Manifest MedEx (MX) is pleased to be part of a new commitment to quickly expand health information sharing across the state. Blue Shield of California announced in early March 2018 that it will start requiring its providers to participate in the nonprofit MX network, including substantial support for its accountable care organization (ACO) participants. We’ll be helping these providers leverage MX data and services to further their work of coordinating care and improving patient outcomes. The 42 Blue Shield of California ACO programs will be an early focus. These ACOs serve 385,000 Californians and have built progress already: reducing hospital admissions by 19%, decreasing days patients stay in the hospital by 19% and saving an estimated $440 million in costs. Read the official announcement here. MX is connecting with these providers across California now to help them get started.
