Welcome to our Newest CommonWell Members!

2019-01-09T18:10:04+00:00

We Didn’t Start the FHIR…

2019-01-15T18:22:59+00:00

With sincere apologies to Billy Joel, the title for this blog is actually very accurate. We didn’t start the FHIR. Modern interoperability is all about standing on the shoulders of giants and the work that comes before you. And that is what FHIR does – it takes many good things that have impacted healthcare interoperability in a positive manner and modernizes the concepts from a transactional and infrastructure standpoint, and from a content standpoint, to enable interoperability to achieve better scalability. You can read how CommonWell has enabled use of the FHIR standard within the CommonWell services in Andrew Wright’s, Change Healthcare, blog post. Why did we at Brightree embrace FHIR for our connectivity with CommonWell and other portions of our interoperability solutions sets? We are writing today to help [...]

Beyond the EHR: Diversity in Our Membership

2019-01-15T18:37:36+00:00

Five years ago, five health IT leaders from competing companies stood on a stage during HIMSS13 and announced they were coming together to breakdown the silos of health data exchange. I remember standing in that New Orleans hotel ballroom, proud of what my industry was doing and excited for what was about to come. Many openly questioned the likelihood of success and some even questioned the motives of the participants. Many others, myself included, knew it was just what the industry needed to help jumpstart our nation in improving the delivery of health care. When we launched CommonWell Health Alliance, we knew we needed to keep the initial launch focused, starting with allowing disparate EHRs to connect across and amongst acute and ambulatory practices. And our membership during our first [...]

Today is one of my favorite days of the work year – the CommonWell Fall Summit and Annual Meeting. It’s a time where our 70+ CommonWell members gather together to look back on the past year, plan for the coming year and have fun catching up with each other.

But one thing remains consistent across our entire member base – our passion for improving the accessibility and sharing of health data to improve clinical outcomes.
