St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
BuildYourEMR™ announced DirectEMR™; a suite of healthcare data exchange solutions using the Direct Project protocol to enable secure sharing of health information. DirectEMR enables healthcare organizations to meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for data exchange and patient engagement in a simple, cost-effective way that is compatible with most existing EMR solutions.
DirectEMR™ is available on a subscription basis as a hosted service for health care providers of all sizes – from private practices to the largest hospitals. DirectEMR includes two solutions.
DirectEMR Mail™ combines Microsoft Exchange Online with the Direct Project standards to offer a simple but powerful secure email service for less than $10 per month per provider. Users can send and receive secure email just like any normal email from browsers, email clients, and their mobile phones.
DirectEMR MU™ is a complete collaboration and communication solution with special focus on Patient Engagement. DirectEMR MU combines the features of DirectEMR Mail with Microsoft HealthVault to enable Blue Button functionality between patients-providers and providers-providers. Both services can quickly interface with existing EMR systems with little impact on infrastructure.
The benefits of a best of breed, cloud-based solution include rapid deployment, ease of access, simplified maintenance, and redundancy offered by Microsoft's datacenters. DirectEMR is built on the same framework used by BuildYourEMR (previously known as 1 Connect HePoEx EHR), the first Microsoft® Cloud Services based ONC-ATCB certified Complete EHR. Dr. Bill Crounse, Senior Director, Microsoft Worldwide Health defined BuildYourEMR as the “next generation of cloud computing”.
DirectEMR MU is currently under pilot program and will be certified as a modular EHR in May, 2013. DirectEMR Mail and DirectEMR MU are available for vendors to integrate into health information exchanges, patient portals, existing EMRs, or other clinical systems.
