Direct Secure Email for Hospitals

There is a great deal of information and many factors to consider when selecting a Health Information Service Provider (HISP) for your hospital to provide Direct messaging services to meet Meaningful Use Stage 2. Hospitals that use MEDITECH or Epic electronic health records (EHRs) need to contract separately with a HISP to exchange transitions of care using the Direct protocol.

In order to have the most efficient, complete information exchange with the maximum reach, hospitals need to consider HISPs that have complete accreditation in order to avoid working with separate vendors to manage multiple certifications. Hospitals should also consider HISPs that are experienced in EHR integration for smooth implementations and ongoing integration.
