What is Direct Messaging?
Why is it important?
You need to share data (such as referrals, clinical messages, and test results) easily and securely. In addition, you need to communicate in a HIPAA-compliant fashion. For these reasons, the government launched the Direct Project in March 2010.
Direct Messaging enables easy, secure, anytime data sharing for your organization and community.
