Manifest MedEx Launches No-Cost California ADT Network

Manifest MedEx, California’s largest nonprofit Qualified Health Information Organization (QHIO), is launching the California ADT Network — a no-cost, electronic ADT notification exchange — to help organizations exchange Admit, Discharge, and Transfer data in compliance with the state’s Data Exchange Framework (DxF) and to substantially scale the sharing of ADT alerts across the state.

The free, bi-directional ADT exchange from Manifest MedEx removes cost barriers for DxF participants and streamlines this required data sharing, the organization said. It will enable more ADT notifications to be shared between hospitals, SNFs, and QHIOs supporting their care teams who “subscribe” for alerts on their patients — ultimately benefiting the patient.

“Providers have been asking for this type of real-time health data for decades to help physicians provide better and more efficient care for their patients,” said William Barcellona, executive vice president of government affairs for America’s Physician Groups, a national professional association of over 300 medical groups and independent practice associations across the United States, in a statement. “This is a great opportunity for California to advance health data sharing to benefit all patients and communities.”
