Cal INDEX

CI_header_T7

Our healthcare system in California is fragmented and complex. The inability to share valuable health data can result in incomplete information, affecting everyone in the healthcare system individuals, providers, employers, and producers – and can lead to poor-quality patient care and waste and inefficiency that costs billions of dollars nationally.

To address this tremendous unmet need, we have joined with Anthem Blue Cross to create the California Integrated Data Exchange – or Cal INDEX. An independent, not-for-profit organization, Cal INDEX is developing a statewide, next-generation health information exchange (HIE), which will include clinical data from healthcare providers and health insurers. Cal INDEX will allow physicians, nurses and hospitals throughout the state to share patients’ health information to help them provide the safest, highest-quality care possible. When Cal INDEX launches later this year, it will initially provide physicians and nurses with secure, online access to approximately 9 million health information records from Blue Shield’s and Anthem Blue Cross’s members or nearly one-fourth of the state’s population.
