Direct Secure Messaging for Epic

HUMCcasestudy2.fwJoin other Epic hospitals meeting CMS deadlines and collecting  Meaningful Use Stage 2 (MU2) incentive money using DataMotion Direct, a cost effective secure messaging service for sharing medical records with patients and other providers.

  • Secure, interoperable and compliant with MU2 requirements
  • Proven Epic EMR integration support
  • Deploys rapidly to meet MU2 attestation schedules
  • Facilitates Direct addressing to virtually any affiliate provider
  • Easily sends CCDs via Direct messages to providers outside home network

Direct Secure Messaging (Direct) is part of multiple MU2 core measures. While Epic Care Everywhere can natively support Direct for communicating with outside providers, an accredited Health Information Services Provider (HISP) can help to connect with non-Epic providers, especially if the Healthcare organization is trying to connect to providers on many different EHRs and EMRs.

As an accredited HISP with proven Epic interoperability, DataMotion is ideally positioned to help Epic users achieve MU2 attestation success.

How It Works

Working with Epic, DataMotion established interoperability between EpicCare EMR and DataMotion Direct using the cross-enterprise document reliable interchange protocol (XDR). As a result, DataMotion is a reliable source for Direct services for EpicCare EMR customers.
