Membership Information

The Alliance is open to all organizations who are aligned in our vision to make health data accessible, helping to improve care coordination and health outcomes. Members today range from health systems to non-profits, government agencies to health IT vendors and much more.

Alliance Membership

CommonWell membership options are aligned to what your organization’s health data exchange goals may be. Interested in offering CommonWell services to your customers? Consider becoming a Service Adopter. Looking to better demonstrate your commitment to interoperability in health care? Join us a General Member.

Service Adopters

Service Adopters are members committed to connecting to the network and building CommonWell Services into their software. Members who adopt services also become Contributor Members of the Alliance allowing them to actively participate in committees where they can both influence and vote on the direction of the Alliance and our service offerings.

General Members

General Members are those organizations that are not yet ready to or do not intend to adopt CommonWell Services. Members are encouraged to participate in Alliance activities and committees, including providing input on committee discussions and proposals.

Alliance Annual Membership Fees

CommonWell Health Alliance is a not-for-profit funded by annual membership fees, which are based upon an organization’s annual U.S. Health Information Technology (HIT) revenue.
