    Hi Folks,

    I’m a Oregon State Employee working on the MHIT Project. I’ve been asked to draft the scan portion of our SMHP. Might I have a copy of your MSHP (approved I presume) so I can glean some strategies from your success? If you prefer, I can work from the scan section. If you post the SMHP online, I can certainly work from a URL.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
