Who We Are
CommonWell Health Alliance is a not-for-profit trade association open to health IT suppliers and others devoted to the simple notion that:
- Health data should be available to individuals and providers regardless of where care occurs and
- Providers’ access to this data must be built-in to health IT at a reasonable cost for use by a broad range of health care providers and the people they serve.
We hope you will join us as a member of our vendor-initiated and -led Alliance.
If you have been following us, you know we have launched our core service offering in a number of geographies across the US and are beginning to expand nationwide. As such, we are looking to engage new members and expand our offerings for our members’ providers.
