During the webinar, Nieto will discuss what Direct is, how it works, how it is being deployed today, where it is headed, and if it is really core to a truly interoperable future for healthcare information exchange.

The event is sponsored by the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), the leading authority on the use of health IT to improve healthcare information exchange in order to enhance the quality of care, improve efficiency and to reduce costs of the American healthcare system. WEDI is a coalition comprised of a cross-section of the healthcare industry: doctors, hospitals, health plans, laboratories, pharmacies, clearinghouses, dentists, vendors, government regulators and other industry stakeholders.

Direct, also commonly referred to as Direct Exchange and Direct Securing 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). Direct was developed in 2010 as part of a federal project for standards-based healthcare communications and is a key component in the next stage of electronic health record implementation for many hospitals, health information exchanges (HIEs) and providers.
