Abstract

CommonWell Health Alliance is devoted to the simple vision that health data should be available to individuals and providers regardless of where care occurs. Additionally, provider access to these data must be built into health information technology at a reasonable cost for use by a broad range of healthcare providers and the people they serve.

Mission

CommonWell, together with its service provider and members, creates and executes a vendor-neutral platform that breaks down the technological and process barriers that currently inhibit effective health data exchange. It is committed to defining and promoting a national infrastructure with common standards and policies.

CommonWell is not looking to reinvent the wheel. Rather, it is leveraging existing standards and policies in order to enable scalable, secure, and reliable interoperability as easily as possible for its members and their customers across the nation.

Consortium History

March 4, 2013: CommonWell was launched.
