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.
The Patient’s Perspective
“The first time I was able to access my data through CommonWell, a sense of relief came over me. I clicked a button, and within minutes, I had a record waiting for me. It was a large document from my primary care physician…
It was incredible and reassuring to see all this data flow into the right hands, and I could feel the power it contained.
What used to take hours of phone calls, trips to doctors’ offices, and lots of paper, happened in just minutes as I watched on my laptop’s screen.”

A list of many CommonWell-enabled provider sites can be found on our Who is Connected page, but we encourage you to also ask your health care provider to find out if they are connected to the CommonWell network.
Some of our CommonWell Service Adopter members are working on introducing a way that would allow a person to self-enroll and access her available patient records via a patient portal or Personal Health Record. Stay tuned to the For the Patient page and our blog for updates as they are available.
