17 Million Records Now on California’s Health Data Network, Manifest MedEx

Sponsored by Businesswire

It’s been just over two years since Manifest MedEx formed to connect
health information for patients and providers across the state of
California. The statewide network now has more than 400 participating
hospitals, health plans, and provider organizations exchanging
information in real time for 17 million people — approximately 40
percent of Californians. By unlocking health data from silos, Manifest
MedEx is helping health leaders reduce costs, enhance care, and improve
patient experience.

Among other services designed to put information to work, Manifest MedEx
delivers 80,000 notifications each month to medical providers in real
time when their patients are admitted, transferred, or discharged from
the hospital. Bringing the right data to the right provider at the right
time, these actionable insights improve patient care — for example,
ensuring primary care physicians know when their patients are having a
serious health issue and helping care managers plan for safe transfers
from the hospital to recovery at home.

Additional progress since last summer:

  • Grown to include more than 70 hospital participants and five health
  • Rolled out a $60,000
    per hospital
    bonus program for participants that join the network
    before May 31, 2019
  • Selected for a $4.9
    million grant
    from the Emergency Medical Services Association
    (EMSA) to connect California’s ambulances and emergency departments
  • Profiled in Modern
    by ACO participant that was able to reduce ER
    visits and improve post-discharge follow-up using MX data and services
  • Added new major participants Health
    , Scripps
    , and AHMC
  • Transitioned to a scalable new technology infrastructure with partners
    InterSystems, Verato, HBI Solutions, Audacious Inquiry, NextGate, and
  • Added Paul Biberkraut as chief financial officer (formerly of Pacific
    Partners Management Services) and Sandra Parker as general counsel and
    chief privacy officer (formerly of The Permanente Medical Group)
  • Presented on their innovative utility model for health data exchange
    at HIMSS and SXSW conferences

Later this summer, Manifest MedEx will launch a new suite of MX Analyze
tools to help providers put network data to work for their patients.
Free for all small practice providers, these population health
management and analytics tools will assist in identifying patients
missing crucial preventive care or most in need of care coordination and
other support.
