Under the leadership of the non-profit organization IHA, the symphonic repertoire serves as a national platform for managing supplier data in California and streamlines the way health plans and health care providers share and vote in accordance with national and federal regulations. ”With full availability, Symphony will achieve significant efficiency gains and eliminate manual processes across the industry,” says Eyal Gurion, Chief Operating Officer, IHA, which handles Symphony.

”By the end of the year, we estimate that Symphony, through our partnerships with more than 100 medical groups and 15 health plans like Anthem, will have data for more than 50% of California suppliers.” ”It`s important that consumers have accurate information so they can make informed choices when choosing a health plan,” said Shelley Rouillard, director of the California City Department of Health. ”The list of symphonic suppliers is an example of how the industry has worked together to reduce administrative burden, both for plans and suppliers, and to provide consumers with more accurate and reliable information. I hope that there will be more cooperative efforts at the industry level, such as this one, for the good of California health care consumers. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.-Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) announced today that it has agreed to extend its participation in the Integrated Healthcare (IHA) Symphonic Suppliers` Directory until 2023.
