There are different degrees of commitment to the Alliance Vision and Mission. An organization can become an Alliance Member, which is best for those organizations that are not yet ready to or do not intend to adopt CommonWell Services. For those organizations that are ready to participate in data exchange, we recommend signing up as a CommonWell Service Adopter, which comes with Contributor member privileges and a commitment to utilizing and offering our services to your stakeholders and clients.
