Manifest MedEx Now Exchanging Real-time Health Data Under the CalHHS Data Exchange Framework (DxF) for DxF Participants

As announced earlier this month, Manifest MedEx is now securely exchanging permitted health data in real-time on behalf of DxF participants, including with other qualified health information organizations (QHIOs), marking a new milestone in the implementation of the DxF.

The nearly 200 organizations that selected Manifest MedEx as their data exchange intermediary in the DxF Participant Directory are now successfully meeting their health data sharing obligations under AB 133, state law that requires most health care entities in California to exchange health and social services information beginning this year. We expect this number to increase substantially as more DxF participants fill out their entries in the newly launched directory.

"We have made important investments to expand and scale our capabilities to serve as a QHIO for all DxF participants — regardless of geography, resources, or size," said Erica Galvez, Chief Executive Officer, Manifest MedEx. "Our goal is to advance a health data safety net for the state by making it as easy as possible for more organizations to participate in the DxF and securely share critical health information needed to improve the health and wellness of all Californians."

Manifest MedEx Joins NCQA Digital Content Services Early Adopter Program

Manifest MedEx is pleased to announce that we are participating in NCQA’s Digital Content Services Early Adopter Program to advance digitized quality measurement initiatives and help shape NCQA’s framework and approach to enabling the practical and flexible use of digital quality measures across the full spectrum of value-based care use cases, including quality reporting for health plans.

As an Early Adopter, Manifest MedEx will access NCQA’s first software application for digitized HEDIS® measures and will configure, schedule, and run digital HEDIS® measure executions for 14 digital quality measures chosen by NCQA specifically for their relevance in value-based care programming, with 20 percent also represented in the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS) “Universal Foundation” initiative. Hosted in Manifest MedEx’s cloud environment, these digital measures take advantage of FHIR® and Clinical Quality Language (CQL), an expression language curated by HL7 that CMS, NCQA, and others have adopted for digital quality measures.

“Our participation as a pioneer and Early Adopter of NCQA’s Digital Content Services demonstrates our commitment to advancing digitized quality measurement initiatives to help streamline and reduce costs for HEDIS® measure updates and certification and accelerate health care’s transition to a digital measurement ecosystem,” said Jason Buckner, Chief Information Officer, Manifest MedEx. “We are proud to partner with NCQA in this work, in addition to our ongoing participation in NCQA’s Data Aggregator Validation program, which validates our clinical data streams for health plans to use in HEDIS® reporting and other quality programs without the need for primary source verification.”

Stay tuned as we share outcomes of our participation in NCQA's Digital Content Services Early Adopter Program!

Successful implementation of the DxF will accelerate robust health data sharing to advance health equity, public health, and Medi-Cal outcomes – improving health and wellness for all Californians. In this session, health leaders from a statewide QHIO, a regional QHIO/CIE, a Medicaid health plan, and large Enhanced Care Management (whole person care) provider will discuss their journey in implementing the DxF and highlight ways they are leveraging data sharing to improve patient care across all communities.
