CommonWell FHIR-ing out API requests to MEDITECH

February 22, 2018|Deployment, FHIR, HIMSS, Services|

As Brightree shared in the previous blog, FHIR offers many advantages over legacy standards and for that reason, MEDITECH is certifying to be CommonWell’s first fully FHIR enabled member; both supplying and consuming C-CDA documents via FHIR APIs. We have opted to certify using RESTful FHIR APIs for ease, speed, and future-proofing. Because FHIR specifies modern file formats like JSON, [...]

We Didn’t Start the FHIR…

February 21, 2018|FHIR, HIMSS, Post-acute care|

With sincere apologies to Billy Joel, the title for this blog is actually very accurate. We didn’t start the FHIR.

February 15, 2018|Alliance Updates, HIMSS, Launch, Members, Membership|

Five years ago, five health IT leaders from competing companies stood on a stage during HIMSS13 and announced they were coming together to breakdown the silos of health data exchange. I remember standing in that New Orleans hotel ballroom, proud of what my industry was doing and excited for what was about to come. Many openly questioned the likelihood of [...]

February 13, 2018|Deployment, HIMSS, Interoperability, Providers, Value of Health IT|

Often, it is when we take a step back and look at the big picture of the health care industry that we most clearly see the urgent need for true interoperability and can reaffirm the real value that CommonWell services are already bringing to providers and their patients. Last Tuesday, HIMSS provided us with such an opportunity in a webinar [...]

HIMSS17: It’s a wrap

March 2, 2017|Alliance Updates, HIMSS|

This year marks our 5th Anniversary at HIMSS, which hardly seems possible for those of us who have been a part of CommonWell since day one. This year seemed to be especially fun, with individuals from many of our member companies staffing our booth. We had a great time hosting new and old friends in our booth and enjoyed [...]
