California is taking another step toward a modern medical information infrastructure with the addition of Health Net, LLC (Health Net) to the state’s largest nonprofit health data network, Manifest MedEx (MX). Health Net has more than 3,000 employees and 85,000 providers in its network, serving more than three million members in its commercial and government-sponsored health plans. The addition of Health Net follows the recent announcements of AHMC Healthcare, Heritage California, Hill Physicians, Scripps Health, and Stanford Health Care as MX participants.
Manifest MedEx is a utility-style network for health information across the state. The data securely delivered to health organizations means providers are notified when their patients are admitted or discharged from the hospital, can track lab values across various facilities, and can proactively reach out to patients requiring additional support. As the health sector transitions to value-based care, the availability of this kind of information is increasingly crucial.
Health Net was recently recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, earning four out of five stars in its annual Star Ratings report. The report includes dozens of quality-of-care measures and member experience ratings for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan enrollees. In addition, the National Committee for Quality Assurance elevated Health Net’s accreditation rating from “Accredited” to “Commendable” for two of its plans: Health Net of California, Inc.’s commercial HMO/POS health plan and Health Net Life Insurance Company of California’s commercial PPO health plan.
Manifest MedEx is working quickly to help California providers access a new $50 million pool of state and federal funding to help cover the cost of participating in health information networks in the year ahead. The nonprofit network has newly rolled out an upgraded technology platform with a focus on scalable data services for the rapidly growing network of 200+ participants.
“Last year brought so much momentum for our health data network,” said Claudia Williams, CEO of Manifest MedEx and former White House senior advisor of health innovation and technology. “Adding Health Net is the perfect way to kick off a new year of growth and delivering value to communities and healthcare organizations across the state.”
Manifest MedEx is helping California healthcare leaders deliver care that is patient-focused, affordable, and high value. To join the MX network, visit www.manifestmedex.org.
