CommonWell is a not-for-profit trade association dedicated to cross-vendor interoperability that assures provider access to health data regardless of where care occurs.
“Joining CommonWell demonstrates our commitment to ensure that clinicians have access to a complete and organized medical record for each referred patient so the patient receives the right level of care starting from their first visit. Easier access to the clinically relevant record can be achieved through sharing information and working together to develop interoperability best practices within the health IT community,” said Ken Rosenfeld, CEO and President of eHealth Technologies.
eHealth Technologies works with over 50% of the top 100 hospitals in the United States and reaches out to over 30,000 healthcare locations a month to access and aggregate health records, pathology slides and images needed for patients that have been referred in for specialty care.
