Subject: Life Nexus

New Mexico Health Connections is a new health plan which started coverage in 2014. We currently have 35,000 members and will double and potentially triple that number by the end of 2016. We are a very aggressive, nimble and highly innovative organization. We began working with Life Nexus this September to pilot an implementation with a 300 physician medical group, Albuquerque Health Partners and carry that implementation to enroll all of our members by the end of 2016. Knowing that healthcare is finally becoming consumer centric and moving to smart technology, we looked at several firms to assist this rapidly growing trend, even here in New Mexico. We needed a technology that is affordable, flexible, highly innovative and, in particular understands physician and member adoption. We found the iChip technology and platform to be just that. We also did significant due diligence on the key developers of the platform in regards to their health IT experience, and as important, their knowledge and flexibility in working with physicians.

Most of my career has been working with and leading physicians. Their adoption of smart technology is key to any successful project such as Life Nexus is approaching. Again, the Life Nexus team’s ability to learn and flex their product to individual physician behavior was a key in our selection. As a highly experienced physician executive and CEO for over thirty years, I found the Life Nexus approach, team and technology to be vastly superior to any other vendor getting into the smart technology space. I am happy to discuss our thinking, experience and significant additional potential of Life Nexus should anyone wish to do so. I am hoping that the technology will continue as we, New Mexico Health Connections intend to grow to over 300,000 members in New Mexico over the next five years, as well as begin an expansion into Texas in 2018. We will also serve as the alpha project in smart technology for another 10 affiliated health plans in other states around the nation.
