Greenway Health is one of the seven founding members of CommonWell, a non-profit trade association dedicated to establishing a standard process for exchanging patient information across healthcare organizations both efficiently and securely. The partnership between Greenway Health and CommonWell is allowing customers to securely obtain a comprehensive view of patient's health history. The alliance has grown steadily since 2013, adding health IT vendors that serve 70% of the acute care EHR market and 24% of the ambulatory EHR market.
Nancy Brown is a practice administrator at a Greenway customer that makes use of CommonWell connectivity as part of its patient-centered medical home efforts. Brown says that, "CommonWell will enable us to quickly gather more of the relevant patient records, so we can better coordinate that care and deliver better potential outcomes." CommonWell has made it much easier to access critical information regardless of the information system being used, which is ultimately enabling clinicians to make more informed decisions and leading to better health outcomes overall.
