Since 2019, our mission at The Commons Project has been to improve people’s lives by giving them greater control over their health data, ensuring that their interest is at the forefront. We are thrilled to announce that one of our public health services, CommonHealth, now has over 12,000 clinical data sources. Some of our most recent additions include Intermountain Healthcare along with their Cerner and Epic instances, and Memorial Hermann with eClinicalWorks.
CommonHealth brings long-overdue innovation to electronic health record systems and nearly half the population that uses an Android device, and offers the ability to advance and improve care while giving patients the tools they need to be an active participant in their own care. This means, in the long term, ensuring that the 2.5 billion Android users globally can securely access, store and share their medical data once the patient has provided authorization directly from their smartphone devices.
In practice, CommonHealth lets users see and share health data such as lab test results, immunizations, and medications from their records. This represents hundreds of thousands of care locations and providers nationwide, and the list is growing every day as more providers and electronic health record platforms become fully compliant with the 21st Century Cures Act, which supports seamless and secure use of electronic health information.
