Today, CommonWell kicks off our 6th Annual Meeting and Fall Summit with our New Member Welcome. These six newest members, representing large health systems, non-profits and software providers, continue to expand and enhance our Alliance.
Even as we grow to be an 80+ member organization, CommonWell continues to feel like a close-knit network of colleagues working together to improve the accessibility and sharing of health data to improve clinical outcomes. As we walk into a CommonWell event like the Summit this week, we figuratively leave our company badges at the door. Our goals become one, and our industry is better off because of it. I am excited to introduce our newest members to this unique culture.
Please join me in welcoming our newest General Members:
