MedAllies Direct Solutions
MedAllies operates a leading national Direct network and
offers MedAllies Direct Solutions™, a suite of services that includes MedAllies Mail.
MedAllies’ Direct Solutions offerings build on years of successful health IT implementation in the Hudson Valley of New York. MedAllies evolved as clinical needs and technology became more sophisticated, and with that, a greater demand for the ability to move health information efficiently and effectively. MedAllies offers
- Technical expertise: As one of the ONC Reference Implementation sites for Direct and one of the initial pilot sites, MedAllies has provided Direct services since the Direct Project's inception. We also helped develop the Direct protocols: MedAllies contributed to the Specification Standards for Direct. We understand the technical and functional requirements of EHR vendors, health care organizations and providers, regardless of size or location. MedAllies Direct Solutions has already fully engaged clinicians along with their various EHR vendor partners in Direct efforts.
- Clinical expertise: Clinical involvement is at the core of our organization. We are doctors as well as health IT technical experts, and we understand how to work with physicians, physician organizations and health systems. MedAllies has its roots in supporting practice transformation through the patient-centered medical home and the patient-centered medical neighborhood.
- Adoption and use expertise: Because of our clinical and technical expertise, we provide efficient onboarding with technical and clinical support as practices and health systems deploy Direct. Over the years, MedAllies has leveraged EHR implementations to facilitate physician office redesign, improve office practice efficiencies and enhance population health.
- EHR interoperability: Since our inception, MedAllies has focused on provider transitions of care and EHR interoperability. As Direct emerged, it became clear to us that Direct could be much more than medical email and represents the EHR interoperability solution that the industry has been struggling with for years. Stage 2 Meaningful Use requires interoperability between different EHR systems using Direct. In 2014, we are seeing this grand opportunity unfold. Standards are in place with 2014 edition CEHRT, and EHR vendor end-to-end testing across HISPs is occurring now. MedAllies operates and offers an EHR interoperability lab to all 2014 edition CEHRT and EHNAC/DTAAP accredited HISPs at no charge. The sole purpose of this lab is to help eliminate disruption for EHR vendor customers as they begin fulfilling their MU2 10 percent transitions-of-care obligation.
