CommonWell Health Alliance was the first vendor-led, health IT interoperability initiative of its kind. CommonWell members build the capability to exchange health data into their software, enabling health care practitioners to work within their existing workflow.
From a solution-specific perspective, CommonWell services focus on solving the foundational needs of record location, patient record matching and linking, as well as federated query of data at national scale. CommonWell services collectively allow individuals and caregivers to find and access records associated with a patient regardless of where the care was delivered.
No single vendor can solve industry-wide interoperability on its own, which is why CommonWell relies on its diverse membership across the care continuum to improve cross-vendor interoperability nationwide.
