Launched in March 2010 as a part of the federal government’s Nationwide Health Information Network, the Direct Project was created to specify a simple, secure, scalable, standards-based way for participants to send authenticated, encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the Internet. This supports the Affordable Care Act’s Meaningful Use
requirements—a set of standards and best practices adopted by the ONC to ensure health care providers implement electronic health records optimally. MedAllies was a founding member of the original Direct Project workgroup.
Direct supports health information flow, offering true interoperability.
MedAllies is considered a national leader by ONC and the EHR industry for use of Direct for EHR interoperability and operates a leading national Direct network.
