Scripps Health and AHMC Healthcare join statewide health data
utility, helping California improve patient care and reduce healthcare
costs through data sharing.
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#healthdata—Manifest
MedEx (MX) is announcing two new major participants for California’s
largest nonprofit health data network. Scripps Health, a nonprofit
integrated healthcare delivery system in San Diego serving 750,000
patients annually, and AHMC Healthcare, a network of seven affiliated
hospitals in the greater San Gabriel Valley, have joined the network to
securely exchange crucial patient health information in real time. These
additions follow the announcement
earlier this year of Stanford Health Care, Heritage California, and Hill
Physicians as participants.
MX helps physicians, hospitals, and health plans across California meet
their goals of improving quality, reducing cost, and enhancing patient
experience. Less than two years since launch, MX participating providers
have already demonstrated improvements in patient outcomes and
reductions in readmission rates through the use of MX data and services.
Scripps Health includes five acute care hospital campuses with more than
3,000 affiliated physicians and 15,000 employees, and its hospitals are
ranked among the best in the nation. Scripps is recognized as a leader
in disease and injury prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as
being at the forefront of clinical research. AHMC Healthcare operates
more than 1,200 beds at seven affiliated acute care facilities and
employs more than 7,000 caregivers in the San Gabriel Valley Area. The
organization operates safety-net hospitals for a diverse community and
has been recognized by The Joint Commission, Baby-Friendly USA, and Becker’s
Hospital Review for delivering high-quality outcomes.
“Hospitals and providers across California recognize that they cannot
improve care, provide great patient experiences, and reduce costs
without better data,” said Claudia Williams, CEO of Manifest MedEx. “We
are excited to partner with Scripps and AHMC to help them meet their
goals of improving community health and serving diverse communities in
Southern California. Their job is to improve healthcare. Our job is to
get them the information they need.”
MX offers scalable data services on an upgraded technology platform,
helping its rapidly growing network know immediately when patients leave
the hospital, treat with confidence based on patients’ whole records,
and manage risk and population health. California’s providers will also
soon have a new pool of state and federal funding to cover the cost of
participation in MX and other health information networks, thanks to a
$50 million program MX helped secure for the state.
Manifest MedEx is helping bring California healthcare into the digital
age, enabling a system that is patient-focused, affordable, and high
value. To join 200+ healthcare organizations in the MX network, visit www.manifestmedex.org.
