CareCloud, a leading provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health record (EHR), and medical billing software and services, announced today that it is joining CommonWell Health Alliance as a Contributing Member. CommonWell, a non-profit trade association, is dedicated to the vision that health data should be available regardless of where care occurs. Furthermore, provider access to this data should be built into health IT at a reasonable cost for use by a broad range of health care providers and the people they serve.
CommonWell is aimed at enabling health care providers to manage patient identity, support consent management, and facilitate better coordination along the broad care continuum. Today, CommonWell members are live with these services at more than 10 provider sites ranging from large acute hospitals to rural specialty practices. Thousands of people have enrolled since services launched in January 2014 and dozens of clinicians are leveraging these services daily.
“One of the founding principles of CareCloud was that healthcare should be open, with data flowing freely in support of better patient care,” said Albert Santalo, Founder and CEO of CareCloud. “We have admired CommonWell’s work to make this a reality across our industry by bringing the key stakeholders together. CareCloud is excited to join CommonWell, as this will ultimately allow our clients to further support care coordination and efficiency.”
“CommonWell is committed to providing interoperability services that enable health care information to be accessed across the care continuum,” said Nick Knowlton, Membership Committee chair for CommonWell Health Alliance and Vice President at Brightree. “CareCloud’s participation is critical to helping us expand and improve our services.”
