Community Medical Centers partners with Manifest MedEx to improve care transitions

Community Medical Centers (CMC) is a Federally Qualified Health Center and certified Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) with locations in San Joaquin, Solano, and Yolo counties. CMC clinics serve the safety net population, and most of CMC’s more than 100,000 patients are insured through Medicare, Medi-Cal, or the Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ). CMC offers a full slate of regional, integrated care services across the primary care, behavioral health, and oral health spectrum. CMC also provides supportive services such as case management and targeted, population-specific services such as primary “health home” for its high-risk patients.

CMC is committed to serving its safety net population using the “whole person” model to provide the highest quality care for this vulnerable population. A key component of this model is improving care transitions and ensuring access to reliable patient information across care teams to enable timely, effective care.

To support their population health and whole person care goals, CMC participates in Manifest MedEx (MX), California’s largest nonprofit health data network, and its local affiliate San Joaquin Community Health Information Exchange (SJCHIE) to connect safety net providers like CMC to other healthcare organizations in the region, like San Joaquin General Hospital. This exchange provides useful clinical and claims data to participating organizations at the point of care so that providers can more effectively and efficiently address the health care and social needs of high-risk patients.
