How many times have you gone to a new doctor only to find that you had to recall your past surgeries, illnesses and medications because your records were stored nowhere but inside your head?
At CommonWell Health Alliance, we’re changing that. We believe that your health data should be available to you and your providers, regardless of where care is needed.
Together, with our service provider and the health information technology companies that provide software to many of your health care providers, we have created a nationwide network and service to do just that.
HOW DO OUR SERVICES HELP?
- Allows your doctors to better coordinate your care: Different doctors – primary care providers, specialists, care managers and more – will have more secure, near instant access to your health information. This includes health facilities you may visit near your home, as well as any you may visit while traveling in the U.S.
- Helps you get more informed care: With less time wasted tracking down your test results and other health information, your health care providers can spend more time focused on your care.
- Supports you in case of emergency: There may be a time when you don’t have the ability to gather or share your health information. Medical staff could immediately access your allergies, medications and health problems, helping them care for you without delay.
- Reduces paperwork and hassle: Save time and avoid the inconvenience of filling out the same health history forms over and over when you see new doctors or visit a specialist in the CommonWell network. Your latest health information will be right at their fingertips.
