CommonWell Announces Initial Interoperability Services Launch

CommonWell Health Alliance and its members have been busy laying the framework for interoperability, proving that competitive vendors can come together for the common good. The recent CommonWell Connect-a-thon gave the seven participating members, a chance to successfully test interoperability between our products.  The next step is to launch CommonWell interoperability services throughout the United States. In early 2014, locations in Chicago, IL, Elkin and Henderson, NC and Columbia, SC have been selected as participating regions for the first rollout of CommonWell’s interoperability services. More sites will be selected post-HIMSS14.

CPSI is excited that one of our facilities, Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital (Elkin, NC) is one of the provider sites included in the rollout. This gives CommonWell a chance to test interoperability in rural areas.
