CommonWell Health Alliance, an effort of health information technology companies to cooperate on systems interoperability issues, has named its board of directors.

The directors comprise one representative for each of the seven vendors that are part of the alliance. Formed in early 2013 to define, promote and certify a national infrastructure with common platforms and policies, initial work has focused on trying to solve the issue of matching patients to their data across disparate I.T. systems and organizations. Other priorities include patient consent and data access management technology, and patient record locator and directed query services.

CommonWell members commit to collaborating with all HIT developers and invite other vendors and stakeholders to join. Members of the Board of Directors include Jeremy Delinsky, CTO at athenahealth, as chair; Rich Elmore, vice president of strategic initiatives at Allscripts, as vice chair; Bob Robke, vice president at Cerner overseeing connectivity, as treasurer; and Rod O’Reilly, senior vice president of strategy and business development at McKesson, as secretary. Other members are Scott Schneider, executive vice president of CPSI; Justin Barnes, vice president of industry and government affairs at Greenway Medical; and Keith Laughman, executive vice president of community care solutions at Sunquest.
