This is a valuable opportunity for our customers and marks a significant milestone on the path to achieving true nationwide health data exchange. Together, we are advancing the vision of CommonWell to make health data available to individuals and providers regardless of where care occurs.
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) December 17, 2019
Greenway Health, a leading health information technology and services provider, announced today that its Prime Suite and Intergy customers can now leverage the Carequality Interoperability Framework via the nationwide CommonWell network, increasing their users’ access to patient health information and ultimately improving patient care. As one of the founding members of CommonWell Health Alliance®, a not-for-profit trade association working to increase access to health data nationwide, this enhancement is an extension of Greenway’s long-term commitment to its customers and to CommonWell.
Greenway was one of the first CommonWell members to begin offering its customers access to CommonWell interoperability services in 2015, which today provides customers access to more than 15,000 clinical provider sites nationwide. Continuing its innovative leadership, Greenway was one of two companies in 2018 to pilot the CommonWell connection to the Carequality Interoperability Framework. The connection allows CommonWell-enabled health care providers, which now includes providers using Greenway’s Prime Suite and Intergy, to exchange health data with the members of all other implementers of the Carequality Interoperability Framework, greatly increasing participating providers’ access to their patient’s health data nationwide.
“Not only is this a valuable opportunity for our customers, but this marks a significant milestone on the path to achieving true nationwide health data exchange,” said Glenn Wilensky, vice president of implementation and professional services at Greenway Health and member of the CommonWell Board of Directors. “Together, we are advancing the vision of CommonWell to make health data available to individuals and providers regardless of where care occurs.”
Improving Visibility Across the Continuum of Care
Historically, providers have struggled to match patients and locate their health records as they move through care settings. Whether a person resides in one location or moves throughout her lifetime, a person’s health records reside in disparate health IT systems and care settings. Today’s announcement allows Greenway customers to overcome interoperability challenges by connecting and bilaterally exchanging health data with both CommonWell and Carequality-enabled health care providers across the United States.
“At CommonWell, we have created and deployed a vendor-neutral platform that breaks down the technological and process barriers that inhibit effective health data exchange,” said Paul Wilder, executive director of CommonWell Health Alliance. “By connecting large health systems, clinics, specialists and many more care venues, the CommonWell-Carequality connection offers valuable patient insights to providers, like Greenway’s more than 6,000 customers, as they strive to deliver the best care possible to their patients.”
The connection to Carequality-enabled providers via CommonWell is now available for free to all Greenway Intergy and Prime Suite customers. To see which providers are currently connected, view Who is Connected on the CommonWell website and the Active Sites’ page on the Carequality website.
