The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to appropriate $311,237 of year-two Intergovernmental Transfer Funds (IGT) from Partnership HealthPlan of California (PHC), and request to authorize the Board President to execute a multi-year contract with Redwood MedNet, in the amount of $774,525, to develop and support a Marin Safety-Net Health Information Exchange. In 2014, the Board authorized the acceptance of a second year of IGT funds from PHC in the amount of $1,656,237 to provide health services to its managed Medi-Cal beneficiaries. HHS is returning for approval to appropriate a portion of the federal funds to implement one of its PHC approved initiatives, the development, implementation, and provision of ongoing support of a Health Information Exchange (HIE) for Marin’s safety-net.
The Board approved the appropriation of funding and approved to authorize the Board President to execute the contract.
