Influence Health Becomes Member of CommonWell Health Alliance

Influence Health, healthcare’s only personalized digital consumer engagement and activation platform, is pleased to announce its general membership with CommonWell Health Alliance. CommonWell, a non-profit trade association, is dedicated to the mission that health data should be available to providers and patients, regardless of where care occurs.

CommonWell is aimed at enabling healthcare providers to manage patient identity, support consent management, and facilitate better coordination along the broad care continuum. Provider access to this data must be built-in health IT, at a reasonable cost for use by a broad range of healthcare providers and the people they serve. Today, CommonWell members are live with these services at 60 provider sites ranging from large acute hospitals to rural specialty practices. CommonWell expects to enable at least 5,000 provider sites to be live on the services nationwide by the end of 2015.. Membership is open to healthcare-centric organizations, systems and vendors—all those who share CommonWell’s drive for interoperability.

“Influence Health shares our vision that health data should be accessible to individuals and providers, regardless of where they receive care,” said Nick Knowlton, Membership Committee Chair, CommonWell Health Alliance and Vice President, Brightree. “We are confident that as we continue to add members such as Influence Health, we can expand our coverage and accelerate the nationwide expansion of real-world interoperability services.”

“Influence Health and CommonWell share the mutual vision that it is critical for patient data to be easily accessible, in real-time, to ensure providers have the information they need to make informed decisions for quality care and so patients are able to effectively manage their health, wherever they receive care,” stated Bradley D. Case, CMPE, General Manager, Clinical Solutions, Influence Health. “We look forward to participating in CommonWell Health Alliance as leaders in healthcare technology work together to improve interoperability and ultimately the patient experience,” Case continued.

Influence Health joins CommonWell’s diverse group of members in pursuit of the Alliance’s goal of providing better care and outcomes for providers and the people they serve.
