CommonWell Health Alliance and Carequality recently announced an agreement to increase HIT connectivity nationwide. The agreement provides additional health data sharing options to a broad range of stakeholders across health care, and has three aspects:

• CommonWell will become a Carequality implementer on behalf of its members and their clients, enabling CommonWell subscribers to engage in health information exchange through directed queries with any Carequality participant.

• Carequality will work with CommonWell to make a Carequality-compliant version of the CommonWell record locator service available to any provider organization participating in Carequality.

• CommonWell and The Sequoia Project, the nonprofit parent under which Carequality operates, have agreed to these initial connectivity efforts and will explore additional collaboration opportunities in the future.
