Live Demonstrations of CommonWell Services at the HIMSS 17 Interoperability Showcase

Every you time you visit your health care provider, you mostly likely are faced with the daunting task of recalling your medical history – from yesterday to birth, in some cases. You fill out paper forms. You lug medical records from office to office. Or perhaps you decide it is too much work and just don’t share your clinical history. All of which leaves much to be desired in terms of ensuring you receive the best care possible.

For years, the HIT industry has been trying to solve for this.

CommonWell has made great strides in helping your providers (and you!) access your medical records regardless of where that care occurred, who provided it or what software system they are on.

Next week at HIMSS17 in Orlando, two CommonWell members – Brightree and Cerner – will be giving live demonstrations of their EHRs with CommonWell services built directly into the current provider workflow. Attendees will be able to watch as a patient navigates the health care system starting in an in-patient setting, moving to a home care setting and ultimately following up with her primary care physician (PCP).
