CommonWell Health Alliance Adds Health IT Vendor to HIE Network

Health IT vendor ModuleMD has joined the CommonWell Health Alliance to drive health information exchange (HIE) across its network of over 75,000 referral providers.

CommonWell Health Alliance has added health IT vendor ModuleMD to its national health information exchange (HIE) network.

CommonWell has recently experienced significant membership growth, operating at scale across more than 34,000 provider sites representing 218 million individuals on its nationwide network.

Integration into CommonWell's community will allow ModuleMD's provider network of over 75,000 referral providers to transfer and access patient data across the CommonWell network.

The integration poises ModuleMD as one of the first health IT vendors to join the new CommonWell platform, which will expand services for connected organizations and with Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) if designated a Qualified Health Information Network (QHIN) upon its anticipated Q1 2024 release.

Leveraging CommonWell's expansive health information exchange (HIE) platform alongside ModuleMD's EHR is set to boost streamlined care team collaboration for patient-centered care.

"We're excited to join a powerful force in the industry and be part of the solution to provide seamless data exchange in healthcare for the benefit of patients and providers across the county," Abhinay Penugonda, CEO of ModuleMD, said in a public statement. "We did a thorough review of interoperability partners with scale, and a robust roadmap for the future, including TEFCA, and CommonWell was an obvious choice for us."

This partnership represents a joint commitment to establishing a healthcare ecosystem that prioritizes the enhancement of interoperability and, ultimately, patient outcomes.

"As we kick off a New Year, we are excited to welcome ModuleMD into the CommonWell community," said Paul L. Wilder, Executive Director at CommonWell Health Alliance. "2024 is already gearing up to be an impactful year for health care, and our shared commitment to advancing interoperability will help us continue to drive transformative progress toward nationwide healthcare data exchange benefiting healthcare providers and patients alike."
