For health plans and providers, maintaining provider directories is challenging, expensive, and time-consuming.
In 2016, state legislators passed Senate Bill 137 (SB 137), a comprehensive provider directory compliance law. SB 137 outlines requirements for publishing and maintaining accurate provider directory information based on uniform data standards.
To address industry challenges and regulatory requirements, a group including Blue Shield of California and the Department of Managed Healthcare chose IHA to lead the creation of a statewide, centralized provider directory database.
So now, we’re orchestrating an industry-wide movement to solve provider directory challenges with the Symphony Provider Directory.
Creating a solution to a decades-long, industry-wide issue like provider data management takes time. Follow along as we work together with health plans, providers, and industry leaders to simplify provider data management for all.
