CommonWell’s Commitment to our Industry, our Members, and their Providers and Patients


Anyone and everyone can talk interoperability, but CommonWell Health Alliance members are all committed to building interoperability into their software so that providers can work seamlessly within their existing workflow. Members have made tangible headway on that effort by focusing on four initial services that facilitate exchange:  identity management, record locator, consent management and trusted data access. The notion that CommonWell would “sell data” is absurd, but especially inaccurate in light of our focus on these services.  CommonWell places the highest importance on patient privacy and security. We have not and will not ever sell personal health data. That is not what we’re about. In fact, our model is such that CommonWell will not have access to or hold any clinical data.  CommonWell has a limited right to provide its services, [...]

Breaking Down Silos to Deliver One Vision, One Voice for Interoperability


This week marks the 9th annual National Health Information Technology Week—a forum where the industry recognizes the collaborative efforts of all those dedicated to advancing our health care system through the use of information technology. CommonWell Health Alliance is a testament to what collaborative efforts can do to drive new approaches and innovations to solve one of our industry’s most challenging issues – interoperation. When we formed eighteen months ago, there were those who doubted that competitors could find common ground and agree to one vision. But today, more than a dozen vendors are succeeding not only to have one vision, but also to have one voice as we break down the barriers for interoperability in health care. In just 18 months, our shared vision and collective efforts have led [...]

And Now There are Nine.


It is the first morning of the HIMSS14 exhibition and in CommonWell fashion, we are unleashing BIG NEWS. You may have seen our news reported yesterday of all our service launch clients going live AND expanding our services to additional locations, including national health system, Tenet Healthcare. But there’s more – we are now pleased to report that CVS Caremark and MEDHOST have joined as contributing members to the CommonWell Health Alliance. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome and start working with the nation’s largest pharmacy chain and a tenured enterprise IT supplier with an established customer base. Our work together starts today. Read the full releases on our website or come by our booth #1389 or MEDHOST’s booth nearby at #747 to learn more. Speaking of our booth, [...]

Closing Out a Year of Work & Collaboration, Moving to Launch Phase


As CommonWell enters 2014, it’s critical that we, its founding members, translate our enthusiasm for interoperability as a common good into clear value for the health care industry. Early in the year, we will begin to show the world that the underlying workflows we’ve been developing across each of the founding members’ platforms are progressing, and most importantly, will become the information rails from which information will flow and patient care will improve. CommonWell’s work will have tremendous impact on the patient and provider experience. Health care as it exists today is, from the patient’s view and for too many providers also, largely a paper-based process. This is in stark contrast to being digitally equipped and backed in so many other aspects of our lives. By making interoperability a living, [...]

Introducing our Board of Directors


As you may have seen this morning, CommonWell Health Alliance is officially an incorporated trade association and with that comes the election of our Board of Directors. As I said in our press release, I am proud and very fortunate to have such a talented group of individuals joining me on the Board. We have been working collaboratively for the last eight months to help break down the barriers of health data exchange. I write this as the Alliances comes off of a working session in Denver, where our member companies demonstrated tremendous progress both on the operational and technological front. It is such an exciting time to be a part of this effort and I can’t wait for us to share more at HIMSS in February about our pilot [...]
