Cerner to extend free CommonWell interoperability services through 2020

Cerner President Zane Burke discussed the health IT company's data sharing efforts at the Cerner Health Conference in Kansas City, Mo., according to an Oct. 11 Cerner blog post.

Mr. Burke pledged that the company would extend its free CommonWell Health Alliance services to Cerner clients through 2020. Cerner is a founding member of the nonprofit, which is focused on developing and deploying interoperability solutions.

He added Cerner plans to roll out free patient-targeted health record services to its clients.

"We will work in concert with your patient portal so that each one of us [as patients] has the ability to take our information and create our own experience," he explained. "It's time for the patient to be part of the care team, and it's time for us to embrace that."
