This morning, we announced our affiliation with CommonWell Health Alliance®, a non-profit trade association dedicated to the simple vision that health data should be available regardless of where care occurs.

This week, PokitDok and other individuals representing many of the near 50 CommonWell members are participating in the CommonWell Spring Summit in Kansas City.

“PokitDok shares our vision that health data should be accessible to providers and the people they serve. By adding PokitDok to our diverse membership, we can continue to break down the barriers that have stood in the way of nationwide data exchange.”  

-Nick Knowlton, Membership Committee Chair for CommonWell Health Alliance & Vice President at Brightree

After a strategic investment from McKesson Ventures earlier this year, MedCity News foreshadowed such an alliance, quoting McKesson Ventures Managing Director Tom Rodgers: 'With the goal of interoperability, [joining CommonWell] would be a good match [for PokitDok] because their interests are aligned'.
