Carequality, CommonWell Health Alliance launch agreement

Carequality and CommonWell Health Alliance joined forces on a three-pronged agreement in an effort to extend providers' ability to request and retrieve EHR information from other providers.

Carequality, an initiative of The Sequoia Project, is an interoperability framework designed to enable data exchange. Members include vendors, providers, payers and more.

CommonWell Health Alliance is a nonprofit trade association focused on interoperability in healthcare.

The partnership includes the following initiatives:

  • CommonWell will become an implementer of Carequality.
  • Carequality will "make a Carequality-compliant version of the CommonWell record locator service available to any provider organization participating in Carequality."
  • CommonWell and The Sequoia Project plan to explore potential future partnerships.

"To achieve nationwide interoperability that truly improves patient care, two things are required: collaboration across the healthcare industry and the will to take real action. We're doing both," said CommonWell Health Alliance Executive Director Jitin Asnaani.
