Manifest MedEx wants every ACO, hospital, and medical group to have industrial-strength patient information. They want every patient encounter with an emergency department to be noticed. They want the sickest patients, the five percent who add up to 80 percent of costs, to get support to live healthier lives. For this to happen, patient health data needs to be unlocked from silos and exchanged between facilities in real-time. A new utility, led by a former Obama health staffer, is taking an aggressive non-profit approach and has broken 11 million patient records out in the first year.
