Oregon will seek $26.5 million from Congress to create an electronic health information network in Oregon.
The money would pay for installation of electronic health records systems in more than 4,000 doctors' offices across the state.
The network would prioritize patient privacy "in a single, connected system," Gov. Ted Kulongoski told a meeting of health care professionals, educators and public officials at Oregon Health and Science University.
