Health Net Joins Manifest MedEx Health Data Network

California’s largest nonprofit health data network continues to
quickly expand delivery of real-time patient information across the
state.

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/healthdata?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#healthdatalt;/agt;–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
