Sharing Information Between Providers
Health care providers (primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, clinical labs, etc.) can share information through a secure network using the information in the Direct Address List of Providers. Though the Direct address looks like an email address, it used to send and receive secure information into an electronic health record (EHR). It cannot be used by patients and their families to send messages to physicians, specialists, etc. Our primary current use is to receive referrals from community providers and to send Transition of Care reports to Primary Care offices.
