Why CommonWell Health Alliance
Interoperability for the Common Good
We understand that in order for health IT to work, it must be inherently interoperable.
Today, our industry is fragmented and health data is siloed. Many have tried to improve data access to advance the delivery of care. Now is the time for the health care industry to take the lead and move beyond simply recognizing the issue.
Together, with our member companies, provider organizations and service provider, CommonWell is taking bold action to drive forward ubiquitous interoperability. We are developing and offering services that are embedded natively in vendors’ own software, not bolted on as an afterthought. These services go beyond just one system, one organization or one community; they can connect nationwide.
CommonWell is committed to helping solve the longstanding problem of interoperability in the health care industry. We welcome all organizations – suppliers, providers, health-focused associations – who share in this vision to join us in banding together for Interoperability for the Common Good.
