A culture engineered for collaboration On day one, not all CommonWell members wanted to use the old HL7 v2 PIX solution to provide registration messages to CommonWell. Some advanced members wanted to develop a future-facing solution including REST and FHIR. Also, the Alliance wanted to offer flexibility via multiple onboarding pathways for our members, so we collectively decided to support both [...]
