Manifest MedEx Growing Quickly as Californias Nonprofit Health Data Utility

Today, Manifest MedEx (MX) is announcing major new progress toward the
goal of connecting healthcare in California. The 18-month-old
organization is announcing that it is adding Heritage California and
Hill Physicians — two of the largest medical groups in the state — and
Stanford Health Care to the network. This will bring an estimated 1.5
million patients to the health information network already covering more
than 11 million Californians. As California’s health data utility, MX is
quickly building on its mission of giving hospitals, providers and
health plans the data they need to improve quality, reduce costs and
improve patient experience. During the first six months of 2018, the
nonprofit has already added major new participants, launched new
products, created new economic incentives, and grown its team.

Heritage Provider Network covers 700,000 patients with its network of
2,800 primary care physicians, 6,600 specialist physicians, and more
than 100 hospitals in Southern California. Hill Physicians has nearly
4,000 primary care physicians, specialists, sub-specialists, and
consultants in its Northern California medical group. In addition to
adding Heritage, Hill Physicians, and Stanford Health Care as
participants, MX also reached key growth milestones during the first
half of 2018:

“As we grow, we always have our mission — connecting healthcare in
California — front of mind,” said Claudia Williams, CEO of Manifest
MedEx. “We’re delivering information that helps hospitals, medical
groups, and ACOs do the hard work of improving care coordination,
reducing inefficiencies, addressing gaps in care, and enhancing the
patient experience. The scale of participation we’ve seen in just 18
months shows that we are on our way to collectively improving the
healthcare system and providing a better experience for everyone.”

Manifest MedEx is helping bring California healthcare into the digital
age, enabling a healthcare system that is patient-focused, affordable,
and high value. To join 200+ healthcare organizations in the MX network,
