use the federal exchange technology; or purchase a technology product to replace the current system. A committee made up of Cover Oregon staff and board members and representatives of several health plans and the Oregon Health Authority has been discussing options.”We’re having ongoing conversations,” Aaron Karjala, Cover Oregon’s chief information officer, told the board last week. The exchange also hired consulting giant Deloitte to conduct an analysis of various options, but its findings have not been made public.
