Orion Health Releases Secure Messaging
Mar 07, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Orion Health announced Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging v2.0, a health information service provider and product suite that provides connectivity to the national Direct Messaging network.
According to a release, Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging offers electronic communication among healthcare providers.
Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging can be used as a stand-alone solution or can be deployed with Orion Health HIE.
"The healthcare provider landscape is highly fragmented and heterogeneous, and therefore there is no one-size-fits-all solution to health information exchange. Orion Health's ability to provide a variety of data exchange tools and integration methods is a critical driver of widespread adoption of HIE services in Massachusetts and New Hampshire," said Micky Tripathi, president and CEO of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative. "We are excited that Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging v2.0 offers secure communications for any healthcare organization, regardless of size or technology resources, which will more broadly help providers improve care coordination and meet Meaningful Use requirements."
"Orion Health has always been a leader in the development of clinician-friendly solutions that improve efficiency and enable providers to improve the quality of patient care," said Paul Viskovich, president of Orion Health North America. "With Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging, clinicians at healthcare entities of all sizes and technological capabilities can securely communicate and collaborate with their peers not only across the continuum of patient care but also across the region, state or even country."
Orion Health Direct Secure Messaging v2.0 includes access to the Company's Direct Secure Messaging HISP, a standards-based service that enables verified and secure exchange of clinical information with users of other Direct HISP networks.
New features in version 2.0 include an integrated webmail client that offers enhanced clinical viewing capabilities, integration with Direct-compliant electronic health record systems and an integrated trusted provider directory for the identification of external recipients. The offering also includes managed services such as certificate management, audit trails and 24/7 support.
