"It was amazing how quickly we were able to integrate the DataMotion Direct technology with our MEDITECH EHR."
     -Darrel Whitmill, Meaningful Use Manager

 

Direct Secure Messaging is a national encryption standard for securely exchanging clinical healthcare data via the Internet. It specifies the secure, scalable and standards-based method for the exchange of Protected Health Information (PHI).

As a part of qualifying for incentive payments under the Meaningful Use Stage 2 criteria issued by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), healthcare organizations and providers must meet data transfer requirements using Direct Messaging.
