Recently, CommonWell member representatives Scott Stuewe (Director of the Cerner Network at Cerner and co-chair of the CommonWell Utilization Committee) and Daniel Cane (CEO and co-founder at Modernizing Medicine) participated in a HealthcareScene Blab with John Lynn. During the live webinar, they shared an update on the progress of CommonWell Health Alliance and discussed the current state of interoperability in health care.

Highlights from the Blab include:
• CommonWell has more than 50 members that specialize in care settings across the health care continuum. Less than half of those members are EHR suppliers.
4,700 provider sites live on CommonWell Services in 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
• Modernizing Medicine plans to go live with CommonWell services in the first quarter of 2017—which will give more than 10,000 physicians access to the CommonWell network.
