As interoperability improves and becomes more universal, healthcare as a whole will improve. For some, it could be a game-changer.
Today, we are excited to share an update on the CommonWell collaboration with Carequality to advance interoperability. Though there is still work to be done, we have made significant progress over the last few months. For example:
- CommonWell has met all Carequality requirements to move into production.
- Greenway Health and Cerner have a handful of initial providers live on the connection, allowing us to validate and benchmark the CommonWell-Carequality Connection.
- The initial rollout is going well. In the first two weeks, CommonWell-enabled providers bilaterally exchanged more than 4,000 documents with Carequality-enabled providers.
What does this mean for the healthcare industry?
Improving the exchange of data and information will help practices maintain their independence. Practices can exchange information with other healthcare entities to improve care without sacrificing autonomy.
“Being part of this initiative positions Greenway Health as an interoperability leader in our industry,” said Mark Janiszewski, executive vice president, product management and corporate development. “We’re excited for what this will mean for our customers and the success of their practices.”
CommonWell has more than 10,000 provider sites live in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico. And according to its website, “More than 1,250 hospitals, 35,000 clinics, and 600,000 healthcare providers are connected through the Carequality interoperability framework.”
Greenway Health, which is one of seven founding members of the CommonWell Health Alliance, has begun a limited rollout with a handful of initial providers, allowing the Alliance and its members to validate and benchmark the CommonWell Carequality Connection.
“We are still on track to make this generally available to our members, and in turn, their participating providers and healthcare systems, by the end of summer,” said Jitin Asnaani, executive director of CommonWell. “We know they are as excited as we are to make this next step forward in improving access to health data nationwide.”
