Direct is a national encryption standard for securely exchanging clinical healthcare data via the Internet. It is also known as the Direct Project, Direct Exchange and Direct Secure Messaging. It specifies the secure, scalable and standards-based method for the exchange of Protected Health Information (PHI). It was developed in 2010 under a part of a federal project for standards-based healthcare communications and is a key component in the next stage of electronic health record implementations for many hospitals, HIEs and providers. But what is Direct really, how does it work, and is it really core to a truly interoperable future for healthcare information exchange? Join this webinar to find out.
